Dear students, parents, teachers, staff members and community members Eleven years ago, when Juvenile English Medium School was still a kernel in need of rigorous care and nourishment, the question was HOW? HOW are we going to establish an institution that will one day become a trade mark in education and services? HOW can we ensure that our academic establishment is there to grow and gain a solid reputation? And above all, HOW can we make a difference in society? Year after year, we nurtured the kernel through a sound balance of quality educational programs, state-of-art facilities, superior services, and an open house policy. The kernel was constantly cultivated and grew into a school that has accomplished a great deal over the years. An immense portion of credit in this regard is attributed to you parents, students, teachers, staff members, and the community… so thank you. Students, you bring such joy and happiness to our school. We are truly fortunate to have such a wonderful group of children at Juvenile English Medium School. My friends and family often laugh at me when I refer to you as “my kids,” but I think of each of you as my own children. You have touched my life and this school by your presence. Parents, it has been my pleasure getting to know not only your child, but you as well. Having parental support and open lines of communication is an essential part of any successful school year. Thank you for all you have done to make our year so fulfilling and memorable. Teachers, Your dedication, love and hard works for this profession have enlightened our students’ hearts and lives. I am grateful and thankful to you for walking along with us and nurturing the kernel into a plant. We still are growing and I encourage you to work hard in school, set goals for our students, and help them to stay focused on those goals. I want to thank my students who worked for this year book. Their hard work and dedication made this successful. I hope forwarding years you’ll bring more attractions in the year book. Any successes that we have as a school are only possible because of the partnership that we have with JEMS families and our entire community. I want each of you to know that our staff is dedicated to making JEMS a school we can all be proud of. It is our sincere goal that each and every one of our students graduate with the skills to be successful in their chosen path. With highly-qualified, innovative, and caring teachers as well as a kind and dedicated support staff, we will continue to build on the JEMS’s legacy as a school that families are proud to send their kids to. We believe that all of our students can achieve and we work hard to have a culture JEMS that cares for our kids academically, emotionally, and socially. I have been working since 2007 and am proud to be your Principal. I am looking forward to a fantastic school year as we continue our work together.
