Highlights from the Weekly School Messenger Call for the Week of Sep. 26

Good Evening, Mustangs!

Keep working hard, Mustangs! If you are not satisfied with your grades, now is the time to speak with your teachers, turn in work, be in all of your classes, and finish the quarter #MustangSTRONG. You still have time to improve your grades before the end of the quarter. As September is Attendance Awareness Month, we want to remind you to be in school because attendance matters.

Our Early Release Day will be Wednesday, October 6th. This will also be our Underclassmen Make Up Picture Day.

Congratulations to Mustang Girls Cross Country who placed 2nd and Mustang Boys Cross Country placed 5th. Big win for Boys Mustang Swimming and Diving over LOLHS and congratulations to Girls Mustang Volleyball for winning their tournament this weekend! Also, congratulations to our NJROTC Brain Bowl Teams who finished 4th and 5th and qualified for the State Championships!

Mrs. Chamberlin will be hosting one last College Application Help session for seniors on Monday, September 27th from 3:05 PM to 5:00 PM in the Media Center! Please register for the event by visiting our website so Mrs. Chamberlin knows how many will be in attendance! She will also cover essays, the SSAR, and how to submit your applications!! Remember the CRC is open during lunches as well for questions and support!!

Our Homecoming Week will be October 4th to October 8th and our theme is Party in the USA. Our game will be held on Friday, October 8th and our dance will be held on Saturday, October 9th from 6PM to 10PM.

JWMHS Student Behavior Agreements are online on our website, as well as guest request forms. Guest request forms are due on Friday, October 8th at 12PM. These are for NON-JWMHS students. Do not miss the deadline! Ticket sales have begun and will only be sold via Rycor. You can purchase either an all-inclusive wristband for $40 or individual event tickets for $3 each and a dance ticket for $35 each. When you pick up your wristband or ticket, you will need to submit your JWMHS Student Behavior Agreement. See our website for more information!

Parents/Guardian will need to make sure that they have completed the Dance Expectations Meeting for Parents/Guardians. If you need to do so, I will be adding the course to every student who does not have a Dance Number on file. This will happen later this evening and you will receive a separate email. I am currently going through my emails regarding concerns or issues with Dance Numbers and am continuing to answer them throughout the evening. Thank you for your patience.

If you are concerned about your dress or outfit, please make sure that you email Ms. Schultz so that she can review the outfit and give approval.

If you have an eSchool placeholder, on campus or off campus, please sign up for your classes as soon as possible. Directions can be found on our website.

Freshmen! Please make sure that you order your FREE MustangU Class of 2025 t-shirt by visiting our Spirit Store: https://accounthub.imagedepotexpress.com/jwm_freshman_u_tees/shop/home! Enter your code:  jwfresh21 to get your shirt and it will be delivered directly to the school.

Please make sure that you can pass the Covid-19 screener (Student Covid-19 Screener) each morning that is found on our website. If you cannot, please stay home. If you are positive for Covid-19 or have been exposed to someone who is positive for Covid-19, please stay home and contact your administrator so that we can help you with your school work.

Please read our JWMHS Electronic Newsletter, Around the RANCH. You can find it here: https://www.smore.com/3sgpq and we will be putting a lot of information in this newsletter that can assist you throughout the year.

The best way to be successful at JWMHS is to listen to the things we say and read the information that we put out. We communicate in a variety of ways and ask that you make sure that you are paying attention and following us on social media.

We want to remind you that you need to respect each other and just be nice. Calling each other names, posting negative things online, and acting inappropriately towards each other is uncalled for and unnecessary. Again, just be nice. And if you can’t find something nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.

Parents, allegedly the next TikTok Challenge is a Slap a Staff Member in the Backside Month. I highly recommend that students not participate in this as this is considered battery and a felony. Please speak with your child about behaving appropriately.

We hope you have a great evening! Thank you for reading!

Go Mustangs!

Highlights from the Weekly School Messenger Call for the Week of Sep. 12

Good Evening, Mustangs!

We hope that you have great upcoming week.

Keep working hard, Mustangs! Progress Reports were released on Friday, September 10th! Students, if you are not satisfied with your grades, now is the time to speak with your teachers, turn in work, be in all of your classes, and finish the quarter #MustangSTRONG. You still have time to improve your grades before the end of the quarter.

This phone call will address multiple issues that have occurred this week on and off campus.

Parents, I am asking that you have a conversation with your child about vandalizing and stealing Pasco School Board Property. We have had student destroying bathrooms by pouring red Kool-aid in the toilets, ripping soap machines off of the walls, and trashing the bathrooms. Doing this is a crime and those who are found committing such acts will be disciplined and arrested. This needs to stop. If you have information that leads to the remainder of the students who have committed these acts, please email me or fill out our See Something, Say Something link on our website with details, pictures, and video if you have it (https://jwmhs.pasco.k12.fl.us/mform/embed.php?id=17056).

We want to remind you that you need to respect each other and just be nice. Calling each other names, posting negative things online, and acting inappropriately towards each other is uncalled for and unnecessary. Again, just be nice. And if you can’t find something nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.

I am also asking that you have a conversation with your child about the dangers of posting inappropriate pictures online, especially when they are sent via cell phone text or chat messages and when they are of another individual. Doing this is a crime. Unfortunately, this is something that we have had to address this year on multiple occasions and we need your help.

Finally, we also need your help in reminding students that they need to behave and act appropriately in the community. Local businesses have contacted us that students are vandalizing property and loitering. Again, this is not something that I am sure that as parents you would allow your child to do, especially if it meant that there could be legal trouble coming from it. We need to be good citizens and support each other.

Freshmen! Please make sure that you order your FREE MustangU Class of 2025 t-shirt by visiting our Spirit Store: https://accounthub.imagedepotexpress.com/jwm_freshman_u_tees/shop/home! Enter your code:  jwfresh21 to get your shirt and it will be delivered directly to the school.

I trust that I will be able to speak about all of the amazing things that our Mustangs do on and off campus.
We hope you have a great evening! Thank you for reading!
