    Please see the Connect-Ed message that was sent to families on the morning of July 18 regarding the new process for the 2017 Summer Mailing Forms. Please select "Read More" for updates.

    SUBMISSION OF PHYSICAL: You may now upload an electronic copy of a doctor-completed physical form within the Physicians section of the Summer Mailing Forms. If you have already completed your other forms and would now like to upload a physical, please log in to view your summary and select Edit from the drop-down. You may also send it in hard copy to the child's school, or email it to the school's klschools address located in the Contact Information. You do not need to provide it here if it has already been submitted in a 2017-18 Fall Athletics registration.

    STUDENT NAME NOT APPEARING: your student's name will be pre-populated as a participant choice only if he/she has previously participated in HS or MS athletics.

    SECTION SELECTION (the first data-entry field): please select the SECTION that corresponds to the grade level that this PARTICIPANT will be entering in the Fall. If the school and grade level that you need do not appear, then you may have selected the incorrect program for this PARTICIPANT. Please return to the dashboard and enter the full name of the school into the "I want to register for a program at" field.

    FINDING ANOTHER PROGRAM: if you have finished with your John Jay High School 2017 Summer Mailing Forms submission, and would like to next submit your HS athlete's forms for the Athletics Dept, please  return to the dashboard and enter  John Jay Athletics into the "I want to register for a program at:" field.

    UPLOADING A HEALTH APPRAISAL FORM: if you have completed your child’s summer mailing forms, and would like to go back in to upload his/her Health Appraisal Form (required for grades K, 2, 4, 7, 10 and all new entrants), please use the “View or Edit my Registrations” button to update the existing Participant record for your child.

Humanities Research Symposium at John John High School Tuesday May 23

  John Jay High School will host its 10th annual Humanities Research Symposium on Tuesday, May 23, at 6:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. The evening begins with poster presentations by Humanities Research I students in the John Jay High School Library. At 7:30, juniors and seniors in Humanities Research II and III will give brief presentations of independent projects across the hallway in room N-205.

“Humanities as a discipline is concerned with how philosophy, literature, religion, art, music, history or language inform and define our societies, as well as define who we are as human beings,” said Dr. Marguerite Hefferon, who directs the Humanities program with teacher Therese Von Steenburg. “These essential ideas are woven throughout the students’ work.”

This year’s presentations offer interesting insights into what teens are thinking about, with topics ranging from feminism and neurodiversity to the EPA and American security post 9/11. It features:

 

  • Zachary Boles - The Detrimental Effects of the Declining Middle Class
  • Laragh Cronin - Understanding the Roots of Political Orientation and Participation
  • Chase Goldman - Violence and Children’s Mental Health
  • Maggie Greene - American Safety and Security Before and After 9/11
