Jesse White Learning Academy Families:
behalf of all the staff members, I welcome you and your family to Jesse C.
White Learning Academy. The JWLA learning community encourages students to be
safe, caring, respectful, and ready to become positive lifelong learners.
I am grateful and elated to continue this journey with you as your Principal.
Over the past year, I have had a chance to meet many of you and your children,
and look forward to continue building strong relationships with all of you in
the upcoming year. As we enter this new school year, I want to let you know
that our staff will be engaging in conversations around having a growth
mindset, both for themselves and all of our students. We believe that every
person in this building should always be growing and learning. Despite
obstacles that may arise, we must always believe in our ability to rise above
challenges and come out stronger on the other side. Together, we must always
reach for excellence.
