Transition to the Junior High

We will use this section to keep you up to speed as we transition students to the junior high.


Rising 7th Graders (current 6th graders, class of 2025)


Important Transition Dates:

All rising 7th graders should have received, via postal mail, information on the scheduling process. In addition, we will be communicating our course planner through the Greene S'more. The course planner outlines the courses your child will be required to take and also elective options.


The scheduling process will be taking place through a computer based process this year. We are very excited, as it has saved Greene and Junior High staff much manpower! The mailing you received, in addition to the course planner, will allow you to work with your child to determine the courses he/she is required/interested in taking.


Parents and/or Guardians, as you begin the 7th grade scheduling process with your students, you may find it helpful to have access to the 7th Grade Course Planner. The following link will direct you to the Course Planner, which is located on the SJHS website, under the Counseling tab: 7th Grade Course Planner. The SJHS counselors look forward to meeting with your students on March 4th and 5th!


  • Tuesday Feb. 26, 2019: Parent Information Night/Academic Fair. More details to come! 6:00 pm in the media center is for parents whose son/daughter receives special education services. 7:00 pm Presentation/Academic Fair Q&A time immediately following

  • Monday, March 4, and Tuesday, March 5, 2019:
    The JH counselors will sit with each child to enter in the information. After this process is completed, your child will bring home a verification sheet for tentatively scheduled courses. At this point, you can review the verification sheet with your child. Thank you for your cooperation in advance and for your patience with this updated process!


The staff at the junior high is so excited to welcome your son/daughter! We look forward to meeting you along this transition. If questions arise, please do not hesitate to reach out to the junior high for assistance!

PBIS

Giving kids language to use when dealing with tough situations can be extremely helpful as they approach the age where peer pressure becomes more prevalent. Children often know they shouldn’t fall into a trap of “following the crowd” but lack the skills to get out of the situation while still saving face. Here is one such article from the Love and Logic series.

Earth Day 2019 - Gear Up to Bike!

Earth Day this year will be all about walking and biking, including the opportunity to bike to school! Does your student need a bicycle? Consider buying used—it’s not only cost effective, it's green! Shops that offer pre-owned bikes include Montgomery Cyclery (Loveland), Trek Bicycles, and Play It Again Sports (Tri-County and Fields Ertel locations). Online you can find bikes on Craigslist, nextdoor.com, and Facebook. Finally, check with friends and neighbors who have older children, and visit garage sales.

Stay tuned—Earth Day details to come soon!
