It is with tremendous gratitude that I write the final newsletter piece for this school year. Thank you parents, students and community members who helped support our transition from blended learning to a more typical high school system. Thank you for pivoting each time we needed to, and for giving our school grace when we in turn needed it. We met my biggest goal for the school year - in person school every day.
Along with more typical teaching and learning we also jumped back in to more typical activities, both athletic and otherwise. Over 70% of our student body are involved in something, and research tells us that involvement correlates to increased student success. As we all continue our personal journeys out of the pandemic, we want to encourage all our Crimson Bears to consider how they might get involved in a school activity next year. From Alpine club to Dungeons and Dragons we believe that there is something for everyone. As notices begin arriving in July to advertise orientation and activities please ask your student what they might be interested in!
For our summer school students we will see you June 1st. We have a robust course offering list, designed to get all of our students closer to credit current to start the year in August. For our graduating seniors, best of luck as you say so long to JDHS and hello to the road ahead. We have been through quite a unique experience for your four years. For all of you, please enjoy the summer months away from the business of school. Spend time outside, spend time together and be intentional in seeking moments of joy.
Classes of 2023, 2024, 2025 and our newest class of 2026 we will see you in August. Go bears!
