7th Grade End of Year Packet Pick-Up

The below message was sent out to all 7th grade students and parents through email and Remind.

Attention 7th grade Students and Parents: We will have packets available for each student to pick up beginning May 12th-15th between 8:30 - 11:30 a.m. and again from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. These packets will include any items we would have given the student at the end of year celebration night. We will have something for everyone. Only one person, the student or the parent should report to the main entrance to pick up their items. You may park in the bus lane directly in front of the main entrance.

If you happen to arrive at a time when someone else is waiting to pick up a packet, we ask that you wait in your vehicle until the other student/parent returns to their vehicle. If you have other belongings that were left in the building that you need to pick up, you should do that at this time. We are required to follow all social distancing guidelines which includes wearing a mask. If you have questions or concerns, email or use remind to contact Mrs. Hayes.

Attention 2020-2021 7th Graders!

2020 8th Grade Graduation Information

The below message was emailed to all 8th grade parents and students. It was also sent out through the Remind.

Attention 8th Grade Parents and Students: Under the current Governor's executive order, all graduation ceremonies are prohibited at this time and it is unlikely that an in-person ceremony will even be allowed in the months to come. We have created a plan to move forward under the current restrictions. We will begin scheduling a time for each graduate with two family members to come to the school for a graduation picture and to gather their belongings. Graduates will receive everything that they would receive as if we had a complete ceremony.

We will have sanitized graduation gowns and a backdrop prepared for the picture. We will allow you to take the gown if you wish for additional pictures with family.

We are required to follow all social distancing guidelines set forth by the Governor, which includes wearing a mask. If you do NOT wish to enter the building for the picture, you may still pick up the student items only which can include a graduation gown if you wish. The gowns must be returned by June 5th.

Please arrive on time! We must stay on schedule in order to get everyone through over the course of 3 days. Thanks for your cooperation!

If you have additional questions or concerns, email or use Remind to message Mrs. Hayes.

MJHS House System

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.

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.
