Dear PBJHS Families

School is off to a fast and furious start at PBJHS. It's hard to believe that we already starting week 4. We want to keep you informed of what happens daily at PBJHS. If you would like, please take a moment to follow us on Facebook or Twitter at the addresses on the bottom of this newsletter. I will update these accounts frequently throughout the school year not only with events, but daily happenings in our school to help our families see what goes on in our building throughout the day. The PB Schools website and app are other great ways to stay connected. Partnering together, we can ensure the success of our kids. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have at anytime.


Thank you again for all you do!

PBJHS to Help Houston Hurricane Victims

We will be having a "Stuff the Bus" event next Saturday at Walmart from 9-12. PBJHS students would like to collect cleaning supplies and send to a Houston area school that has had students and teachers affected by the damage. The academic lab that brings in the most supplies, will win a reward party (BWW, Ice Cream or Pizza) depending on how much they bring in!

Outdoor Eating at PBJHS

This last week our PBJHS students enjoyed eating outside at our new "Courtyard" area. Buffalo Wild Wings donated tables and chairs for us and Pepsi donated umbrellas. Each day that is weather appropriate, 32 students get to eat outside. It is a reward for good behavior in the cafeteria. Students are loving it!

Meet Our Staff

We are fortunate to teach and lead at Poplar Bluff Junior High. We have an excellent staff and we hope you enjoy getting to know them through our fun back to school video.
