Dublin Jerome High School

Jan. 31, 2020

Good Afternoon!

We have made it to the end of January! We had a busy week but continue to navigate the 3rd quarter. Next week is the 5th week of the quarter and it would be a great time to check in with your child. Please, if you have any questions or concerns, reach out to the teacher so they can help.


We also have P/T Conferences this Tuesday from 3:00-6:30 if you would like to meet with a teacher. Please contact them for a conference.


Thank you for all your help and support.


Have a great weekend!
