                                          FOR STUDENTS

Poplar Bluff Junior High School

    January 4 -January 8, 2021



Welcome back!  I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas Vacation! I know I sure did!  Half the year down, half to go before summer vacation! Only  18 Fridays left in this school year! 

House Competitions

The first semester winner of the house competition is Giambelluca House! They will receive a reward later this  month and I’ll announce that when details have been planned.   They rocked it out first semester and gave the 7th grade houses a run for their money. We start all over this semester!  Each grading period, points will be earned for attendance, good grades and lack of discipline.  You can also earn points for participating in spirit events,  attendance at JH games, house t-shirt day every Wednesday, etc…… 

2nd Semester Schedules

2nd semester schedules will be passed out first hour on Monday.  Any student who has a first hour elective and doesn’t remember what it is, please stop by the office and we will get you a new copy of your schedule.

Math Survey

I need students who haven’t taken the math survey yet to please do so this week.  Please click this link to participate.

Tardies/Late to Schools/Hall passes

Tardies and late to schools start over this semester!! BE ON TIME!!!  You only get 5 tardies per class, per semester.  Every tardy after the 5th one is a write up and a detention from your teachers.  You will get 5 new hall passes for this quarter this week.   Use them wisely.  


Students who miss more than 15 days of school for the year, (verified or unverified) will be required to attend mandatory summer school.  This is school policy and is in the handbook.  Attendance matters!  Covid absences are not included in this. 

7th Grade School Ambassador Committee

I’m looking for 3 students from each house in the 7th grade, to be on a school ambassador committee that will meet with Coach Sowell and myself and work on ideas for school improvement.  I will send out an email with an application by the end of next week.  We will meet during 5th hour, once or twice a month.  

Report Cards

Report cards will be mailed/emailed home on January 8th.


Hallway Behavior

The hallways have become way too loud during passing times and in the mornings coming up from breakfast.  There is no need to shout and scream.  Use inside voices or you will be asked to go back and try again until it’s an acceptable noise level.
