Principal's Message

Dear JTA Families,

Welcome back to school!

I hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer. I also hope you are recharged and ready to start a new school year. I am so delighted that you are part of our amazing learning community. I welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and I look forward to working with you and your children.

All signs point to an incredible and productive school year. Our skilled and devoted staff is already planning and preparing for your child(ren). Our enthusiastic office team is registering new families, ordering needed materials and updating student files. Our hard working and conscientious custodians have spent the entire summer thoroughly cleaning the facility. And, our guidance counselors and administrative team is gearing up to welcome families, provide volunteer opportunities, and offer other exciting events and programs. We are indeed a joyful and caring community with the common goals of nurturing responsible, caring students and promoting high-level learning.

I also extend an especially warm welcome to new JTA families. I look forward to meeting and working with you. 

For more information about the start of the year school, district events and important information, be sure to explore JTA’s website and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.   We also use SendIt and Infinite Campus Messenger to send automated messages updating parents about important things happening at JTA and upcoming events.  It is important that you update your contact information in order to receive these updates.  

Thank you to all who are helping prepare for the new school year. Your commitment to ensuring that JTA remains a celebrated and successful school is awe-inspiring. I eagerly look forward to greeting students and families. It is a privilege to serve as your principal. Together, I know we will make this school year one of growth and achievement for all.


Warmest Regards, 

Danielle Cassady
