Providence Hall Junior High
As Boyz II Men Would Say...We've Come To The End Of The Road
Happy Sunday Patriots...
While I know that the vast majority of us are counting down the days until we can ignore our pesky alarm clocks, ditch close-toed shoes in exchange for the freedom of flip-flops, and add popsicles as a major food group into our daily diet...I am not gonna lie when I tell you my little heart hurts a bit when the chaos and noise of the school year is replaced with quiet and focused planning.
To say it has been an honor to get to be the Principal of this school and serve this community over the last two years is not something I can adequately express with words. Even when the world and the humans running it are not at our best, there isn't a day that goes by where love, laughter, and joy can not be found by simply stepping out into the halls and classrooms of this school.
Patriots...over the last two years, we have been through A LOT and I have no doubt that with each and every year, we will be met with new challenges, adventures, laughter, heartbreaks, and accomplishments. As we go into our next phase of life, I encourage all of us to assume the best intentions of everyone we come in contact with, and in all interactions lead with kindness as our first reaction.
For those of you that are moving on to high school, or making a move to a different school, I want to remind you that you are LOVED and assure you that no matter where you go, you will always have a family and a home here at Providence Hall.
Until Next Year Patriots...
- Listen to and help the adults in your life.
- Liberally apply sunscreen.
- Consider trading gaming and talking online for sunshine and in-person conversations.
- Eat all of the popsicles. (Except the blue ones...Those are gross.)
- Stop at and purchase from all of the lemonade and snowcone stands.
- Mow an elderly person's lawn without expecting payment in return
- If given the opportunity, go fishing, camping, and eat Smore's like they are going out of style.
- Read! Read outside, read in a hammock, read in a tent. Just read.
- Try a new board or card game.
- Be kind to your siblings, and if asked build a fort with them, do it just to see them smile.
- Go out and find joy!
As always Patriots...
You are LOVED

2021-2022 Chalk The Walk A HUGE Success
At the end of the day, we had nearly 50 works of student-created art, sunkissed cheeks, and over 150 students that were all smiles and completely covered from head to toe in chalk.
We selected the top three works of art with the most votes and we also wanted to recognize the spectacular artwork of all of the artists involved in being guest artists for the day.
Chalk the Walk winners will be announced tomorrow.

ATTENTION PARENTS OF 6TH GRADERS
This is just a friendly reminder that your 6th-grade students will need to receive some updated immunizations prior to entering the 7th grade. So as you are making your way to their well-child checks with their doctors, just be aware they will need 2 or 3 immunizations. They will need a dose of Tdap (tetanus-diptheria-pertussis), and Meningococcal. And if they haven't already received it, they'll need a 2nd dose of Varicella (chickenpox). They will not be able to attend classes next year until their immunizations are updated. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Thanks so much!!
This is just a reminder that we no longer do scoliosis screenings in the school, but do recommend that you screen your child/children each year in 6th, 7th, AND 8th grade. The attached letter provides a little bit of information on scoliosis and how to properly conduct a screening. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
