Summer Message from the Principal

August 3, 2021

Welcome back to the 2021-22 academic year!

We have weathered the storm of the pandemic. We have done our best to continue to maintain excellence, high expectations, and “heart” work during the time we were away from a building we call home.

On September 8, 2021 we will FULLY reopen with our entire staff and students ready to pick up where we left- but now WE all have the title: HERO !

What is a hero? A person who defies incredible odds, a person who puts 100% in everything that they do- a person that no matter what the challenges are can and does overcome any and every obstacle. We have all met this criteria therefore: A HERO LIES IN YOU! Parents, staff, and definitely our students! 

As we prepare for the upcoming school year- we are ensuring that every opportunity is made available for us all to remain safe. Every opportunity is made to keep teaching and learning at the forefront of what we do. Every effort is being made to return to a sense of family at Joyce Kilmer School.

HEROES: Are you ready for the challenge? 

Let’s Go! 

Paula P. Bethea, Principal
