SLJH Spartan News
Week of May 18, 2020
The Last Day of Instruction is Thursday, May 21!
We hope you have an enjoyable summer with your families and we hope to see you in August for the 2020-2021 school year!
To our 8th graders, we wish you the very best in high school and know you will carry on what you have learned here at SLJH. You will be missed!
Student Access to the Building Continues This Week!
The SLJH procedures for this process are as follows:
· Sign up for a time to drop off school items and pick up personal items by clicking on these links: (only sign up for one time please!)
Please note that anyone entering the building MUST wear a mask. Students may be accompanied by one adult but it is not necessary. Social distancing guidelines (staying 6 feet apart) will be enforced.
· Please gather all school items such as technology devices, library books, textbooks, books borrowed from ELA teachers, instruments checked out, choir uniforms, athletics equipment, and PE clothes that need to be returned to school. Please place technology devices that were checked out from the district in a Ziploc bag with the charger and cord included. The campus will send an electronic receipt by email after technology devices have been turned in. You will receive the receipt within 7-10 business days.
· Students will be given an opportunity to clean out personal items from lockers and PE lockers, as well as pick up other items that may belong to them such as artwork and portfolios. We recommend students bring a bag to place all of their belongings in as the school will not be providing one.
*If you do not feel comfortable having your student come into the building, you may place items belonging to the school on the cart outside the door located at the Northeast corner of the building as you come through the front drive. You do not need to sign up for a time to do this. The cart will be available on the following dates from 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.: May 18, 19, 20.
SLJH will be distributing awards to students on May 18th and 19th. If your child has been selected for an award, you will be notified via email with specific pick up information. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and the reduced access this has caused, we are only able to distribute a limited number of awards this year. These awards include only "special" awards selected by teachers and do not include Honor Roll or Perfect Attendance.

Summer Reading Program
Spartans, we have a GREAT summer reading program for you in which you can earn badges by finding your passion!
It could be reading, creating or discovering what interests YOU! This is an optional program so you can earn as many or as little badges as you like.
The program works through Canvas and will allow you to go at your own pace. You have many different options to choose from.
You Choose the Badges that YOU want to earn!
We will be promoting different resources and highlighting different skills each week so keep an eye out for the Canvas announcements.
The program will go LIVE on June 1st and end on July 31st.
If you are interested, you can already self-enroll by scanning the QR code on the flyer below or visiting the link provided.
This is your opportunity to read, create or discover your passion in the library so don’t miss out!
Our current 8th grade Spartans will also have an opportunity to participate in a High School Summer reading program if they choose to do so. Their program will go LIVE on May 15th! This information will be sent to parents of 8th grade parents in a separate email.
