Commander Communicator

A Message From Principal Almon

Dear Commanders,

Celebrations like Lunar New Year and Black History Month remind me that life is short, but impact is lasting. 

Commanders, I applaud your impact! You strive toward excellence, work in service of collective success, and lead with humanity. These habits of professionalism are embodied by all my role models and mentors, past and present — CJ Madam Walker, Michelle Obama, andNguyen Thi Phuong Thao.

The work of researcher James Clear shows that these habits do not occur by accident. He writes that in order to make a big impact, you must “Be the designer of your world and not merely the consumer of it.” At JFK, our February PRIDE value of professionalism begins with the way we orient ourselves toward our work. I am grateful to work among designers.

Please read below for some of the ways Commanders are stepping up to make an impact below:  

Shout out to our Honor Platoon who brought home several trophies for top performances in San Antonio last weekend, to our Unified Basketball Team who showed great sportsmanship at their first tournament, and to our Black Student Alliance and Native American Advisory for collaborating to plan Black History Month Events. Shout out to the parents who showed so much support at our Black Family Alliance Meeting and for those parents who have signed up to join our PTSA, Commander Connection!

Have a Commander Kind of Day!

Tiffany Almon, Proud and Grateful Principal

She, her, hers, and why they matter

Take Command of Your Future!
