What's Happening At TRJHS!
From the Desk of Mr. Sturges, Principal
It didn't take long to shake the summer break and get right back into the swing of things. Eighth grade classes are reading classic literature, in most cases "The Outsider's" while 7th grade is working on order of operations in math classes. Recently I was able to observe a social studies lesson where students were able to move around the room to indicate their level of agreement (or disagreement) with government practices as they are learning about the Patriot Act and discussing the role of government as it was created. 7th grade science classes are frequently hosting a variety of lab experiments including "the 5 second rule" put to the test on slices of bread and also experiments to make learning about mass and matter more fun. Leaving the core academic wing it is not unlikely to catch a quick performance from our choruses or bands, both of which sound fantastic already and it's only the end of September. After that bridges are being built next door to robots during exploratories. There is a tremendous amount of teaching and learning happening here on a daily basis at TRJHS!
Girls field hockey recently participated in a jamboree where they were able to compete against other middle schools.
