TJHS Winter 2013-2014 Update

I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays with family and friends.  The new year has found us off to a very cold start, with temps dipping down to -35 degrees with the wind chill!  I would like to remind all of our families of the plan to make-up school days if we would exceed five calamity days during this school year.  The make-up days are (in this order) May 30, June 2, 3, 4, 5.  Beginning with the 2014-2015 school year, we will transition to student hours of instruction instead of days.  Students in grades 7-12 will need to complete 1001 hours of instruction.  Based on the current formula, TJHS exceeds this number and is poised to be well prepared to meet the change from days to hours.  As we start a new year, I'd like to share some upcoming important dates with our school community:

Jan. 10 - End of 2nd Quarter
Jan. 13 - Start of 3rd Quarter
Jan. 17 - 1 Hour Early Release
Jan. 20 - NO SCHOOL - Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
Jan. 21 - Grade Cards Go Home
Jan. 23 - Conferences - 3:00-6:30PM
Jan. 28 - 2nd Quarter Academic Awards Assembly
Feb. 14 - NO SCHOOL - Teacher In-service Day
Feb. 17 - NO SCHOOL - President's Day
Feb. 20 - Conferences - 3:00-6:00PM

Happy New Year and Go Trojans!
