Posted on 01/29/2017

 


WELCOME

Welcome back! Hope you had a great weekend! Have a great day and week! Welcome to February on Wednesday!


AFFIRMATIONS

I wanted to affirm both grades for the overall behavior in the assemblies last week.  You respected and listened to your speaker.  But most of all, you asked great questions! Now please tell me, why can we not have that behavior at all times? That is rhetorical, but reflect upon that and make better choices.


NAME BADGES

We're still seeing students without Name Badges; not wearing them.  Let’s review:  All students and staff will wear name badges for school safety reasons first and foremost!  God forbid any tragedy, but in a tragedy, your name badge will be valuable.  NB’s are to be worn except in PE/shop.  Before you leave those areas, put them back on!


HALL PASSES

We will implement HALL PASSES that you may use at teacher discretion.  Please understand that there may be times you need to be in class and just because you have a hall pass doesn't mean you can leave (emergency situations do occur, and we know that!). The HALL PASSES will be attached to the back of your name badges.  In order to use these, you must have your badge with the passes on the back.  You will receive 5 per quarter to use when it is necessary.  Once they are gone, they are gone! BE WISE in using your passes!


NATIONAL SHOWCASE SCHOOL

Poplar Bluff Junior High has been nominated for a National Showcase School for Capturing Kids’ Hearts. This is due to the great job students and staff do implementing and living the tools of CKH. On Tuesday, February 21st, a team from the Flippen Group will visit our school.  They will be talking to staff, to students, to parents, and walking the hallways! Our nomination has placed us a finalist for a CKH National Showcase School! There are 43 finalist this year out of over 10,000 schools that implement CKH! We, PBJHS, are one of the finalist!!!!  What an awesome recognition! Keep up the good work!


JH SOCCER COMING SOON

In the near future, we will have information for all students in our upcoming JH soccer season. The tentative date for beginning is February 27th! More info to come!


SCIENCE FAIR

It is an event in the future, but it will be here sooner than you think! Our Science Fair will be held on Friday, March 10th.  The gym will be used all day and evening for the event. 7th graders...Make us proud!

Our 2017 Valentine’s Dance will be held on Friday, February 10th from 6-8 p.m. WE HOPE THAT ALL WILL BE ABLE TO ATTEND! However, you must be on the “Go List” to do so! More information will follow!  


VOLLEYBALL SEASON/TRYOUTS

Volleyball season will begin on Monday, January 30th after school in the upper gym.  All ladies interested will need to have a completed physical form, parental permission, and proof of insurance prior to trying out for the team!  Open Gym on the 1/31 and Tryouts: February 1-3.
