Our elementary schools will celebrate the Harvest Fest/Halloween holiday on Friday, October 29. We ask that all elementary students wear masks (surgical or cloth) designed to prevent COVID-19 transmission. Up to two family members are invited to watch the elementary school parades, and these guests must also be fully masked and follow social/physical distancing guidelines. You will receive details soon from your school principal.

There will also be team games, sports skills and brain challenges. We hope you can attend! Bring your extended family and neighbors to watch, cheer, or play.

A very large weather system of rain and wind is approaching Princeton on Thursday and Friday this week. The forecast is calling for heavy rain at our peak times of arrival and dismissal.

This is simply to serve as a reminder of care and caution when dropping off your child or picking them up from JP. We will screen our students as quickly as possible so that they can get in the building safely. My concern is for dismissal. For Thursday and Friday, we are going to release all of our bus riders from class first. We are going to load our bus riders on the buses first and we are going to move the buses along quickly.

Starting October 19, JP will celebrate the Week of Respect and School Violence Awareness Weeks with a daily Upstander challenge. 

An Upstander is someone who stands up and speaks out when someone is being hurt. Upstanders treat others with kindness and care. Upstanders create a warm and welcoming JP community. At JP we believe every student can be an upstander!

Dear Johnson Park Families:

The first day of the new school year is finally upon us! I hope that you share my excitement although I recognize that there is some worry. This year, we open our school year in a very different way. Our staff members and teachers have worked tirelessly to prepare for our opening, and I can assure you that their warmth, enthusiasm and creativity will shine—even through a screen.

Dear Johnson Park Parents and Guardians,
It is with great pride and excitement that I write to you as the newly appointed Acting Principal of Johnson Park Elementary School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school that is nothing but exceptional! I have worked in the Princeton Public School district for more than 20 years, beginning as a Special Education Teacher in 2000. I transitioned into Administration in 2005 as the Supervisor of Student Activities, served for 10 years as the District’s K-12 Supervisor of Guidance, and from 2017-2020, worked as an Assistant Principal at Princeton High School.  I am excited to continue my career in a district that prioritizes teaching and learning, supports all student learners and embraces parent and community relationships.  I am eager to develop partnerships with all JP families in a collective effort to ensure your child's success.
