Random Thoughts From Mrs. Summers This Week

Hello and Happy Wednesday Amazing Patriots,

Oh how we all miss your beautiful faces! We are quite literally counting the days until the sounds of your adorable voices fill the school halls again. I hope your summer break has been filled with giant ice cream on the bottom snowcones, slip and slides (hopefully more sliding than slipping), and experiencing the sheer joy of having no pesky alarm clock to have to answer to.

As we start getting ready to head into this new year, I can't begin to tell you how much excitement I am trying to wrestle and contain thinking about all of the learning and joy we are going to experience next year (for me, trying to contain my excitement is like trying to wrestle a popsicle away from a toddler that quietly snuck it out of the bottom drawer freezer and has no intention of surrendering the sugar peacefully!)

Some things I hope you are looking forward to are:

  • Getting to come into the library before and after school to spend some quality time with a favorite book, and our super sweet Librarians.
  • JH dances...(get excited and stayed tuned on how to earn a glow-in-the-dark dance when we raise our SRI scores.)
  • No lunches in classrooms!
  • Snack shack churros! (Come on... Who does not like snack shack churros?)
  • Getting to see everyone's whole face
  • Student Body Officer elections at the FIRST of the year
  • School dance team and sporting events where ALL fans can attend
  • Field Trips
  • Assemblies
  • Getting to see our Performing Arts groups perform IN PERSON!
  • Barcode scanners for QUICK PBIS points!
  • Getting to know all of the new students, and catching up with some familiar faces.
  • IB Community projects
  • Lockers!!!

The list could go on and on and on (like a parent goes on and on about " you know, back in my day...")! So Patriots, lace-up or retro velcro those sneakers, organize your backpacks, and get ready for a spectacular 2021-2022 school year!

As always Patriots...

You are loved!

Mrs. Summers

Back to School Night 8/12/21 from 6:00-7:30

Patriots, would you like to walk the school and see your classrooms before the first day of school?

Would you like to see some old friends, or maybe make some new ones?

Would you like a cookie just for going in to see Mrs. Olsen in the cafeteria?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should gather up your crew, and come to our PHJH Back to School Night event. We will have punch cards that you can get stamped from different areas in the school, and be entered into a drawing for 50 PBIS points just for getting your completed punch card drawn out.

This is open house style, so don't feel like you have to rush from other schools. Just mosey on in anytime between 6:00-7:30.

PTO will be here as well, so don't miss your chance to get to know our new PTO leader Kim Crandall and possibly some other angelic PTO partners as well. (Hint...The PTO table is one of the places you will need to get your punch card stamped.)

A Word From Out School Nurse Mrs. Ponce (Immunizations Info)

**ALL 7th graders are required to receive their 7th-grade immunizations. They are the Tdap booster, the meningococcal vaccine, and to make sure 2 doses of the varicella, or chicken pox, vaccine have been received.

**Since I am out of the office for July, I will not be able to look immunizations up until after I return. Even then, with all the requests it will take some time. And they are due before school starts. It might be best to check with your doctor's office, as your student may not receive their schedule and/or be able to start classes without the updated immunizations. We will (and have in the past) had to pull students out of class on the first day for immunizations that are not up to date.

**If your 7th grader has had an exemption in the past, they WILL need a new exemption. When new vaccines are required, a new exemption is needed. This new exemption should now last through High School as there are no more required vaccines after the 7th-grade immunizations.

**Places to receive childhood vaccines include: the Health Department, your doctor's office, any local pharmacy (ie, Walmart, Walgreen's, Harmon's, Smith's, etc), or CNS (Community Nursing Services - they have immunizations clinic's throughout the summer but they do fill up quickly).

**ALL new students are required to turn in a copy of their immunization record. Please know that it may take some time for me to go through these records. Here is what is required:


*5 doses of the DT or dTap vaccine series

*4 doses of the Polio vaccine

*2 doses of the MMR vaccine

*3 doses of Hepatitis B vaccine

*2 doses of the Hepatis A vaccine

*2 doses of the Varicella (chicken pox) vaccine

FOR 7th-12th GRADERS:

*all of the above listed under 6th graders, plus

*1 dose of the Tdap booster

*1 dose of the Meningococcal vaccine

The Nutrition Department is excited to share a few key items for next year:

We are looking forward to being able to serve free meals to all students for the upcoming school year. These meals are being supplied through the Seamless Summer Program. Students will be able to receive one free breakfast and one free lunch a day. Any additional meals are available at a cost in addition to a la carte items.

We ask that all families, please, continue to fill out Free/ Reduced Meal applications because federal programs are based on Free/ Reduced percentages. Free/ Reduced Meal applications are available in Skyward.

When you go to the Mealviewer website you will need to choose your school and create a profile.

You can access our new online menu platform in multiple ways.

Parents, we do ask that you continue to help your student(s) to bring their school ID's daily so we can continue to have touchless points of sale during meal times.

Want To Know a Super Easy Way To Help PHJH Get Some Extra Cash?

Did you know you can help the schools earn money while little to no effort doing what you normally do? Through the Amazon Smile program and the Smith"s Inspiring Donations program the companies give the schools a portion of what you spend. It all adds up! Signing up is quick and easy and only needs to be done once but the funds are used for the benefit of all three campuses. Please check out the information below.
