About Us

Head of School; Wednesday, July 4, 2018

Dear JH Classical Academy Parents,

It has been a beautiful two and a half weeks since the students left our campus. I met with the faculty and staff to reflect on this past year, and to thoughtfully prepare for the year ahead. The board gathered and implemented sound policy governance to protect the mission and vision of our school. Our architects and builders came to town to further prepare for our future facility. We made important progress on many fronts. 

Now, it is time for rest. I’m tired. It has been an intense time of giving. It is time to withdraw. Tonight, we depart from Salt Lake City for Prague.  It is time to have fun and enjoy my family.  In Psalm 23, David said, “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want; he makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul.”
It is so good to know we have a Shepherd who is active and working on our behalf. We cannot shepherd ourselves, nor do we need to. We have a Shepherd!  He is loving, wise, faithful, and going before us to provide so that we“shall not want." Our Shepherd knows our needs and prepares the way for us to restore.
I am so excited to be tuned into the work of the Shepherd to see how he meets the needs of our family this month. I don’t know what will refresh me, but I trust my Shepherd. He is going to “make me lie down” (and that might not be easy!) in a place of “green pastures and still waters!” I know we will come home fully satisfied and restored.
May you hear the Shepherd call your name and by following Him find rest for your souls.  Enjoy Ms. Koci's reflection on wisdom, and the profile of our new science and math teacher, Ms Cohen.   
Happy Summer!
Mrs. Polly J. Friess
