Here are the highlights from the Weekly School Connects for the Week of April 15th.

As you may know, April is Autism Awareness Month, and here at Mitchell, we want to celebrate and promote autism awareness. To support this cause, we are asking that students and faculty wear blue every Wednesday for the month of April. We had a wonderful showing on the first Wednesday this past week, and hope to see it grow in the coming weeksas we #LightItUpBlue.

Congratulations to our Girls #MustangTrack Team for placing 2ndin the District. Our ROTC Orienteering Team placed 2ndin the State. Maria Zelavaka had a first place victory and the team overall finished first in the hardest levels. Congratulations to Chief Saunders and all of the cadents.

Best wishes to our students who are presenting the AP Capstone Research & Seminar Projects this week and next. We also want to wish luck to all of the student athletes beginning district play in our spring sports.

9th& 10thgrade FSA ELA begins tomorrow. Please check your testing ticket for when you test. On the day that you test, you can receive a free school breakfast. Go to the Main Office for your voucher. Email Mrs. Bell with any questions.

JWMHS Thespians are proud to present Godspell. Thursday at 7PM is opening night at the RRHS PAC and there will be shows on Friday and Saturday at 7PM and Sunday at 2PM. You won’t want to miss it! Break a leg!

As a reminder, absence notes are due within 72 hours from date of return to the Student Services secretary in the Main Office. Notes will not be accepted after the 72 hour period and the absence will be unexcused. For the last two years we have had a link on our webpage to electronically submit a note and we would encourage you to use this.

Again, as a reminder, please do not deliver food to students or have a service deliver it to students. It will be confiscated and given to the student at the end of the day. Please follow our rules.

Also, we are not able to call students out of class after 2:40PM for early release. If a student must sign out early, please follow the procedure of submitting a note in the morning and we will have the pass ready for the student to leave in a timely manner.

As a reminder to our seniors, April 27this the due date for all online DBAs and coursework and May 4this the due date for all online Pasco eSchool and FLVS final exams if you plan on participating in graduation on May 27th.

We also want to remind seniors to start looking around their houses, cars, and lockers for any materials that may belong to JWMHS and return them to school, especially uniforms, media center books, and any debt that may be owed, including Senior Fees, which are $80.

Seniors, If you are interested in going to Grad Bash, we have a few more seats available. Please see Mrs. Berry-Guth or Mrs. Mooney in portables 15 and 16. For those going, we will be passing out the permission and expectations forms on Tuesday during first period. These forms are due on Monday, April 23rd.

May we #CommitToExcellence each and every day and show how #ExcellenceNeverStops at JWMHS!

We hope that you have a fantastic week! Go Mustangs!
