JCHS-January 2020
 
This new year, we would like to thank our Board members for their volunteerism and work to make our school district the best for all of our kids.  We appreciate each of you. 
 
Winter sports and clubs are well into league season with swimming, wrestling, basketball, cheer, chess, and Robotics competing.   Speaking of Robotics, both of our teams qualified for the upcoming State Championship tournament finishing 3rd and 4th in District.  One of our teams won the distinguished computer programming award.  Stacey Johnson was selected by coaches throughout the state as the Oregon Robotics Volunteer of the Year.  We are proud of Stacey for all she has developed over the course of this past decade.  This is a well deserved honor. 
 
Our scheduling committee continues to work with our staff on the development of a bell schedule next school year that will allow for intervention support for struggling students.  We have decided to maintain the trimester, five period framework, while looking for creative options for adding intervention time during the day. 
 
Parent Teacher Conferences for winter term were held last week, and midterms have been picked up or mailed home.  We are encouraging parents and students to use the Home Access system to monitor grades.  If individuals do not know their login information, they can contact the office for support. 
 
We want to continue to encourage students and parents to be using the SafeOregon tipline to report school related issues that need administrative or law enforcement attention.  This is such an important tool for reporting anything of concern.  We want to continue to emphasize to kids, “If you hear or see something that isn’t right, say something.”  Together as a community, we can work together to keep our students and staff as safe as possible. 
 
We have added an Attendance Monitor position to strengthen our communication with parents and our follow through with students either out of class or not attending.  One change that will be taking place very soon is a “Safety Check” personalized phone call for any student not in class each morning.  Parents will receive a morning call from our Attendance Monitor to make sure an absent student is safe and accounted for.  We will do this to make sure the student is okay, and also to strengthen our personal communication with our parents.  Daily attendance is so important.  Every Day Matters!
 
As we look ahead to National Counselors’ Appreciation week in early February, we want to thank the best counseling team out there.  Particularly at the high school, we’d like to thank Angie Elstone, Brian Miller, Courtney Madsen, and Dr. Sue Menen for all of their important work supporting kids.  They are a truly amazing team. 
 
Finally, the Tiger Auction will be taking place on the evening of February 1st.  It’s not too late to purchase tickets.  If you have questions, feel free to check out our website or call the main office.    
 
Here’s to a wonderful 2020.  Go Tigers!
