Dear Students and Families,
On behalf of the LAJH faculty and staff, we would like to welcome our new students and our returning students to the 2018-2019 school year. We are excited about the opportunities this year brings for each of us, and we look forward to seeing all of you on the first day of school, August 14th.
I would like to take this opportunity to offer my sincere thanks and appreciation to our custodial staff. They worked diligently throughout the summer to clean and ready the school, and our buildings and grounds look spectacular.
Our teachers and support staff have also spent hours preparing materials, creating student-centered classrooms, and reviewing data in preparation for the new school year. While we often think of the summer as a fun, relaxing time, our faculty and staff still work diligently to ensure a successful school year for our students and their families. I am grateful for all of the hard work that goes into making LAJH a fantastic school.
I would also like to extend a special welcome to our incoming seventh-grade students or those who are new to our school. You are a welcome addition to our Tiger Family. Please know that we are here to support you as you make your transition to LAJH.
We are looking forward to watching the students stream off of the buses, out of cars and into the hallways filled with the hustle and bustle that has been absent all summer. After all, the students are what make school, well, a school.
