Supporting your student in their learning throughout the semester will make a difference.  That support can be making sure there is scheduled time for homework/review, a quiet place to study, asking questions about what they learned on a particular day and early intervention and contact with the school if you feel they are not achieving. 

Please note the information under Announcements showing the 2014-2015 JHSS School Year Calendar and Transportation Details for the coming year.

If you have any questions or concerns about your son/daughters’ education, contact their classroom teacher, guidance counselor or Vice Principal.
