Change in School Leadership

Dear Jolly Elementary Parents and Guardians, 

I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. It is with mixed emotions that I share an important update regarding my role at Jolly Elementary. After careful consideration, I am writing to inform you that I have accepted a promotion that will take me to a new professional endeavor. 

As of January 1, 2024, I will no longer be serving as the school principal at Jolly Elementary. This decision has not been an easy one, as I have cherished every moment working with our dedicated students, supportive parents, and the exceptional staff that makes our diverse school community truly special. 

I am grateful for the wonderful experiences and relationships developed during my time as principal. I am confident that the school will continue to thrive under new leadership, and I am excited about the positive directions it will undoubtedly take. 

The Jolly Elementary School community holds a special place in my heart, and I want to express my deepest appreciation for your collaboration, trust, and support over the years. 

Mrs. Brenda Roberts, Jolly Elementary’s current assistant principal, has been named as the new principal of Jolly Elementary. Please be assured that the transition plan is in place, and efforts are being made to ensure a seamless shift in leadership. The school board and administration are dedicated to maintaining the high standards of education and care that you have come to expect from Jolly Elementary. 

I look forward to hearing about the continued success and growth of our students and the school as a whole. Thank you once again for being such an integral part of this journey. 

Wishing you and your children all the best in the future. 


Dr. Ayesha O. Grandison 

Former Principal
