Welcome Message from our Parent Coordinator

Happy Holidays!

My name is Jamilex Peña, and I am the new Parent Coordinator at Bronx Design & Construction Academy. As a Bronx native, I am excited to join this thriving school community. I am here to support parents and families in strengthening their relationship with the school, and provide resources where needed. 

Over the years, I have developed a strong commitment to enhancing parent engagement in the schools I’ve worked at in the past. As a parent myself, I understand the desire to want to afford the best opportunities for children. I am here to help, and in the new year, I look forward to meeting you. 

Below, you will find my contact information. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. When we return from Winter Recess, I will share an updated Parent Association meeting schedule. Until then, have an amazing holiday season.

Dear Parents,

Thank you for being a part of our school community. I am committed to creating a space for not only your children, but for you as well. I hope you seek Bronx Design to provide and connect you to resources, and any help or assistance that you may need in the future. Together, we will ensure your son/daughter takes part in the best high school learning experiences New York City has to offer. If you have any suggestions on what we can do to improve how we show up for our families, please do not hesitate to share feedback via email, in-person and remote meetings and/or surveys. Again, that you for being a member of our school community.
