 Dear JCPS Community


This is the season for reflection.

As we look back on the past year we must remember our blessings.

We are a strong community, dedicated to nurturing and educating the children of Jersey City.

While for so many of us the year has been filled with joy, good health and happiness,

and we have received support and love when in distress or facing adversity.

This is also the season for looking forward.

May we continue to work together, laugh together, even cry together, on behalf of our children – the future.

Peace and Prosperity in 2018.


Marcia V. Lyles, Ed.D.
