LAJH Guidance News
Welcome back from Spring Break! We are in the last quarter of the school year, and it is important for every student to keep up their momentum with finishing out the school year academically strong. In order to pass any class for the school year, students must accumulate 240 percentage points or a 60% average from all four quarters. If your child is taking a Civics, Algebra I, or Geometry class, 280 percentage points or a 70% average is recommended, due to the End of Course exam. Please encourage your child to study for the Florida Standards Assessments and especially EOCs, considering EOC exams are worth 30% of their final grade.
LAJ teachers are also providing tutoring for students who may need additional preparation for EOCs and FSAs. Parents are responsible for providing transportation for tutoring sessions held after school or on Saturdays at LAJH.

Monique Burr Foundation
Some schools in Clay County utilize the prevention education programs created through the Monique Burr Foundation. MBF is a valuable community resource located in Jacksonville and advocates the safety of children through programs such as Child Safety Matters and Teen Saftey Matters. Both programs promote the 5 Safety Rules and parents or other adults can reinforce the rules with children by practicing the motions and asking children to explain each Safety Rule. Additionally, parents and adults can use the 5 Safety Rules themselves to better protect children, and download the “Child Safety Matters” app at no cost for more information.

MFLC Program @ LAJH
Military and Family Life Counseling prorams provide a wide range of support to military children and youth, family members, and staff who work with children of military parents. All MFLC services and programs take place at school and are designed to occur during times that do not interfere with core academic classes. All services are available at no cost to military families, and are confidential with the exception of child abuse/neglect, domestic violence and other duty-to-warn situations. A child must be signed up for the program in order to participate in small group and one-on-one activities.
If you would like for your child to participate in the Military and Family Life Counseling program at LAJH, please contact Courtney Haddock at firstname.lastname@example.org.
