Principal Notes - April 28, 2021

NO SCHOOL ON FRIDAY, APRIL 30  We hope you will take the day and do something fun!  The office will be closed.  Friday is a no school day which means students do not have to report online or come to school.  Enjoy the 3-day weekend!

BOOSTERS MEETING IS MONDAY, MAY 3  Join Boosters for the last meeting of the year!  Join using the Zoom link at 6pm.  If you have not been able to join a meeting, please save the date and come see what they are all about!

SPRINGTIME AT JA MEANS DRESS CODE REMINDERS  With the warmer temperatures finally coming around, we want to remind our students and families of the dress code standards at Jefferson Academy.  Please make sure that shorts and skirts are an appropriate length (mid-thigh or longer).  Even though the sun’s out, we want to make sure that the guns (arms) are the only things that are out.  To read more about the dress code, please visit the Resources page on our website or click on the Dress Code link here.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE JA COMMUNITY!  Once again, our students have achieved high enough to be ranked as one of the Best High Schools in the nation.  Of the 24,000 public high schools, JA is among the top 10% of the 17,000 ranked schools.  Why aren’t we #1 you ask?  It is because the rankings are largely based on AP/IB participation rates among our Seniors.  Because we concentrate on concurrent enrollment (college class credit) instead of AP, it works against our score which makes this recognition even better.  We were ranked without even trying!  Way to go, JA!  

Have a great week, Jags!
