On behalf of all the John Jay High School staff, it’s my pleasure to welcome you back to school.
We’re all looking forward to an enjoyable and productive 2017-18 school year filled with incredible learning experiences and happy memories that will last forever. Whether you’re entering John Jay High School as a freshman or gearing up for your senior year, it’s important to all of us that you know you are valued and cared for.
High school passes by very quickly, so be sure to take advantage of all the opportunities and experiences John Jay has to offer. Take part in our vast club, athletic, and extracurricular offerings. It’s important for you to feel comfortable and connected here- delve into something that interests you, or something that’s new. Use these years to find yourself in a safe climate that encourages you to take risks without pressure or fear.
I also hope I’ll get to know more of you as the year progresses. Please stop in, say hello and tell me all the good things that are happening for you in your class activities. I’m most interested in learning about your experiences at John Jay, including your feedback on ways we can improve your experience.
Challenge yourselves, get involved, and connect with others. You will always remember those experiences.
Wishing you all a most successful school year.
