Principal’s Message

Dear Friends,

John E. Joy School is a K-6 elementary school that houses approximately 250 students, all of the district’s K-6 English Language Learners as well as many of the district’s special education students.  Our goal is to provide the support the children need so that we can include all of our students in regular education classes.

Our school is named after a well-loved former principal, Mr. John E. Joy.  The school is located near Route 26 (Turin Road) on Bielby Road.  Thus, we proudly call ourselves, the “Turin Road Tigers”!

Our School Community (The students, staff and parents at John E. Joy School) enjoys getting off to a “Roaring Good Start” each year.  Students are encouraged to strive to do their personal best, listen to learn and to be respectful responsible and resourceful.

All of the adults work together to help our children learn and to foster in our children a life-long love of learning.  We strive to have each and every child at Joy School achieve academically and to become independent, life-long learners.  We appreciate all of the help we receive from our friends and family as we work together to achieve this goal.

At Joy School, our Positive School Climate Committee functions like a student council.  The students are given the opportunity to participate in making decisions, planning events and facilitating experiences that will improve the climate of the school.  In addition, we use technology to augment our daily instruction.  Our school has a computer lab as well as a Smart Board and a cluster of computers in every classroom.

Joy School is fortunate to have an active and productive Parent Teacher Group, (P.T.G.) that works together to provide our little “Turin Road Tigers” with many fun and educational experiences and events. 

I welcome any comments or suggestions and encourage all parents to get involved in their child’s education.  If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please feel free to call me at (315) 334-1260.
