This being the last parent letter of the year, I want to thank you for the support and patience shown these past 10 months. We had successes and some challenges, yet despite all, we continue the work that has to be done to ensure the safety and educational needs of our students meet the highest standards. Warm weather is finally here and the month of May promises to be both a busy and an exciting time with competitive spring sports and the end-of-the-year achievements of our students as well as the celebration of our graduating 8th graders.

As we continue to move forward, I encourage parents to remain vigilant in monitoring their student's grades through the parent grade book portal. The month of May will be a busy testing month. We will be administering our Algebra 1 EOC and 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade STAAR exams. In addition, the end-of-year 7th and 8th-grade final exams are scheduled for the end of May. You can view the final exam schedule on the calendar above.

As always, I encourage you to please continue to refer to the MISD website, our school website, http://schools.misd.org/page/mjhs.homepage, and our social media pages (Twitter and Instagram) for additional information.

Thank you, again for your continued support this year. Best wishes to our graduating eighth graders, whom I will miss greatly—please come back and visit. Until next school year, here’s wishing you love, laughter, and learning.

Summer Blessings!


We know students are getting excited about the summer break and as the end of the year is quickly approaching, we would like to end the year strong! So, we need your help to continue to talk with your student about the importance of making positive choices while here at school. In addition, these are things we are continuing to see students out of dress code daily:

*No Pajama Pants or Slippers-Pajamas and slippers are only allowed on designated spirit days.

*There can be no thigh showing (boy or girl) above mid-thigh. Boys must have shorts longer than their mid-thigh, rips cannot be above mid-thigh, and skirts must be longer than mid-thigh.

*NO Mid-driftNo stomach or waist should be visible with natural movement. Having a button up over but not buttoning it up until told is not ok or unbuttoning it after being told to show waist exposed is not acceptable.

*Leggings: Girls must have a shirt that covers their backside if they are wearing leggings.

*No hats or hoodies on head in the building - hats are allowed on designated spirit days.


Students were made aware at a meeting and on announcements regularly, that in order to attend the celebration, they must not have the following disciplinary infractions from March 12 - May 19. Please help us by reminding your student of this.

3 Minor Infractions (Examples: Lunch Detention, After School Detention, Saturday School)

1 Major Infraction (Examples: In School Suspension, Out of School Suspension, DAEP)

Thank you for your help!


May 13 is the last day for book checkout in the library. Students will only be able to have one book checked out after that date. All books will be due Friday, May 20. Students will need to pay for or replace any lost books. Please contact Ms. Smith with any questions about overdue or lost books.

All OTC/as needed medications will need to be picked up from the clinic by Thursday May 19th. If it is a daily medication, they will need to be picked up by Tuesday May 24th. If not picked up, all medication will be discarded on May 25th.

An email was sent home to all parents with students who still need their Tdap and Meningitis vaccines for 7th grade. A letter will also be sent home with the students who still need them. These vaccines are a REQUIREMENT for 7th grade. Students will not be able to pick up their schedules if they do not have them. Parents can email the immunization record directly to me or send it with their student.

Please feel free to contact Mrs. Buckner if you have any questions or concerns at courtney.buckner@misd.org or 936-276-3309.


May is Mental Health Month!

Mental Health Month raises awareness of trauma and the impact it can have on the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of children, families, and communities. Mental health has to do with how you think, feel, and act. Mental health includes how well you take care of yourself, the quality of your relationships with other people, and how well you handle difficult situations, stress, and problems. Mental health is essential for a person's overall health.

Mental health is something everyone has, and it is important to check-in on our mental health regularly, just like we check-in on our physical health. Prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can recover from mental disorders and live full and productive lives. Mental Health Month gives all of us a valuable opportunity to celebrate the tremendous strides this Nation has made in promoting mental health and increasing the public's knowledge that effective services and support are available.

Check out the websites below for additional information on Mental Health:







Also, check out information on summer school, advanced 7th grade math track opportunities, and STAAR testing coming up below.


Complete 2022 Summer School and all 2022 Summer Program information can be found on our MISD district website: Parent Tab, under the Resources list: Summer Programs 2022.

Summer Athletics: Strength & Conditioning, Physicals, Proposed Football Camp


Register for the Montgomery High School Summer Developmental Course (6th-9th). Camp dates and times are included in the link.

If you have any questions or need help with registration, please contact the Montgomery High School Performance Course Director, Dylan Stubbe (dstubbe@performancecourse.com) and he will be happy to help. We hope that your child has the opportunity to participate!


If your child is planning on playing a sport for the 2022-23 school year, he will need a valid physical for next year.

These physicals can be done one of two ways. The first option would be to get one done by your own doctor. If you chose to do this, you will need to print the physical form from this email or your child can ask for a physical form from me. Once the physical is completed, please have your child bring it to school to give to me.

The other option would be to get a physical done by local physicians from Memorial Hermann. These doctors will be hosting a "physical day" on May 4th at Montgomery High School from 1:30-5:00, the cost is $25. If you chose to have the physical done on this day, they will turn in their physicals to me at the end of that process, and you won't have to worry about remembering to get one done.

The physical forms link is below if you chose to get one done by your own doctor and a physical flyer is below as well with instructions on how to prepay for physicals on the 4th. MJH coaches will provide a bus shuttle service to the high school on the physicals day. Your child can ride the bus over to the high school but will need to be picked up at the high school after the physical is completed anywhere from 3:00 to 5:00 pm. Please have them text you when they are finished. They can use my phone to call you if they need to. They will be picked up in the​ auxiliary football stadium parking lot at the high school.

In addition to getting a physical completed, each athlete's parent must also complete the 2022-2023 online Rank One forms. These forms must be completed every year. To fill out the forms, click this link. Online Forms (rankonesport.com)

Once the link opens, click proceed to online forms. DO NOT CREATE AN ACCOUNT. CLICK CONTINUE AS GUEST. From there, 3 forms will pop up, the emergency card, parent signature page, and UIL page. All 3 forms must be completed, and something must be written in every box. If a question does not apply, type N/A as a response.

Both a physical and rank one forms can be completed at any time now, and must be completed before an athlete can tryout or participate in a UIL sport next year.

Football Camp

Proposed junior high football camp dates at the high school are August 1 through August 3. More details to come as they are finalized.

All other information is on the boy's and girl's athletics tab of the MJH website.

Enrollment is currently OPEN 8th Grade DC Trip, June 2023!

Have you heard that as 8th graders, your student can enroll to travel on an all-inclusive trip to DC/Williamsburg in June 2023?! The trip is customized to include places that your student learns about during their 8th grade year in U.S. History. The earlier you decide to enroll, the lower your monthly payments will be. Use the following link to see tentative dates, a sample itinerary, explore payment plans, decide on optional insurance, etc.




A friendly reminder, we do not have an open lunch policy so please do not order food for your child from outside vendors to be delivered to the school during the school day (i.e. Uber Eats, Grub Hub, Door Dash, or any kind of delivery service). This is a safety concern that disrupts the educational process within our community and random people delivering food is not part of our safety plan. In addition, please do not not bring or share lunches with other students due to safety, medical concerns, allergies, etc. We do have a parent lunch table now for parents to eat lunch with their student and a friend.

Just a reminder: If your child forgets their lunch, we have a parent drop off table in the front foyer for you to drop off lunches. Please let your child know you have brought their lunch to school.

As a reminder, all breakfast and lunch this year is free of charge. Any extras, such as water, chips, treats, etc. will need to be purchased.


  • No Pajama Pants, slippers, or Blankets-Pajamas and slippers are only allowed on designated spirit days.
  • Shorts: There can be no thigh showing (boy or girl) above mid-thigh. Boys must have shorts longer than their mid-thigh, rips cannot be above mid-thigh, and skirts must be longer than mid-thigh.
  • NO Mid-drift showing – No stomach or waist should be visible with natural movement. Having a button up over but not buttoning it up until told is not ok or unbuttoning it after being told to show waist exposed is not acceptable.
  • Leggings: Girls must have a shirt that covers their backside if they are wearing leggings.
  • No hats or hoodies on head in the building (just leave the hat at home).


Regular school attendance is one of the most important indicators of school success. Students who attend school regularly not only improve their chances of being academically successful, but it builds strong relationships with their peers and teachers.

We know there are a wide variety of reasons that a student must be absent. Communication is Key! Always send in a note, either parent or doctor. Making school aware at the start of the absences is helpful. Attendance office can be notified via email, fax, submitting online, or calling. You may also send a note with your student when they return. Absence notes will be accepted within 3 days of the Six Week grading period. If your student will be absent multiple days, please communicate with your child's teachers via email.

Please visit our school website to stay up to date on the most current Covid-10 protocols.


Our teachers provide challenging, hands-on learning experiences that engage our students' minds and hearts! We miss your student when they are not here, and your student misses outstanding learning opportunities and valuable teacher/peer interactions when they are not present in class.

MJH Parent/Student Handbook

The Parent-Student Handbook will be available on the MJH website. We encourage you to become familiar with the information contained in the handbook. Forms such as Release of Picture/Directory Information, Medication for the Nurse, Change of Address/Phone Number, and Technology Agreement are found at the back of the Handbook.


We ask that you make every effort to request transportation changes prior to 1:30 p.m. in order for us to be certain that your student leaves in the correct manner. You may make changes by:

1. Sending a note with your child;

2. Faxing with a photo of your I.D. to 936-276-3301. Please include your student’s first & last name on any change. Emails or texts to teachers, phone calls to the front desk, and student-relayed messages are not requests that we honor for safety reasons.


Due to the continued growth of MISD, we will no longer allow extra riders to ride the bus routes. Only registered riders will be allowed on the bus routes. We highly encourage students to car-pool to school due to the high volume of traffic and limited parking during the morning hours.

Meal Viewer and Cafeteria Charges

The Child Nutrition Department has moved to a new website to display menus for students and parents. The website it MealViewer, here is the link - https://schools.mealviewer.com/district/Montgomery%20ISD,%20TX

Parents can set accounts for students to alert them when their favorite meals are being served in the cafeteria, what foods contain their students’ allergens, and so much more!!

MISD has an easy online way for you to keep your child’s account. Go to the MISD webpage and click on the left tab “Child Nutrition Info”. Then click “MySchoolBucks.com.”

Parents will be encouraged to make prepayments on students’ accounts using my school bucks, cash or checks to avoid cash transactions during meal service.
