PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE FROM DR. REMY

Happy May!!!

  • For the month of May, we celebrate Asian Pacific and Haitian American Heritage.

  • A huge thank you to all families that supported our amazing Jaguars by attending events this past month: UA Community Trip to the Bronx Zoo, Tranquil Tuesday, School Leadership Team, Real Talk, NYSESLAT Parent Workshop and Family Fun Fridays each week

  • Health and Safety: As of April 27th, all students will receive four COVID test kits each week.

  • School Culture:

    • College and Career Week will take place from May 9th through May 13th, where students will learn about a variety of careers and colleges. If you are interested in volunteering to share information about your career, please reach out to your child’s teacher and complete the parent volunteer slip.

    •  Please be reminded that we are a uniform school. Please visit our website to purchase uniforms.

    • Kindergarten Mother’s Day Tea Party is on Friday May 6th.

    • JCS Senior Week: May 16th – 20th

  • Instruction: Attendance is extremely important! Please ensure that you are sending your child to school each day on time. Missing a day of school disrupts the learning process. Each month, the class with the highest attendance will be rewarded with a pizza and ice cream party. Students are to be in the school-issued royal blue with the logo and khaki bottoms each day.
