    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.

John Jay High School Names 2017 Valedictorian and Salutatorian

John Jay High School has named Sophie Lee as Valedictorian and Gregory Kaplan as Salutatorian for their 2017 graduating class.

“Congratulations to these two exceptional young people. They have woven the arts and service, as well as scholarship, into their lives in an impressive way,” said John Jay High School Principal Steven Siciliano.

Lee is a National Merit Scholarship Semi-Finalist and recipient of the University of Pennsylvania Book Award in her junior year. In addition, she is an accomplished musician, having performed at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall as one of the winners of the 2016 New York Piano Festival. Lee also sings and plays violin with the children's choir at St. Mary of the Assumption Roman Catholic Church in Katonah. Last year, she was a volunteer piano teacher at Songcatchers, Inc., a New Rochelle organization that offers music instruction to disadvantaged youth. 

Kaplan is a National Merit Scholarship Semi-Finalist and member of the National Honor Society who also received the Yale University Book Award as well as the Latin Award in his junior year. He has received scholar-athlete awards for both cross country and track and field in each season of his high school career, and he plays alto saxophone in the John Jay High School Jazz Band.  Kaplan has been a tutor with Reach Out John Jay and volunteered at the Dorothy Day Hospitality House in Danbury, Connecticut, this past summer, serving people who were in need of a hot meal.

For both students, learning is part of the creative process.

“Ever since I was little, I've loved writing stories, playing my instruments, and drawing, as well as being absorbed into the worlds of amazing writers and artists. Having the space and the time to explore these passions in school, especially with the guidance of a teacher to help me improve, is something really valuable,” said Lee.

Kaplan added, “We learn to think so that we may learn even more, and we should celebrate our knowledge and inspiration in artistic, creative ways.”
