Welcome Back - We are really off to a great start to the school year. We have alot of new faces and are welcoming back old friends. While I miss our graduates, I am excited to come to school every day and watch everyone busy and learning in classes. Our student of the week this week is Josh Stevens.

Welcome BBQ

We had a great time at the BBQ tonight. We had a big crowd of returning students, new students, and many, many family members. We had burgers, hot dogs, and all the fixings. Two lucky winners went home with a brand new ipod! Everyone got a t-shirt, and a bookbag with goodies inside. We are off to an exciting start. If you missed it, make sure to check in with us to find out when the next event will take place. I hope to see you there.

There are great things happening at JCTS.

This year, Jeniffer Montano won an essay contest sponsored by the NYC Department of Education, and went to South Africa for a week and met Nelson Mandela! She had a great time and we are so proud of her.

We got a $35,000 grant from the City Council to purchase SmartBoards. They are fantastic and we are looking forward to using them in classes in the fall.

In the spring, 25 students went on a 2-day trip and visited several colleges upstate. They had a great time and a couple of them received acceptance letters on the spot at the college of their choice!

We are also very proud of Kendall, who graduated from college in June - Congratulations!

These are just a few of the things happening at JCTS - check back again for more news and upcoming events.
