Here are the highlights from the Weekly School Messenger call for the Week of May 10th!

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the Mustang Moms! We appreciate you and all that you do for our Mustangs!

Distance Learning continues! Thank you to all who have logged in and worked on your classes. We are very proud of you. Please continue to complete your assignments. There are many of you, however, who are lagging behind a bit. Please make sure that you catch up! There are three weeks left, so finish #MustangSTRONG!

Seniors! You will need to have your Distance Learning classes finished by May 22nd! Keep working hard! Seniors, please also make sure that you have logged in and paid your Senior Fees of $100. Finally, we want to let all Senior families know that we are selling Graduation Shoutouts for $10. Go to our website to find out more information. These Graduation Shoutouts will be included in the virtual graduation ceremony on June 6th at 6PM and the August in person graduation. We have extended the deadline to May 15th!

Best wishes to all of our students who will be taking AP Exams! Strive for excellence and a 5 and have integrity while you take your exams! You’ve got this and you are ready!

Student Council Elections for next year are coming up! 9th, 10th, and 11th grade elections will be on May 18th & 19th  through the class myLearning/CANVAS course. Campaigning for Student Council elections is allowed from May 11th to May 15th and social media ads must be approved by Mrs. Besack.

We know that closing schools means that many of our end of the year traditions are affected, including locker cleanout, our Nights of Excellence, yearbook distribution, and graduation. We have been working behind the scenes on how we can still make certain that we are able to continue these traditions with a twist. Please know that this is not how we thought the end of the year would be and we are doing everything we can to preserve these memories. We are now ready to announce our plans for these events.

We will have our Underclassmen Night of Excellence Virtually on May 27th at 6:30PM and our Senior Night of Excellence and Scholarship Night on May 28th at 6:30PM. They will be posted on our Facebook Page. Those students who will be recognized will be receiving invitations soon via email.

Administrators are cleaning out lockers and putting the contents in bags for each student with a locker. We will be collecting computers, textbooks, uniforms, and other JWMHS items and distributing yearbooks and locker contents, as well as caps and gowns soon! On May 22nd we will distribute to and collect from Seniors.  On May 26th we will distribute to and collect from Juniors, on May 27th to Sophomores, and May 28th to Freshman. We will be posting the schedule on what part of the alphabet comes when so that we can make this as smooth as possible. Please go to our website this week for more information.

Our Virtual Graduation Ceremony will be broadcast on June 6th at 6PM on the Pasco County Facebook Page. The In-Person Graduation Ceremony will be held at USF on August 15th at 6PM. We look forward to celebrating the Class of 2020!

We hope that you stay safe and stay home so that we can protect the health of our community and those we love. Wash your hands! Make good choices! Stay home! There are three weeks left, so finish #MustangSTRONG! We love you and miss you! Thank you for listening, and go Mustangs!
