Coloma Junior High

The Week of January 20th

It's Exam Week!

Exam week tends to build anxiety with students as they feel the pressure of taking a "Final Exam". While teachers will provide support through reviews and study guides among other things for our students, it is important to support them at home as well.

At home you can provide them with support by providing a quiet area to review their study guides, quizzing them and reminding them to structure their time wisely. Most important for parents is to hold fast to early bed times to insure they are rested and encourage them to decrease screen time on the evenings prior to exams. Give them a boost of confidence on their way out the door. They've got this!

PM Bus Riders

Just a reminder that students that are bus riders after school, must board the buses at the Junior High/High School Loop. Students are not allowed to walk down to the Elementary/Intermediate to board.

6th Grade Science Classes built edible volcanoes with Mrs. Parker and Mrs. Churchill! Yum!!

Air Pods, Ear Buds and Headphones

It certainly looks like many of our students received some wonderful gifts over winter break. We are seeing lots of AirPods, Earbuds and Headphones in the hallway. Just a reminder that these devices need to be off and put away unless being used for a class. These items should not be worn in the hallways during passing time. They are allowed in the cafeteria during the lunch period.

The cell phone expectation is also that the device should be powered off and locked in their lockers. Locking the phone in the locker serves two purposes, 1) this reduces the urge to check their phone during instructional time and 2) this also keeps the device safe from breakage and theft during the school day.

Valentine's Dance Scheduled

Our Annual Valentine's Dance has been scheduled for Wednesday, February 12th from 5pm - 7pm. Students can earn the opportunity to attend the dance by earning no referrals from Monday, January 13th until the day of the dance.
