Homecoming Recap

Our Comets had a great Homecoming week. We were able to celebrate with Dress up Days and a tailgate style lunch on Friday before heading out to watch PowderPuff Football and participate in the Annual Homecoming Assembly. We could not have asked for better weather, it was the perfect ending to a fun filled week!

Starting September 28th, the JH will be offering After School Study Hall. After School Study Hall is designed to provide a quiet place for students to:

  • Work on homework
  • Get organized
  • Receive Extra Help
  • Have reliable wifi to complete assignments

Study Hall is open from 3:10 - 4:10 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays each week. Students must have their own transportation at 4:10

No Referral Party is Coming Soon!!

Our Annual Halloween Dance will be our first No Referral Party of the year. Students can earn the opportunity to attend by not receiving a written discipline referral during the month of October. Following building expectations is the easiest way to earn the opportunity!

This Week in Second Step Lessons

Every week when we conduct a new lesson, we will let families know what is covered so that you can continue to support the initiative from home.

Topics this Week

6th Graders will learn how to break big, long term goals into smaller short term goals

7th Graders will talk about identifying road blocks and developing "if-then" plans

8th Graders will discuss how to make the most out of positive factors and decrease the negative factors

Continuing the Conversation at Home

6th Grade families - You can continue the conversation by talking about goals that you have achieved and the smaller steps that you took to achieve it.

7th Grade families - You can ask your child to discuss their If-Then Plan with you.

8th grade families - You can continue the conversation by discussing something positive or negative that influenced you as you were working toward a goal.
