It is hard to believe that we have taken another trip around the sun. Although always an exciting time of the year, it is also bittersweet to say goodbye to our seniors and those families who have their youngest graduating. We will bid them an adieu on Sunday evening at the Schottenstein Center. Whether you are leaving us, still with us, or joining us for the first time in the fall, Dublin Jerome High School is and always will be home to you.
I looked back at our end of the year newsletter last year and realized I can't replicate what I said any better, so here it is once again: As summer dawns, please find time to rest and be with your loved ones. If you're a sun lover, please find time to take in the heat, but wear your sunscreen. If you're a book lover, take time to find that cozy spot and read to your heart's desire. If you're a tennis player, hit that court as often as possible. And above all, pester your kids to spend as much time with you as possible.
I am so honored to be the principal of this great school and look forward to seeing our kids back here in August.
P.S. Outside of spending time in Maine in July where we might have spotty service, I should be on email pretty consistently. If you have anything that needs answered over the break, please feel free and send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll make sure it gets into the right hands.

What the City of Dublin wants you to know about panhandling
Below is a message from the Dublin Police Department.
You probably have seen panhandlers at various locations in and around Dublin shopping plazas. The City of Dublin wants you to say NO to panhandling. While this might seem like harsh advice, the City along with Dublin Police are very aware that unfortunately, panhandling to fund drug or alcohol dependency is very common. Many residents and organizations have asked if the City of Dublin can enforce laws to ban panhandling. Non-threatening panhandling is a form of free speech protected under the First Amendment. As long as individuals are on public property and not breaking any laws, they have the right to panhandle.
There are community resources, including the Dublin Food Pantry, for those who are truly in need. Thanks to suggestions from residents and leadership from City Council, soon you will see Say NO to Panhandling signs in a few locations to discourage giving money to panhandlers, while encouraging donations to social services organizations.
