Here are the highlights from the Weekly School Connects for the Week of October 21st!

Report Cards for quarter 1 will be available on Tuesday 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!

On Wednesday, we will be on the Extended RANCH Bell Schedule. Please make sure that you follow the bell schedule posted on the website, Twitter, and Facebook.

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.

Students are currently 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. If you have not taken them, we will be providing time throughout the week for students to come and finish them.

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 and regional competition this week. Congratulations to Girls and Boys #MustangGolf for winning District Championships this week!

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 opportunity. See any member of the yearbook staff for more information.

The Senior Panoramic will be held on Tuesday, October 30that 8:30AM in the gymnasium.

This week is Red Ribbon Week and we want to remind all of our students that #MustangsRiseAbove! We encourage you to make good choices as it relates to the use of drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and vapes. Do the right thing and follow the rules.
