I hope your week is going well.  On Monday, May 3, we experienced a silver-lining moment within the conditions of Distance Learning: The JLS Staff and I participated in 8th Grade Conversations.  These were intentional meetings with each of our current 8th grade students, and they followed our long-standing tradition of 8th Grade Exit Interviews.  ...

Today we saw the largest number of in-person students so far all year: 461! (This includes our 190 Hybrid 6th grade students and our 271 7th and 8th grade students).

It’s hard to believe we now have fewer than five weeks to go!

I hope you are looking forward to Spring Break.  This has certainly been a challenging time, and my own children (a 7th grade daughter and 5th grade son) are very excited to have a break from their own school routines.  I hope that you and your loved ones enjoy the time Spring Break provides to rest, relax, and rejuvenate.   

However, before we get to Spring Break, we do have a few important reminders and announcements for you to be aware of. ...
