From the Principal: Steven T. Siciliano, Ed.D.

July 7, 2016

Dear John Jay Community,

Thank you so very much for the opportunity to serve you as Principal of John Jay High School.  It is indeed an honor to be a part of the Katonah-Lewisboro School District and I am humbled by the trust that has been placed in me.

My goal is to continue the tradition of excellence at John Jay by ensuring a school environment where everyone knows they matter, is connected to one another, and dedicated to providing ALL students every opportunity to reach her/his potential. In order to know and understand all of John Jay's proud traditions, I will begin by listening to all of you.

I have developed an entry plan that will allow me to spend extended time with all groups within the John Jay High School community.  I look forward to hearing your insights, histories, and aspirations as I learn from them as I introduce myself to you.

For all members of the John Jay High School community, I have created an online survey that will be brief (7 questions) and can be found at  Please try to access and answer the survey by October 1st.  Once all the survey data is compiled, I will report the findings to the entire school community for review and discussion by late fall.  With this information, all of us will have had the opportunity to get to know what each other is thinking and use the information gleaned to assist in understanding where John Jay High School is and where we would like it to go.

The PTO has been most pro-active and has set up a series of 4 coffees this summer and another 4 during the fall.  I hope you can attend one of them to share your perspectives and hear those of your neighbors.  The PTO will email the dates and times in addition to posting them on its webpage.

For those who wish to share their thoughts with me personally, I have also set up times for different groups within the community to meet with me. I certainly hope you will fill out the questionnaire and come in so we can indeed meet face to face. Please contact Barbara Semenetz at 914-763-7212 to schedule a time.

I look forward to engaging in this work with you, earning your respect, and developing a positive working relationship with you in the service of our students and the Katonah- Lewisboro community.

Enjoy the summer and I look forward to seeing all of you soon.
