Dear JJ Families,
I’m writing to share some very exciting news! I am very pleased to announce that our very own Mrs. Schmitt has been appointed as the new Principal of Sunnyside School, effective August. She is very deserving of this appointment and Sunnyside is one lucky school to get her!
Mrs. Schmitt has been an integral part of the learning community at Janet Johnstone for the past 4 years. Personally, she has been an assistant AND co-principal with me for the past 2 years, she’s become a very good friend, and a tremendous mentor. I have learned so much from working alongside her during my time at JJ.
I know I am not alone in my sentiments about Mrs. Schmitt. I am confident in my belief that the staff, our students and parents have been positively impacted by her work. Mrs. Schmitt builds such positive relationships with everyone that crosses her path. Our entire school community should be proud of her new accomplishment but we will also deeply feel the loss of her presence each day.
I am working closely with our Area 6 Education Director on finding the just right Assistant Principal to join our team at JJ. We are hopeful that we can fill Mrs. Schmitt’s shoes before the end of the school year. Once we have hired for the position, we will share the news with you as promptly as possible.
Please join me in congratulating Mrs. Schmitt on this tremendous accomplishment! Feel free to send her an email with how you or your child have been positively impacted by her work- I know she would love to hear from you! email@example.com
Way to go, Mrs. Schmitt!
Principal, Janet Johnstone School
