Teacher of the month

It has been a great privilege working at Jahn World Language School this year. It has been a pleasure working with our talented and motivated students, as well as our excellent, creative, and supportive staff and administration. While our music program is still developing, I am very proud of what our students have achieved so far. With the help of their teachers, they put on a fantastic Holiday Season Assembly and a terrific Black History assembly. I am amazed at the great progress that our band and choir students have made singing, and learning guitar, bass, keyboard, and drums.

Students of the Month

Every month teachers select a student who has exhibited good behavior, good work habits, and good citizenship to be the positive action students of the month. We celebrate with an ice cream party and students’ pictures are placed on our positive action bulletin board for all to see.
