However…there are a limited amount of yearbooks remaining for sale. If you do not buy a yearbook in February, you will not be guaranteed entry into the celebration of the year! So don’t delay and buy your book today!
  • The National Honor Society is offering tutoring to JHS students, starting now. We will not have a big gathering, where everyone meets after school on Wednesdays or whatever, but rather each tutor will contact each tutee to set up a time and place — this can be during impact if the teacher’s consent, or after school, or whatever works.   If you have a student who needs tutoring, have them fill out this form​ or have them type in http://goo.gl/forms/eFMQi2QGOJ or have them scan one of the QR codes on our posters in the cafeteria area.
