Welcome Back Letter from Mr. Leggat
Dear School Community,
Welcome to Joel P. Jensen Middle School, home of the Panthers! JPJ is a Growth Mindset school, and our theme this year is "Rise Above!" There are so many things that can weigh us down in life, from depression to bullying to even the Corona-virus. It is our opportunity to work together as a community of learners to rise above those things. We are stronger together as we support one another.
My challenge to each of us this year is to look for ways to help our fellow students and friends get over and through the issues they are dealing with. Sometimes it takes several people, from our peers to our teachers and counselors. But with the right attitude and right support, we can overcome anything!
Rise Above, Panthers!!!
