PBJHS Student Announcements

March 12 through March 16, 2018



Welcome back! I hope everyone had a great weekend! I don’t know about you all, but I am so ready for warm weather!

Instagram Kindness Challenge

Students we are asking you to participate in our kindness challenge! Find the Instagram kindness task cards, complete the task and post on Instagram with the #550kind and tag @pbjhs.  

Makeup Days for Students

Beginning 4th quarter we will offer a Saturday date right before midterms and a Saturday date right before the quarter ends to any student who would like to come in and work on assignments,  use the wifi, get help from the teachers working, etc.. This will be voluntary and not used as a punishment. Please take advantage of this offer if you have poor grades or missing assignments.


As of right now, we have recovered 4, 835 assignments in ICU. This program is designed to help you be successful!  Not doing the work is no longer an option.

Girls STEM Trip

45 of our 7th grade girls will be gone with their science teachers on Tuesday participating in a STEM field trip organized by Southeast Missouri State University.

JROTC Assemblies

Members of the high school JROTC will be here Tuesday, March 13th to give a presentation about the program to 8th graders. Eighth grade students are to go to the gym during their academic lab for this presentation.

STUCO “March 14 Walkout”

I don’t know if you are all aware, but on March 14th, there are supposed to be nationwide school walkouts.  Students are walking out to send a message to lawmakers that they want their schools to be safer and to repeal gun laws.  Our student council approached me and asked to work with me on this. We decided that on March 14, they will be organizing a memorial from 7:00-7:20 at the flagpole to honor the 17 victims who lost their lives in the Parkland Florida shooting.  They will speak about how as a school and as a nation, we need to be kinder to each other and stop the hate and violence. I told them we needed to keep it positive and not political; and they were fine with that. At 7:17 we will release 17 balloons.  I thought it sounded like a fantastic tribute and I would encourage anyone to attend. They will be organizing it and promoting it with the student body.

MAP Dates

 Communication Arts will test during the week of April 30.  Math will test the week of May 7th and Science the week of May 14.  

Cell Phone Trial Week

The cell phone trial week will end on Wednesday.  I will survey teachers and students to see how we thought it went before deciding to stay with it or not.

Student PD Day

Student PD day is coming soon! 8th graders know what I’m talking about.  It is a day where students can choose to go to any class they want! We will have everything from cooking to taekwondo.  Be watching for more details coming soon!

Fighting at School

We have way too many students lately who are trying to solve their problems with violence.  Fighting will result in long term suspensions. We will not tolerate it. This school is to be a safe place focused on learning.  We have two counselors and an administrative team that can help with issues before they turn into discipline situations. Use your words and seek help.
