All students are required to stay until 2:55pm on these meeting dates. Students will only be allowed to leave early on these dates if a parent comes to the office and signs them out.

Each house represents one of our core values.

We have 6 houses at MJHS. Students are randomly sorted into a house. We hope to use the house system to build a better sense of community at MJHS. Students will work with their house members throughout the year to help support each other, our school and our community. We will have house meetings 2 days a month and students are required to attend these meetings. They are held during homeroom time from 2:33-2:55.
