Second Chance Breakfast

  • Everyday at 8:30 we offer a second chance breakfast for our students! We have over 100 students participating right now. It is a grab and go breakfast in their grade level hallway with a juice that they take to class. This has doubled our breakfast participation and almost half of our student body is now eating a nutritious breakfast at school! We invite all students to participate.

1st Quarter ends on October 13

PBJHS Parent Teacher Conferences

We will have Parent Teacher conferences on Tuesday, October 24, from 3-9. These conferences are scheduled through the counselor. You will meet with the team of core teachers all at one time and then electives and PE are individual conferences with no appointment needed. Please call (573-785-5602) to schedule your appointment with the counselors.

  • School begins promptly at 7:34
  • Open containers of drinks are not allowed in the hallways or classrooms.
  • If students check out for lunch, make sure they are back on time, so it does not affect their attendance!
  • We have AM and PM tutoring that is free! All students with failing grades should be taking advantage of this opportunity!
