    We love it when our students cheer on our athletic teams!  As a reminder, when planning to support our athletic teams at JJHS, if not being directly supervised by a staff member, then you must exit at 3:10pm with personal belongings.  You cannot return to your locker during the event.   You can enter back into the building or be on the field at the start of the event.

     

    We are so pleased to see such awesome Patriots cheering in the stands and on the fields!  Keep up the POSTIVE behavior Patriots!

     

    Patriots have you been consistently checking your email?  Have you made a plan or time to consistently check Canvas too?  If not think about when you can check both on a regular basis.  Positive students do better in school.  This is one way to stay positive as a student at JJHS!  So take some time and check your email and Canvas every day!  Not sure how to do either of those two things?  Ask a peer, check in with a teacher or staff member for help!

     

    In your locker today, every student had a positive note.  This note is brought to you by Positivity Club and is to help you remember to our new Patriot’s Plus Protocol, Be Positive.  Hang this note in your locker to serve as a reminder all year to stay motivated and be positive!  Join us for our next Positivity Club meeting on October 1st.

    Yesterday, a much-improved 7th grade Patriot flag football team traveled to Lincoln hungry for a victory.

    In spite of a great effort and being in the game till the end, your Patriots were unable to come away with a win.  The Patriots have 4 days of what will be hard practices to improve as they take on Kennedy next Thursday.
