Dear John Jay Community,
Last week, Superintendent Selesnick notified the community in a letter explaining how the school district has secured greeters to be placed in each of the schools in order to serve the community and assist in keeping all of our schools safe.
John Jay High School is pleased to introduce Mr. Henry Neil as its greeter (see picture). In the search for a well-qualified individual, it was important the person selected would positively connect with our students, staff, and community. Mr. Neil has extensive experience in this role, most recently with Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla. He impressed us greatly with his gentlemanly demeanor, ethic of service, and his commitment to maintaining a welcoming and safe environment for all who enter John Jay High School.
Please join us in welcoming Mr. Neil as a part of the JJHS team.
Steven T. Siciliano, Ed.D.

A conversation between music teachers Amy Geiger, at John Jay High School, and Carly Spaeth, Director of our Elementary Band program, resulted a collaborative work between high school and elementary school students. Six high school musicians mentored 5th grade band members at Increase Miller Elementary School for a month, culminating in an evening concert at IMES on February 6th.
"Our high schoolers were thrilled at the opportunity to give back to the program!" said Ms. Geiger. Thank you Henry King (tuba), Jackson Mingle and Bailey Owen (both trombone), Jack Bandon (percussion), and Liam Richardson and Jack Buckley (both trumpet). MORE PHOTOS.
