April 3rd - April 9th


At East Central Junior High we are committed to preparing students academically and socially to be self-sufficient, contributing members of the community with plans for a successful future.

Good evening,

I hope everyone had a great weekend! As we gear up for another week of school, it is hard to believe that there are only six week left in the year and only two weeks until we begin OCCT testing. A couple of things to note this week:

  1. Home opener soccer game is Wednesday (Jeans passes for any one who attends)
  2. We have two drills this week (See WAG below).
  3. Monday we will meet in PODs to plan the roll out of the Parents, Student, Teacher OCCT guides.

I have recently learned about the practice of restorative justice which is a different approach to discipline within schools. I did some research to find out exactly what this practice is and have attached an article on this practice here. I found the article very informative and maybe the answer (or at least a start) to changing the behaviors of some of our more challenging students. I would love to hear your thoughts on this practice and how it could benefit the students at our school.

I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow and I look forward to another successful week at ECJH!
