Hello James Madison Academic Campus (JMAC) families, this is your principal Mr. Gregory Y. Ogunbowale. As we still celebrate some of our successes from the 2013-2014 school year: improved attendance, improved culture, closed the achievement gap, reduction in disruptions, improved community relations and others, we look forward to even greater things in the 2014-2015 school year.
We hope that your summer is going great, and we hope that our students keep reading and stay active during the summer time.
JMAC is improving on the opportunities we can offer our students and families. We are partnering with the National Academy Foundation (NAF) to establish two career academies: The Academy of Health Sciences and the Academy of Finance. These academies will prepare our students for post secondary education and the world of work. Students who complete academy course work will be awarded certificates that they can use to gain immediate employment in related careers. Some of our business partners are promising to give preference to our students with certificates when employing new workers. So please share this information with your children and neighbors.
We expect our students to come back to school ready to learn; there will be no time to waste. The district is introducing new data processing tool called “infinite campus”, the school and your families will utilize this tool to share information and communication. So please ask questions about this and look to a better and improved means of communication between the school and homes.
We will be sharing more information with you as summer goes on. Looking forward to a great year.
