Dear John Jay Community,
The start of a new school year is always special. While summer vacations are both necessary and fun, there comes a time when students are missing their friends, teachers are missing their students, and parents are missing the regular rhythms and routines of life synonymous with having school-aged children. It’s time to begin anew.
All of the necessary preparations are being completed as we welcome our students back to John Jay High School on September 5th. Our hope is that students avail themselves to everything the high school has to offer. We seek to engage our students both academically and socially, help students explore what is meaningful to them, and see them contribute as valued members of this very special learning community.
As we welcome back our returning sophomores, juniors, and seniors, well-established routines will commence in order to set expectations for students and getting them off to a good start. Our incoming freshman will also receive all the necessary guidance to fully welcome and integrate them into their new school. We look forward to building and maintaining strong bonds with all our students and their families and making positive life-long memories.
Parents are encouraged to stay connected by perusing the high school’s webpage and our bi-weekly bulletins that being arriving via email on September 7. This bi-weekly bulletin hopes to keep the community up to date as to important building events and dates.
Thank you for all your ongoing support as we anticipate a wonderful 2018-19 school year. Enjoy the rest of the summer and we look forward to starting school on September 5th.
Steven T. Siciliano, Ed.D.
