TJHS Winter Update 2016-2017

Now that the 1st Semester has come to a close and January is behind us, we have the opportunity to look ahead at the second half of the school year.  TJHS teachers and staff continue to provide a quality education to the students of this building.  We will celebrate our successes this Friday during our Second Quarter Academic Awards Assembly by distributing more than 450 certificates to students for Honor Roll (3.5-3.74), Principal's List (3.75-4.0), and Perfect Attendance.  With a new Semester in full swing, I want to provide a snapshot of upcoming events over the next couple of months.  Please note the dates for our state testing in March and April.  We will test in the morning on these days. 

I also want to share some resources to help you as parents, especially in the ever-growing area of cell phones and online activity.  Below are several links to assist you as you navigate the path of cell phone use and online activity with your child.  The last link even gives some reminders and tips to help us as parents keep our own cell phone use in-check!  Hopefully you find these links helpful as you navigate the sometimes challenging path of parenting in a digital world.
