Principal Message - February 6th

As we continue to usher in the month of February, I would like to take this opportunity to shine some light on last week's Talent Show.  While I did not get to experience the event, I did hear from students, staff and parents on the wonderful event.  We look forward to hosting more events  where we are able to invite our families into the building.

Winter Wonderland

This weekend Saturday, February 11th from 10am-2pm, our school community and surrounding neighbors get a chance to see Jahn transformed into a magical winter wonderland! Similar to North Pole from years past, join us for pictures with Snow Queen Elsa and other special character guests, faux ice castle forts in the gym, mini golf, curling, winter-themed crafts, a bake sale, food vendors, and activities from local businesses.

Volunteers Needed for Winter Wonderland!

Friends of Jahn is so excited to host Winter Wonderland on Saturday, February 11th. WE NEED YOUR HELP to make this event a huge success! Read more to sign up to work a volunteer shift, donate supplies, or both.

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.
-Dr. Derrick Kimbrough, Principal

Empowering Creative Thinkers

Our students are the center and soul of our school. At Jahn, we strive to empower them to be lifelong learners and use the arts as communication, creative personal realization, connectors of culture and history, a means to wellbeing, and community engagement.
