A MESSAGE FROM THE ADMINISTRATION
What a great time of the year! It's exciting to see the joy in the faces of middle school students during the holiday season. Our upcoming band and choir concerts offer the opportunity to slow down and enjoy a little holiday cheer. Both the choir concert on December 15th and the band concert on December 13th will be held at the MHS Auditorium at 7:00 p.m. Students and staff have been working diligently to showcase these special talents. Please come; everyone is welcome!
We are also proud of how much our community gives during this time of the year. We have many programs that reflect the caring community culture that is growing through our population. Our Angel Tree program assist families that need assistance during the holidays. Our NJHS will host a toy drive for Toys for Tots and our Student Council has their annual Grinch Fundraiser that raises funds to assist with our Angel Tree families. Student Council will also be collecting donations with MISD and Leave it to the Pooch to assist the Fort Myers community as they recover from Hurricane Ian.
I'm always humbled by the support of our Bear Family and MISD Community during this time of the season, and we appreciate your support in all the endeavors we take on. On behalf of the MJH Staff, have a joyous holiday season and a prosperous New Year.
A MESSAGE FROM THE COUNSELORS
Merry Christmas to all of our students, families and staff from the MJH counseling office. We hope your holidays are filled with joy, peace and love. As always, if we can assist you in any way, please reach out to us.

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.
Parent Drop Off Table: 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.
New Campus 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.
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:
- Sending a note with your child;
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.
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, or submitting online. 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-19 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.
