Here are the highlights from the weekly school messenger call for the week of October 14th!

We do not have school tomorrow for students. We will see you on Tuesday! Enjoy your day off and prepare for the beginning of a new quarter. Report Cards for quarter 1 will be available on Thursday in myStudent. Create an account now to follow the progress of your student. We will be addressing loss of privilege in the next week. Remember, attendance is important!

As a point of emphasis for today’s call, please be in dress code. Make sure that shirts do not go off of the shoulder and that the midriff is not showing. Shoulders should not be exposed completely. Tying shirts at the bottom causes a shirt to be out of dress code. Specifically, shirts must be able to be tucked in and remain tucked in. This is the way that you will know that it is within dress code. Putting a jacket or sweater on will not solve your dress code issue. If you are out of dress code, you will need to change your clothes. We also want to remind everyone to be aware of the length of skirts, dresses, and shorts. Please visit the school website for further information regarding the dress code should you have any questions.

This week, students will be participating in the Gallup Survey done each year by the District Office. 9th, 10th, and 11thgraders will also be participating in a survey to determine academic potential now and in the future. We ask that you take both of these surveys seriously as the information gathered will help in making decisions for JWMHS and our programs for students.

We have started Socktober and will collect socks for different local charities. Socks will be collected in RANCH classes! We will need socks for all ages including babies to adults. For every 10 pairs of socks that you turn in to your RANCH teacher, you will earn Bahama Bucks!

If you have middle school and high school students, please drop off your middle school student first. Turning left out of the high school causes traffic jams. Please be considerate of each other and follow the rules.

Best wishes to all of our teams in district competition this week. We also want to wish the Marching Mustangs good luck in their competition this weekend!

Congratulations to our Boys #MustangSwimAndDive on their victory at Conference this weekend! Colin Dempsey won the conference in diving and Austin Erickson won the conference in the 100m breaststroke! Our Girls #MustangSwimAndDive took third place and we want to congratulate them too!

If you are a senior and member of the Class of 2019, please go to our website and complete the CAP & GOWN and DIPLOMA order link. You can find it on the sliders, as well as the Class of 2019 webpage.

We also want to remind seniors to make your senior portrait appointment ASAP. Only half of you have had your senior picture taken. You must take a picture with Gigante Productions in order to be in the yearbook. So, call Gigante Productions at 813-907-1078. A limited number of senior photo appointments will be available on campus on November 9th, but appointments are filling up fast! See Mrs. McNulty if you want to sign up for a spot. The deadline for seniors to be photographed for the yearbook is November 12 and it is fast approaching. Finally, the deadline for senior dedication pages in the yearbook is December 14th. Do not miss out on this opportunitiy. See any member of the yearbook staff for more information.

Have a great week! And, go Mustangs!
