This past Tuesday, a parent meeting was held to introduce the program SOS (Signs of Suicide) that is going to be implemented at JHS. The program was introduced by AJ Eckmann and Victoria Foster and will be implemented with the English classes in all grades. This proactive approach to help identify students in need is supported by all faculty and staff.
There is exciting news in our Career and Technical Eductaion (CTE) programs. With help and guidance provided by Dave Heimann, JHS students can know gain college credits in Drafting, Welding 2, and Welding 3 through Helena College. Dual credit classes allow students to earn college credits while participating in classes at JHS. A major benefit of this partnership is the financial savings since the cost per credit is much less than the normal cost of a regular college students. I look forward to this partnership and the success of students in these classes.
Fritz Bieler has been notified of the countries assigned to JHS for the Model United Nations program. They include France, Ghana, Israel, Nicaragua, and Romania. If anyone has any information or expertise regarding these countries, please contact Mr. Bieler.
