A NOTE FROM OUR ASSISTANT PRINCIPALS
8th Grade Parents,
On March 12, all 8th grade students attended a meeting by the assistant principals regarding the upcoming 8th Grade Celebration that will be held on May 20. This is a fun celebration to show our Bears just how proud we are of all of their accomplishments as a junior high student as well as celebrate their move to high school.
The meeting also explained our expectation for behavior moving forward. Students were made aware and encouraged that in order to attend the celebration, they must not have the following disciplinary infractions from March 12-May 19:
3 Minor Infractions (Examples: Lunch Detention, After School Detention, Saturday School)
1 Major Infraction (Examples: In School Suspension, Out of School Suspension, DAEP)
We look forward to finishing the school year strong and we are always excited to celebrate our 8th grade students each year before they leave us. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mr. Scott See or Mrs. Melissa Gilsdorf.
A NOTE FROM OUR NURSE
1. Tdap (within 5 years of 7th grade enrollment date) (Dtap, dtp, tdap or DT, Td is acceptable if a medical contraindication to pertussis exists)
2. Meningococcal (on or after the student’s 11th birthday) (MCV4)
If your child has already received the required immunizations, please submit a valid copy of the immunization record to the MJH nurse so we can update your record. It is not necessary to wait until the summer months to obtain these immunizations and have your child’s records updated and ready for 7th grade. All immunizations must be in compliance in order to pick up your child’s 7th grade schedule during schedule pickup in August. Please feel free to contact Mrs. Buckner if you have any questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org or 936-276-3309.

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.

IMPORTANT LUNCH REMINDER:
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.
DRESS CODE REMINDERS
- No Pajama Pants or Blankets-Pajamas 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.
MJH CAR RIDER LINE/BUS POLICY
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.
