Mr. Ron Luciano
Dear Jones families,
Welcome to the start of the 2020 - 2021 school year. We are so excited to have your child with us at David D. Jones Elementary school!
While we begin our year in an online setting, please know that at David D. Jones Elementary we continue with our continuing mission and vision, of developing lifelong, global learners and leaders.
On September 8, 2020, we will roll out our online instruction platform. We have created filming studios for each grade level, using the best technology available to us. Our staff is developing and filming lessons in their classrooms! The resources that will be available to our students and their families beyond live instruction were acquired based on staff recommendations and your feedback. Will this instruction be perfect? Well, not yet. Will this instruction be developed by people dedicated to our profession, our vision and our families? Always!
I want to take a moment to personally thank Guilford County Schools, for the incredible job all of its members have done to use the resources available and develop solutions to the myriad of problems faced during this pandemic. Times like these remind me of a quote my captain used to say in times of change, “The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.” We will keep adjusting the sails, as we navigate these uncharted waters.
If you haven’t already, please consider joining our PTA. This is a wonderful way to stay involved, help support our school and ultimately invest in your child’s growth.
I also encourage you to follow us on social media at Twitter-@JonesElemGSO , Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/46286999572/# and on the Guilford County Schools app, available for free in the App Store and on Google Play. This will allow you to keep up with the latest news, download events to your calendar, make meal payments and check the monthly menu, access our staff directory and view our virtual flyers using Peachjar. You can even access PowerSchool’s parent portal.
We see parents as partners in their children’s education, and we welcome you as an active participant in that process. Please feel free to contact me at 336-370-8230 and firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or suggestions.
Finally, please keep pushing forward. We will get through this time - as we have done before - as a family. I am so honored to be your principal!
