A WORD FROM THE PRINCIPALJr Jags,
Welcome back to school for the 2020-2021 school year.
The administration, teachers, and staff have missed you very much over the last several months. Last spring you showed us all just how courageous and resilient you are. This year will also begin very differently and we will need you to tap into that JAG Spirit again so that you will continue to learn and grow to your potential. We are all looking forward to that day in which all of us can be together on our campus again for learning, but for now we will put our best foot forward working remotely.
Welcome new kindergarten students! We are very happy that you are now a part of the JAG Family. You have found a special place in YES. We look forward to giving you the best launch of your academic journey!
I would also like to welcome our new assistant principal, Mrs. Jamie Davis Burgins, who I know you are going to enjoy getting to know and work with.
Parents, all of us know that you are up against many challenges during this time. We will make every effort to connect with you, communicate with you, and engage your child in learning. There will be some bumps along the way, but we are committed to finding solutions. We will continue to focus on four key things - relationships, communication, organization, and expectations. Those factors will continue to guide us as we navigate Plan C, remote learning.
This period of remote learning will be different from what we did last spring. Students will be engaged more often during the day, we will take attendance each day, and grades will be assigned for work. It is important that we set that tone early and we will support you every step of the way.
Please take time to view your child’s grade level virtual presentations and other links on our website to help you prepare for the year. Again, welcome to the new school year!
