About Bogle

Bogle Junior High School is part of the Chandler Unified School District serving 7th and 8th grade students.

A Letter From the Principal

Dear Bogle Community,


As we approach the third week of school I'd like to thank all of you for being a part of our successful Bulldog Day, attending our annual Open House and taking the time to visit with our staff. We are excited to work with all of you to create a positive Jr. High experience for our students. Coming up we have school pictures August 10th. Please fill out your student's picture packet and return it with them on that day.


Our Student Conferences will be August 18th with an early dismissal time of 11:00 A.M. If you are not notified within the next few weeks for a conference appointment, and you would like to attend, please feel free to reach out and we will be happy to accommodate you. New this year will be student portfolios. All students will be recording a reflection with goals in each class, and choosing artifacts to share with their parents. The portfolios will be sent home the week of August 22nd. This will be an effective way to start up conversations about school with your student. This is also a good time to check grades on Infinite Campus.


This is going to be the best school year yet! We hope you have a restful weekend with friends and family.


Sincerely,


Amanda Cook

1:1 Device Distribution and Insurance

This week we distributed laptops to over 1100 students. Here are some reminders:


*Students must bring their fully charged laptop and charger to school every day.

*Students may not decorate or alter their laptop in any way. (no stickers, marker, tape, etc.)

*Students may purchase a protective case or sleeve for their laptop on their own if they choose.

*Students should learn the barcode number on their laptop to make sure they are always putting the correct device in their backpack at the end of every period. (maybe write it in the agenda)

*Students should never use another student’s laptop.

*Students should close their laptop whenever they have to walk away from it.

*Students should not drop or throw their backpacks. (five damaged screens already-$100 without insurance!)


If a student has technical or password issues, they need to see Ms. Bohling in the media center before school or during lunch. If the laptop needs a longer period of time for repair, a replacement laptop will be issued.


If a student forgets the Chromebook, the teacher may send them to the media center for a temporary device. If they are sent to check out a temporary device more than three times, they will receive a referral for not being prepared for class. Temporary devices need to be returned by the end of the day.


If you are interested in purchasing laptop insurance for $25, it can be paid for through Infinite Campus. Click "more", and then "Intouch Fee Payments" and then "Pay Fines/Fees". If you have other unpaid fees, you can pay them all at once. You will have until August 19th to enroll if you are choosing to take the insurance.

A Message from the Counselors

The week of August 22, 7th grade students will be receiving suicide prevention education in their science classes using an evidence-based curriculum called SOS (Signs of Suicide). Students will be watching an age-appropriate video and participate in a guided discussion about depression, suicide, and what to do if they are concerned about a friend. Following the video, students will complete a response slip indicating whether they would like to talk to a school counselor about urgent concerns in relationship to the video. We encourage parents to visit www.sossignsofsuicide.org/parent for information on warning signs for youth suicide, to access resources, and to learn more about the key message that the 7th grade students will learn in class.

Later in the school year, there will be mental health education that will be occurring with the 8th graders as well.

Grade Level T-shirts

If your child did not pick up their grade level t-shirt during Bulldog Day, they can pick one up in the office. They must show a receipt (printed or screenshot) for the paid grade level fees. If you still need to pay your fees for the year, go through Infinite Campus. Click "more", and then "Intouch Fee Payments" and then "Pay Fines/Fees".
