Beginning January 17 until March 6, students will meet with their counselors during Collaboration Periods to make scheduling requests for the upcoming school year courses. After Collaboration, students should go over their requests with their parents. Following Collaboration, counselors will begin meeting with students one-on-one to finalize their course requests. At the individual student meeting, students will be handed the Graduation Progress and Course Selection sheet.

NOTICE WORLD LANGUAGE BOOK UPDATE Aug 7, 2019
We are continuing to work with EMC Publishing (the providers of our World Language books) to address the issue of book purchasing for our parents on their website. The books are now available; please follow the instructions carefully to ensure you are purchasing the correct books. Remember, you do not need to purchase both the ebook and the textbook; you may choose one or the other. However, every student will need the workbook.
What is a Collaboration Period?
Most Wednesdays begin with a “Collaboration Period” which run from 8:15-9:30 a.m. Some Collaboration Periods are used for faculty and some are used for students.
Collaboration Periods for faculty include things like Professional Learning Community meetings and additional department meeting time (for things like year-level meetings or interdepartmental collaboration).
- Students must wear a collared JHS-authorized logowear shirt to school each day.
- Sweatshirts and outerwear may also be worn so long as they are JHS-authorized logowear.
How do I get started?
The PowerSchool Parent Access System is intended to provide parents, students and teachers with a tool to communicate student performance. It is a Web-based application that may be accessed from any place the parent/guardian can access the Internet. The application is a secure link that encrypts the data to and from the end user. In addition, a username and password are provided to allow access for only authorized users to the appropriate student record.
Help students establish meaningful post-secondary goals and connect those goals with their coursework and college planning activities.
