Jenks High School
We are also celebrating the selection of Shala Marshall as a Finalist for State Teacher of the Year. She has done a superb job of representing both JHS and Jenks Public Schools, and we are grateful for her leadership and how she seeks to serve students, parents, and colleagues everyday. The Oklahoma State Teacher of the Year will be announced on September 19.
We are celebrating the arrival of eight students and two teachers from Chengdu, China. They are from our sister school at Chengdu #7 in the Sichuan province. The Chengdu students and teachers are staying with American hosts from our school, and the students will be with us for three weeks. In March 2018, Jenks students and teachers will spend three weeks in China learning about their culture and education system. It truly is an amazing partnership and experience for everyone involved.
We have so many great things that happen throughout the year at JHS. You can follow us on Facebook or Twitter @jenkshs to stay up to date. Also, please sign up as an Observer on Canvas if you have not already (this is the best way to stay up on your student's learning). More information on Canvas can be found directly below, along with some important dates and information.

College & Career Central
College and career readiness is extremely important to the faculty and staff at JHS. We want to make sure that your student is given timely information and mentored so that he/she can prepare for "the 13th grade." Whatever your student's ambitions or dreams, we want to help.
During Advisory this past week, your student was given one of the following presentations. Much of this information pertains to important dates and information surrounding college and career readiness.
Please click on the appropriate link and see the information that was presented to your student. Taking some time to discuss it with your student can go a long way in helping you, JHS, and your student work together to prepare for your student's future after high school.
