Week at A Glance

FJH Family,

This week is Red Ribbon week! - You may not wear jeans, only the other dress up themes.

The 1st quarter report cards should be coming in the mail, along with attendance letters for missing days. Friday is a WIN day and a perfect chance to make up that time, if you want to come in and get a day made up, you MUST email Dr. Lowery ahead of time.

Thanks to all the parents who came to the board meeting! It is great to see you there!

Parents, we had some low grades.... Many of the kids had missing assignments. With so much time during advisory and on WIN days, we would not expect so many missing assignments. We need your help in keeping your child accountable. School is back and we need your help getting your child back in the groove. Please check Skyward at least once a week to make sure your child is where they should be academically.

Picture day is Tuesday November 2nd. You can dress up nice for this date if you'd like. Jeans are not allowed, as the pants won't show in the picture. You can wear a dress or a nicer shirt, but if you are not in dress code, it must be dressed up for the picture. We will allow regular t-shirts to count in this case.

October 29th is the school dance! $5 unless your parents joined PTO. There will be dancing, video games, and snacks. You're welcome to bring your console, games and remote, but you are responsible for it. There will be a costume contest with prizes as well!

After the dance, we will walk students who don't get picked up to the High school. It is $5 to get into the haunted house. $1 to go back through it! Should be a fun night!

Please email me any time if you have questions or concerns.

Please follow us on social media to stay connect with us at FJH!
