Kindergarten and first grade students have celebrated 100 days of school. It's Science Fair season. Spring sports are starting. Thank you to all who attended our community forum last week.

Celebrating Presidents Day 

Second graders heard stories of grit and the power of following one's dreams in programs about Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and others.

Lincoln educator Lou Del Bianco visited Meadow Pond Elementary School and Katonah Elementary School with a message of perseverance. MORE. Jonathan Sprout inspired Increase Miller Elementary second graders with songs and stories of American heroes. MORE. 

Math, Anime, Music & More

John Jay Middle School has more than twenty clubs, with over 400 participants! These include enrichment clubs, performance clubs, competition clubs, service clubs and leadership clubs. 

Read about the Math Counts Club, the Anime Club, and the Not2#s--just some of the enrichment that happens after the school day ends.  

Holocaust Survivor To Visit 

Mrs. Judith Altman, a Holocaust survivor, will tell her story to students at John Jay High School on February 23 and 24.

Her two biggest messages: "Learn all you can because no one can take it away from you," and "If you see any injustice in the world, stand up. Don't just say it doesn't concern me."

This presentation was set up by the student leaders of John Jay High School Campus Congress.
