Principal's Message


Hello, my name is Randall DeKraker, and I am excited to be starting anew school year at JDSS. This past year has proven to me once again that this school has a fabulous staff.  I am confident that with their help, we can continue to make this school a hub of activity, a community, and a place of learning.

I hope that all students feel welcome here and find that they can fit in and learn in a comfortable environment.  If you see me in the halls, please say hello so I can get to know as many students as possible.

Below is a photo of our 2015-16 JDSS staff, including teachers, custodians, office professionals, and administrators.  They, too, look forward to getting to know you!


Tuesday, September 6 is the firts day of school for students in grades 7 - 9. Students in thoise grades are to arrive at school before 8:55 am. Grade 7 and 8 students are to report to the cafeteria in the basement. Students in grade 9 should go to the gym for a special assembly and activities designed to make them feel welcome in the school and build TROJAN pride.

Have a great year!


Mr. DeKraker
