Mr. Mauck's Musings

Happy Earth Day to everyone. The weekend will be warm and wonderful so enjoy all nature has to offer. This week was unbelievable. We had a Pep Session for spring activities today and it was a huge success. Thank you to Mrs. Ferguson and the StuCo spirit committee for organizing and running all the activities. If you have never seen table surfing you are missing out. Congratulations to our student of the week Ms. Liliana Serrano and our staff member Mrs. Jami Hutton. Jami was also recognized for the two blood drives she hosted, as JHS was selected Blood Drive Champion. Madeleine Buchanan and Anna Uebelhor were both finalists in the Federal Junior Duck Stamp competition. Madeleine placed 3rd and Anna placed in the top 10 with honorable mention. There were over 200 contestants. I have included their drawings below. Great job by these two budding artists. Ava Harmon will be published in the Vincennes University Jasper Literary Journal, for a poem she authored. Great job, Ava. The Riley Dance Marathon was last Saturday and their efforts earned Riley Hospital $31,135.07. A big thank you to the elementary schools for helping boost this total. Good luck to the Concert Band this weekend with their competitions. They held a concert on Thursday. The Symphonic Band will compete on the 30th. All of our athletic teams are doing well and the Jasper Girl's Tennis team beat the reigning Kentucky state champion 3-2 on Wednesday. They will be competing in an invitational this weekend with most of the top ten tennis teams in the state. Softball will host Linton and the Baseball team will have a 4 team invite on Saturday. The Boy's Golf team will play in the Bud Bennett Invite. Jasper CTE is almost done with the Tiny Home Project and will host an open house and auction on May 17th. Next week is high school yearbook week and a great time to get your senior salute in the next edition. There is information below. With the end of the school year nearing I would like to remind everyone that attendance is critical to academic success. If you must miss school for a scheduled event a pre-arranged absence form should be completed. This form must be completed in advance for the absence to be excused. If the pre-arranged absence form is not complete the absence will be unexcused and work will not be permitted to be made up. Have a fantastic weekend and soak up that vitamin D.

JHS Student and Staff of the Week

This week's Student of the Week is Liliana Serrano.

This week's Staff Member of the Week is Mrs. Jami Hutton.

Thank you for making JHS a better place.

Blood Drive

A BIG THANK YOU to Nurse Jami Hutton! I wanted to share with you the number of donations collected from your school and utilized by patients in the hospitals we serve. Because 30% of the blood we traditionally collect comes from High Schools and Colleges, please take pride in the part you played. Below (and attached) is a graphic you should proudly share with your students, staff, and families. We know that volunteer acts build self-esteem, and recruiting donors to donate blood is a life-saving volunteer act that crosses all socio-economic barriers. We are very grateful for your partnership.

Awards Day

Seniors, if you would like to be recognized for a scholarship that is from a club or organization on awards day on May 19th, you must bring a copy of the award to Mrs. Schum by May 9th. After this date, no other scholarships will be in the program. Remember that some of those organizations may be coming in to present the scholarship to you on May 19th. We will recognize seniors getting scholarships from a university or college only if a representative is coming to present.

JHS Clubs

The Jasper High School Dance Marathon would like to thank the Greater Jasper community for its efforts in helping reach our goal of raising $30,000 for Riley Hospital for Children. With your help, students were able to raise $31,135.07 For The Kids. JHS students began their fundraising efforts for the 2022 marathon in July and hosted their marathon on April 9th. None of it would have been possible without the help of our amazing community. Your support means the world to us!

Anderson Woods Summer Camp

Anderson Woods Summer Camp

Anderson Woods is a overnight summer camp for kids and adults with special needs. During the campers 4 day/3 night stay, they work alongside the camp staff to participate in both recreational and educational activities based in nature. We work together as a team to strive to allow each individual to reach their max potential in all we do. Please view the attached PDFs for the details on the staff/volunteer positions and the 2022 applications. We are still needing to fill numerous positions. Camp is not possible without young leaders willing to serve our wonderful campers. Working at Anderson Woods is a unique experience that provides lasting friendships, much needed job skills, and can be a wonderful resume builder. I hope that you will consider being part of our team for the 2022 summer camp season! Please do not hesitate to reach out with additional questions. Feel free to email or call.

We hope to hear from you soon!

Thank You,

Megan Gatwood
