Dear Betty Jane Family,

I would like to take a moment to thank all members of the Betty Jane Family for a successful school year.  Parents, teachers, and local businesses pulled together to provide strong support for our children as they returned to school post-Covid this year. It was a big transition for all of us, but we prospered despite navigating through unknown territory this year. Our children showed immense growth academically and socially this year, and it was because of your efforts.

As you plan for the opening of school in the fall please keep a few important things in mind:
* Students will not be wearing uniforms for the 2022-23 school year
* Incoming KG students will be taking their assessments early this year beginning at the start of August, so please advise family and neighbors to get those registrations completed for their little ones on the Registration & Enrollment page of
* There will be academic assessments for students in grades 1-3 prior to the start of the school year on August 29th-31st. Please call the school to schedule an appointment for one of these days.
* Open House will be 3:00-5:00 pm on August 25, 2022
* The first day of school for students in grades 4 & 5 will be on August 29, 2022
* The first day of school for students in grades KG-3 will be on September 1, 2022

There will be multiple summer learning opportunities offered to Akron Public Schools learners. Please visit and click on The Summer Experience icon to choose your child’s summer adventure. 

On that note, I will ask one thing of you: Relax and enjoy your well-deserved break to enjoy some quality time as a family. Summer experiences at local parks and museums provide wonderful learning experiences for our little ones, as do simple times at home reading recipes as you cook together or just take walks in the neighborhood.  Regardless of your plans, please stay safe and well.  I look forward to seeing  all of you on August 25, 2022, for Open House.
