The Jamaica Elementary staff thanked parent and community support throughout the 2021—21 school year.
“This year has been a challenging year for our entire community, and certainly for our schools. However, the caring and support you have shown toward our staff, and the amazing generosity that has been shared has truly lifted up and provided such an example of what our community is capable of when we come together.
“Through donations of your time, food, monetary gifts, services, and so many other ways, you have supported and encouraged us in ways you will never know. We are grateful to each and everyone who has come together during this year to support our schools.
“So, from the bottom of our hearts, we appreciate all you do!”
