Dear Commander Community,
“You’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” -- A.A. Milne.
Commanders, as we roll into the week before a week-long break (starting 11/23/20), I want to take a moment to remind you that you have the skills, the perseverance, and the heart to overcome whatever challenges come your way. But, if you need support, we are here to help. Please check out the numerous resources available for support that we have available to you at JFK by clicking here. Additionally, please remember that your teachers are available during asynchronous class time and office hours on Friday from 2:25 to 3:10 to provide you with small group support. All students can also access 24/7 tutors that speak Spanish and English for tutoring in any of your subject areas. Simply go to Paper.co and log in through Google using your DPS login credentials. Reach out to me or another trusted administrator or BAM squad member during school hours as another layer of support and guidance.
Parents and guardians, we offer several ways for you to get involved and/or learn more about how to connect as a Commander Community and learn how to better support your student at home. See below for resources that you can utilize to stay more informed. Please complete this survey to let us know times/days that you are available to participate in Town Halls and topics you would like to discuss, currently Town Halls meet every other Wednesday here from 5 - 6PM. Additionally, if you’d like to join our PTSA, Commander Connection, or our ELA PAC (English Language Acquisition Parent Advisory Committee) please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
She, her, hers and why they matter
