BJJH Weekly Update

August 16th - 20th

Success Begins Here...Enter With No Fear


As principal of Bernarda Jaime Jr. High School, it is a great privilege to welcome everyone back to school this year. I celebrate as I reflect on the successes that took place at BJJH during the 2020-2021 school year. It gives me great joy to know of the fantastic things that will be occurring at BJJH during the 2021-2022 school year. Several initiatives are currently being planned to serve the student population both in and out of the classroom. The different initiatives will aid students succeed academically, become savvier in technology, and push for more participation in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. This year's mantra for our campus is, "Success Begins Here...Enter With No Fear." BJJH will continue to be an environment where all individuals will be safe and be able to achieve to their fullest potential. Together we will all continue to work as the Rider Family and we will have a successful school year at BJJH.


Together We Are Rider Strong,


Dr. Ruben Peña
