Welcome to the Pierre Laclede Jr. Career Academy!
Dear Pierre Laclede Family,
I want to officially welcome all of you to the 2017-2018 School Year! Summer has come and gone and we must now move forward with an exciting transition. I am extremely pleased to introduce and welcome all of you to Pierre Laclede Jr. Career Academy.
This electrifying journey allows for the continuation of a rich history; but moving in a new direction. As a Junior Career Academy, we will strive to ensure every student experiences intentional high levels of academic achievement in a positive, nurturing, and safe learning environment where diversity is valued, respected, and celebrated.
Pierre Laclede Junior Career Academy is committed to integrating social-emotional learning with purposeful, rigorous academics by changing the narrative to achieve a culture of college and career readiness. There are many new programs that will be introduced this year that will allow our scholars to explore their skill-set and promote critical problem solving.
I am privileged to have the opportunity to return this school year as your Principal Leader and I feel honored to work with our highly qualified and dedicated staff, our wonderful scholars, and all of the supportive parents and community stakeholders. The elementary years are critical times of development for students and families and I look forward in working with all of you to make this academic year successful. As a lifelong learner, I am committed to both supporting our students and families and fostering a love for learning.
Again, welcome to Pierre Laclede Jr. Career Academy – “Where we are Intentional about Changing the Narrative.”
Yours in Education,
