October 18, 2016
Thank you for everything you’ve done to help make the start of this school year run so smoothly.
John Jay High School is everything I expected and was told it would be. It’s a place where people care about each other and strive to be their best selves in everything they do. It’s been inspiring watching your start this school year and I expect you all to accomplish what you set your minds to. You are a special group of young people and I am proud to be working with you as your principal.
Building positive relationships with you is very important to me. In order to build that relationship, we need to interact and talk about things that concern you and/or all the good things you’re doing. Please feel free to stop by my office whenever you’re free. I’d love to talk with you and get to know you better.
It’s also understood there are things currently on your mind. Students have reached out to me individually and in other small group forums. These first conversations have been very appropriate and respectful, as we listened to each other’s perspectives and sought to understand them. I invite you to continue talking with me and your Assistant Principals. We all want you to be safe, connected, productive, and successful.
The most practical venue to have these larger discussions is Campus Congress. There we have more time to delve into the areas of school life that affect you, give you a voice, and to help us work collaboratively in generating solutions that help meet everyone’s needs.
Thank you for reaching out and I’m looking forward to talking with you.

As you know, we are experiencing a transition in our Special Services leadership and are fortunate to be welcoming David Feller as Interim Director of Special Services. Mr. Feller most recently served as the Superintendent of Schools in the North Merrick School District for the last 15 years. Prior to that, he was a district-wide administrator for special services in the East Williston School District for 14 years. He has his master's degree in Special Education from Teachers College, Columbia University. He began his career as a special education teacher. Mr. Feller will begin working in the District on October 17.
Until his arrival, if you have a student related need, we ask that you contact the appropriate Special Education Supervisor, either Cindy Greenberg (email@example.com) or Catherine McNulty (firstname.lastname@example.org), depending on your child's grade level.
If you have a question or concern that you don't think is related to your child's particular needs, or if you simply aren't sure who to contact, please reach out to Sue Fowler, email@example.com, 914-763-7010.
Please note that the Katonah-Lewisboro School District offices have moved to the John Jay High School campus, 60 North Salem Road, Cross River.
