Student Council News
It is not too early to submit pictures for the 2019-2020 yearbook. If you have a team picture, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If sending from a cell phone, please select actual size when emailing. This ensures the quality is not compromised when uploading to the yearbook site.
Celebrate Student Success
We want to acknowledge and celebrate the accomplishments of the students of MDJH. We have a wall of celebration where we will place a certificate of acknowledgement highlighting participation and success in a variety of activities. We want to know if your child has participated in any plays, musicals or has been on a team that has won some title or has been recognized in any individual competition. We need your help with this. Please let us know so we can proudly display this on our wall. Please email email@example.com with Celebrate YOUR CHILD’S NAME in the subject line.
WE Create Change
MDJH is a WISH school. In the last year and a half, we have raised $7600 for this program by collecting change from students and by holding various fundraisers. We are close to our goal of $10,000 - the amount needed to grant a wish for a child. If we are successful in reaching our goal, we will grant the wish of a child in our own school community. Students are asked to take change left over from recess and lunch and put it in the wish jars that are in every homeroom. If every student donated $3 we would reach our goal and be able to grant a wish.
