Dear Parents and Students:
We are fortunate to have with us:
In addition to these new faculty members, Cheryl Matthew will be the new Front Office Attendance Clerk, Rick Martin will be the new Special Education Instructional Paraprofessional, and Jo Beach will be the new Sign-In Desk Receptionist.
In anticipation of the start of the 2008-2009 school year, please make note of the following dates and events:
This school year you will notice a change regarding the safety and security of James Monroe
High School. All visitors to the building will be asked to leave a picture ID at the sign in desk. This measure is to ensure the continued safe and nurturing environment at James Monroe, and your cooperation is appreciated. With your assistance, we look forward to a very rewarding school year.
I would like to extend a welcome to all new students and families to the 2008-09 school year; and a “Welcome Back” to all those who are returning.
I am excited about the prospects that are ahead of us – we will be diving into the world of Block Scheduling. I am confident that we will see an immediate positive impact on student learning. JM teachers have spent countless hours preparing for the upcoming year, through professional development opportunities over the Summer.
Please enjoy this new communication network; I lookforward to working with you all.
