                                   FOR STUDENTS

Poplar Bluff Junior High School

January 3 -January 11, 2019



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 17 Fridays left in this school year!

House Competitions

7th grade rocked out the house competitions first semester.  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…… This semester’s winner will go to the park for a cookout and time to hangout/play in May.   8th Grade, I’m challenging you to get involved and give 7th grade a run for their money this semester!

Tardies/Late to Schools

Tardies and late to schools start over this semester!! BE ON TIME!!!  You only get 3 tardies per class, per semester.  Every tardy after the 3rd one is a write up and a detention from your teachers.  You will get 5 new hall passes for this quarter.  Use them wisely.  

New Lunch Line

Beginning January 7th, Chartwells will add a Made to Order sandwich station for students and staff that will be available everyday outside the cafeteria.  They will offer breads, wraps, buffalo chicken, turkey, ham, cheese and toppings: lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles.

7th Grade School Improvement Committee

I’m looking for 3 students from each house in the 7th grade, to be on a school improvement committee that will meet with me on working 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.


The flu is going around bad!  Please wash your hands and use hand sanitizer.  Sneeze and cough into your elbows. Anyone who can, please bring a box of kleenex or Clorox wipes  in and give to a teacher! We will need them!

Cold Weather

We are experiencing brutally cold  and dangerous temperatures. Students must wear appropriate clothing and a coat to school!  If you are in need of any of these items, please let me or the counselors know.

Report Cards

Report cards will be mailed/emailed home on January 4th.

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.  

Student ID’s

Students must have their ID’s for lunch and breakfast or they will go to the end of the line.  ID’s are to be worn every day, all day.
