Welcome Jamaica Families to the 2022-2023 school year! This is going be an amazing year.

 

I am truly honored and excited to begin this school year as Jamaica’s next Principal.

I started my career in education with LHUSD 18 years ago at Starline Elementary School. After 13 wonderful years of teaching elementary students, I moved over to Thunderbolt Middle school and taught 7th and 8th grade math. For the last two years I have served Thunderbolt in the role of Assistant Principal and Athletic Director. Throughout my years in education, I have also run travel clubs, been a facilitator for math competitions, and mentored many new teachers. 

Lake Havasu City has been my home for the past 33 years, and I can truly say that I love  this community.  I have raised my three children here and had the opportunity to foster over 40 children from the area.  My youngest son just graduated from LHHS, so I am on my way to becoming an empty nester soon.

I am looking forward to working collaboratively with the incredible staff at Jamaica as well as connecting with our students and families.  I believe that the success of every student is a result of the partnership and teamwork between home and school. I am committed to continuing the tradition of excellence at Jamaica as well as exploring new ways to meet the ever-changing needs of our students and their families.

We will have many ways for you to be a part of our Croc family this year.  Please consider joining our PTSO, Site Council, and/or joining in on all our fun activities throughout the year. 

Have a great rest of the summer and I look forward to meeting you in August and working with you throughout the year.

Feel free to reach out with any questions at (928) 854-7280 or email me at jblack@lhusd.org

Crocks Rock!

 

Sincerely,

Jennifer Black
