Updates for Stilwell Junior High School Families
Sept. 19, 2022
Message from Principal Kuhnert
Families thanks for a great start to the school year. We had a chance last week to show off our new facilities to our school board members and they were impressed with the work that has been completed so far. As students start to get settled into the year we will start to see new behaviors. We have noticed an up tick in classroom tardies so we will be focussing on this as a staff. Please talk to your students and make sure they understand the importance of being to class on time. Staff will be working with their Tiger Time students but parents can see their students tardies on Infinite Campus as well. We encourage you to keep up with that information and reach out if you have questions to your counselors. Who are the counselors you ask? Watch the below video to meet Mr. Johnson and Ms. Cooper.

We had a bit of a scare last week with our students walking across Grand Ave at 16th Street. We reminded all students to use the cross walk at the corner of Vine and Grand when coming to school. We know that is a bit of a walk for some students but it is much safer. Reminder that when the new lot on the North side of our building in complete the current entrance off of Grand will move further down which will improve the congestion of that area. Stay safe and move slowly when you turn right out of the parking lot.
