2019-2020 MJHS Registration Dates

Tuesday, August 6th from 5-7pm

Wednesday, August 7th from 10-1pm

Students will receive their schedules at registration.

During the summer, we will be transitioning our student information system from InformationNOW to Alma. Due to the scope of this project, we will be unable to offer online pre-registration for 2019-20 as we have the previous two summers. In the meantime, we are working to make sure on-site registration is efficient as possible. Moving forward, we will be able to offer additional information system functionality for parents and students with our new system and online pre-registration beginning again for 2020-21. Thank you for your patience with our changes.

MJHS House meeting dates:

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.

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.
