Message from Mr. Pedersen
Dear JFK families:
What great kids we have at JFK. So many of our students are involved in extra-curricular activities such as athletics, music, drama, and or clubs and organizations. Research has shown that when students are involved in school activities, they attend school more regularly, they learn at high levels, and have positive connections with both their peers and adults in the building. Something we are focusing on this year is to identify students who aren't involved in extra-curricular activities and ask them what we can do to get them involved.
Next week our 11th grade students will be participating in the Student Health Survey, a survey sponsored by the Oregon Health Authority and the Oregon Department of Education. This survey will gather information about health risk behaviors of 6th, 8th and 11th grade students throughout the state. The survey includes questions about Student Health and Safety, Student Mental and Behavioral Health, and School Climate and Culture. A ParentSquare notification will be coming out later this week that provides you with a bit more information.
Thank you for all of your support and have a great month!
Winter sports of boys and girls basketball, cheer, swimming and wrestling have been in full swing for a couple of weeks now. If you have a free evening, please consider coming out to support our students-athletes who participate in these sports. They would love to see and hear you.
It's always a great day to be a Trojan. Go Trojans!!.
