Dear Kelly Eagle Families,

Happy New School Year!

We are excited to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year! We hope you had a fun and exciting summer filled with new adventures and relaxation. Our Kelly Eagle staff have been diligently planning new and exciting learning opportunities for our children and are committed to providing excellent high quality instruction for all of our students.

The First Day of School is on Monday, August 29th at 8:50am.

Welcome Back Cookout: In preparation for the new school year, it is strongly encouraged that students and families attend our Welcome Back Cookout on August 24, 2022 from 3-4pm. We are so excited to meet you and your families! This will be an opportunity for you to meet school staff, participate in giveaways, talk with school partners, and eat some good bbq food!

Uniforms: Uniforms are to be worn everyday to school. All students must wear a green or white uniform shirt with khaki pants or jumper/skirt. On gym days, students are to wear their gym shirts. Students will receive a gym shirt on the first day of school. Additional gym shirts can be purchased in the Main Office at a later date.

Our Kelly Eagle staff are already gearing up for an incredible new school year. However, we cannot do this alone without our incredible parent partners. An important part of students’ success is having parents/guardians’ support. The School District of Philadelphia’s Parent & Family Portal gives you access to valuable information about your child’s education and school (grades, attendance, report card, and so much more). If you need additional help with registering for the parent portal, please visit (

The entire JB Kelly School family looks forward to welcoming students back to school on Monday, August 29th at 8:50am. and working with our families and community to support high quality instruction. As always, please feel free to reach out to us with questions or concerns and make sure you follow us on Twitter @JohnBKellyES. Together, we can make this school year our best one yet!
