December is always a busy month at FJH. The Holiday season creates a festive atmosphere at school and our students and staff enjoy the extra energy it brings. There are challenges, though…during December, our students will be devoting much time to finishing projects and assignments before the holiday break. Parents, it is very important to keep up with your child’s grades at this time of the year. It is especially difficult for students to maintain their academic focus now and we need your help to encourage students to work hard and study for their exams. Please remember that the nine weeks exams occur the week before the Christmas break. This is a critical time for many students, and it will take all of us to help them achieve their best. Come out and see our Band, Orchestra, and Chorus Holiday concerts. The information can be found on the Calendar section of the FJH Website.
In January, basketball and soccer continue as we begin the third nine weeks. Again, with state testing coming up in April, it is critical to keep up with your child’s progress and stay in tune with what’s going on at school.
Have a great Holiday break and as always…thanks so much for all you do to make FJH a great school!!!
