Principal’s Message

Greetings Jahn Families and Community!
It is with great pleasure that I write to you as a committed member of this great institution of learning. As the newly selected principal of Jahn School of Fine Arts, I look forward to working with you throughout the coming school year. I am extremely excited to be a part of the Husky family and look forward to the continuance of great work on Wolcott Street.
I am honored to lead this work alongside you, and I am confident we will accomplish amazing feats during this school year. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions you might have around things happening at Jahn. Here’s to the start of our powerful partnership.
