How is your mental health?

Mental Health Awareness Month, also known as Mental Health Month, has been observed in May in the United States since 1949. The purpose of the campaign is to bring awareness to an issue that affects people of all ages and to combat the negative stigma attached to someone having a mental illness. The following links provide useful information of how to address the topic of mental health with your children. We encourage all LAJH staff and students to show their support of Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day, by wearing lime green on Thursday-May 9, 2019.

State Testing in May

Our eighth-grade students will continue taking the FSA ELA beginning May 1-2, 2019, and the seventh grade will continue the following week on May 7-8, 2019. Prompt attendance is important on all testing days, or your child may not receive a score for a particular subject for the current school year. FSA scores are used to help with the placement of students into standard, advanced, and remedial core classes for the next or upcoming school year. Teachers will begin testing procedures after morning announcements, approximately around 9:40 am. Take a look at the FSA schedule for all testing days in May.


May 1-2: FSA ELA Grade 8

May 14-15: 8th Grade Math
