Dear Jones Junior High Bluejays,
WELCOME BACK! As the new principal of Jones Junior High School, I welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year. I am eagerly anticipating a successful and rewarding year, and have been enjoying working with the dedicated staff thus far, while making sure that the school provides an exceptional educational experience for all students.
For those of you who I have yet to have the pleasure of meeting, please allow me to introduce myself. Prior to becoming the Principal of Jones Junior High, I was the Principal at Sierra Vista Junior High for three years, Assistant Principal for two years, and the Resource Teacher for seven. I also taught for eight years at Pleasant View Elementary School, here in the city of Baldwin Park. I have had the privilege of serving students in our community for twenty years!
Our vision at Jones Junior High is to develop resilient and socially responsible students who are ethical, critical thinkers, and take pride in themselves and the work they produce. We are committed to educating the whole child in a positive and safe learning environment. Our highly qualified staff instruct students with a rigorous curriculum and the belief that all students can learn. It is truly an honor to be principal of Jones Junior High School and I am looking forward to working with the students, parents and staff.
Lorena S. Chavira
