Weekly Message from the Head of School

Knight Notes January 20, 2021

Dear JPII Community,

Tuesday marked the 100th day of us being open and operating under COVID protocols, and today, we are at zero cases of COVID for students, faculty, and staff. I want to congratulate everyone on a job well done. The hard work and collaboration are paying off.

We continue to hold middle school information meetings, and the community has shown a lot of interest in the program. At this point, we have exceeded early projections on applications. This week we will begin accepting our first group of middle school students and expect to fill the middle school program in February. If your family or friends have a potential student for our middle school, now is the time to reach out to us and apply.

Last week during a PAC Zoom meeting, I presented how we will support the high school and middle school programs on one campus. One strategy is to manage our high school enrollment size, making the return of your enrollment contract essential. Second, we will remodel the library to expand our innovation and entrepreneurship program. Finally, we are working with our architect on adding a state of the art athletic field house on campus that will serve athletic programs for the years to come; our board of trust will lead the initiative. Even with the addition of the middle school, facility improvements, and the expansion of an athletic facility, we still maintained our tuition rates without an increase for next year. We will be sharing a more detailed presentation of our inspiring plans soon. These are exciting times at JPII, and we are pleased that you are a part of it.
