Summer Break is Right Around the Corner!

Hello Parents and Students

This week started with our final two STAAR Test on Tuesday and Wednesday, math and reading. Now we just have a couple of weeks until the students leave for the summer break. May 27 will be an early release day at 12:25pm for the JH campus. Please remember even though testing is over we are still having class and taking grades for the final 9 weeks of the school year.


Your child/children were sent a 6 weeks progress report this past Wednesday through School Messenger. Please communicate with your child/children's teacher if you have any concerns about their grades. If for any reason your child fails a class for the year, you will be contacted by the teacher.


Registration for the 2021-2022 school year will start on July 14, 2021. We will remind you again in the June and July Newsletters. Please have a great summer break. Take care and be safe. Thank you for a great year! Go Mustangs!

IMPORTANT NEWS !!!

8th grade Parents and Students

Due to COVID we will not have an 8th grade promotion ceremony. We will give your 8th grader their promotion certificates and any awards they earned on the last day of school. We have a fun morning planned for them before we send them off to the high school.


Thank you so much for allowing us to teach your child/children for the last three years. Our goal is to always have them prepared for their freshman year by providing the curriculum required by the State of Texas (TEKS). We want to be a partner with the parents to provide your child/children with the best education , but more importantly our staff wants to send them off being the best person they can be each day. Their health, safety, and social-emotional well-being are just as critical. We love them and will miss them as they grow into wonderful, strong, and determined young men and women. As they finish this chapter of their education, we hope their preparation will assist them on their future academic endeavors. Please let us know if you ever need any help.


Sincerely,

Madisonville JH Staff
