Dublin Jerome High School
Jan. 24, 2020
Even though it was a four day week it was busy and active. Students are well into the second semester and hard at work in their classes. Please note that next week is the fourth week of the quarter and parent-teacher conferences are on the horizon. Please take some time this weekend to discuss and review your child's progress. If you have any questions, concerns or need support, I would encourage you to reach out to their teacher.
I have been out and about in classes and this week and the level of engagement and learning that is going on here in our classrooms is a credit to our teachers and your kids. We are all working hard to help prepare them for success when they leave Jerome and head to their next phase in life. Thank you for sending your child to us each day and trusting us to develop quality learning experiences for them.
Have a wonderful weekend!
