Here are the highlights from the weekly School Messenger call for the week of January 13th!

This week we will begin reviewing course cards. Students will receive their course cards and have presentations in RANCH on the expectations for completing these. Please sit with your child and review their selections with them as these are decisions that will drive what courses they take next year, including the availability of classes.

We also want you to save the date for our upcoming ParentU that will address course selection for the next school year. It will be held on January 24that 6PM and will be for all grade levels.

This year, we are also doing something different in order to help parents and students in selecting classes. On Wednesday, January 29thfrom 6PM to 8PM we will hold course registration help sessions. This will allow parents and students to review their choices and ask more questions.

Congratulations to the following students who participated in the Florida All-State Band and Orchestra this weekend: William Benjamin, Sophia Colon, John Habib, Solomon Keim, and Abby McNulty. This was Abby’s third year in a row to be selected for All-State. The performances were amazing and we are very proud of them. JWMHS had 5 All-State members, the most for any Pasco County school ever.

Tomorrow, Monday, January 14that 6PM, our JV Soccer team will be remembering fellow player Ruhan Alam. Please come and pack the stands to show support for our JV Soccer team and your classmate.
