WELCOME

Welcome back! I hope you all had a great three day weekend! Welcome to October!


Chase Down the Bulldogs Spirit Day

This Thursday will be our last JH Home football game vs. the Sikeston Bulldogs..  On Thursday, we will have spirit day and all students and teachers  are encouraged to wear workout clothes/Sweats  for our theme of “Chase Down the Bulldogs”


Second Chance Breakfast

Second chance breakfast is going well, but we need to get through the lines a little faster!


End of the Quarter

The quarter will end on October 13


ICU
Our ICU program is up and going!  This program is not intended to be a “punishment”.  It’s an extra support designed to help students complete their work and learn the material. Put forth your best efforts and complete your work on time!  If you end up on the list repetitively, then before/after school tutoring or Saturday schools will be used to help get you caught up.  


Tutoring
Tutoring is available everyday after school in Mrs. Wilson’s room and before school in Mrs. Dell’s room..  Students who have two or more F’s at mid-terms will be in mandatory tutoring. I have spoken with each of you who are on the list.  I expect you to be there each week!


Challenge to you

Your new challenge:  8th grade, if you have less than 110 referrals by the end of the quarter, you may get your cell phones out at lunch.  7th grade, if you have less than 156 referrals by the end of the quarter, you will earn phones during lunch.  Right now, 7th has 122 and 8th has 95.


Bullying Awareness Month in October

October is Bullying Awareness month and we have a few activities planned.  We would like each academic lab to decorate a door, or a bulletin board, hallway or posters. I’ll provide posters if you let me know how many you’d like.  It would be fun to incorporate a Halloween theme since it’s October.  Tell your teacher your ideas!


School Store

Our school store is opening this week.  The winner of the name is “The Mule Shack”.


Student E-mail

All student email is monitored. If you use it for reasons other than school or we find anything inappropriate, you will lose access to your Google account.


CKH Focus

This week all students need to focus on recognizing and responding to the silent mule when it is being used.
