Student Announcements September 3-6

Posted on 09/02/2019


Poplar Bluff Junior High School




I hope you all enjoyed a nice four day weekend!  The year is flying already!

Student Council

Any student interested in joining student council for this school year needs to stop by Mrs. Berry’s room (124) to pick up an application on Friday, September 6.  If you are in 8th grade and were in student council last year, there is no need to re-apply.


Tutoring begins this week.  Science tutoring will be on Tuesday, English on Wednesday and social studies on Thursday.  I will announce at the end of the day what room that will be in. The library is open everyday after school from 3-4 for catching up on work and using the Chromebooks. Click for the Tutoring Enrollment Form.

Fire Drill

You guys did a great job of exiting the building quickly.  Our goal is to have everyone out in under 4 minutes. We were at 4:06.  A couple of reminders: Never go back into the building for something you’ve forgotten.  Also, if you hear the fire alarms or a long bell, evacuate the building.


Our ICU program will be up and running this week.  Remember, this is not a punishment. If you receive ICU for a missing assignment, this is an opportunity at school for an extra 50 minutes of time to complete it during lunch.  Please click here to read the parent letter.

Football Game Behavior

I want to praise you all for your excellent behavior at the football game!  Mr. Teeter and I were very impressed. Keep it up! We have another home game this Friday night.

Selling items at School

Students are not allowed to sell any outside candy, sodas, snacks, etc.. without permission from Mrs. Warren.  This is a violation of the handbook policy and consequences will follow.


Students, please make sure you are keeping your table clean and your trash picked up in the cafeteria.  Remember to use the stairs to your left as you exit the lunchroom. Our outdoor area is awesome! The rules out there are simple: don’t leave food on the ground, don’t twirl the umbrellas, only 4-5 to a table and ENJOY the sunshine and outdoor!  I hope you guys love that area as much as I do.

School Pictures

School pictures will be taken on Thursday, September 5th during PE Classes.

Cell Phone Reminder

Any student who uses their cell phone to video a fight, or any other inappropriate actions or uses it to bully other students at school via social media will be suspended.  We have zero tolerance on bullying.


Fundraiser money and order forms are due on September 14! Get out there and sell those items for our school:)  Sell 10 items and you will get to miss a day of school in April and go to a Cardinal’s game.


Every 8th grader must have their 8th grade shots on file! If you have not done that yet, please take care of it this week.  After Labor Day, students who do not have their up to date immunizations, will not be allowed to attend school until they receive them.
