2016-17 MJHS 8th Grade News

April Students of the Month

THE CLASS OF 2021

 

Dear 8th Grade MJHS Families:

 

The end of the 2016-2017 school year is quickly approaching.  This letter is to provide you with information regarding the 8th Grade Promotion Celebration!

 

8th Grade Promotion Ceremony:  Friday, May 12th at 5:30 p.m. at Stillman Valley High School

 

The Promotion Ceremony will take place at 5:30 p.m. with doors opening at 5:00 p.m..  In order to be eligible to participate in the ceremony, a student must be in good standing, which means he/she must be passing all classes, and have received no major referrals since April 18th.  Seating is limited, so we encourage only parents and grandparents to attend.

 

This is a casual attire event.  Students are encouraged to wear nice clothing such as khakis, polos, dress shirts, skirts, capris, or a casual dress.  School dress code applies:  no strapless or spaghetti strap dresses.  Skirts and dresses must be beyond fingertip length when standing.  

 

8th Grade Dance:  Saturday, May 20th from 6:00 to 8:00 at Meridian Junior High School

 

The 8th grade Dance is sponsored by the MJHS PTO.  It is a free event which features food and a DJ.  In order to attend students must be in good standing which means:  a student has no unexcused absences, major referrals or more than 1 minor since April 18th.  This event is also casual.  Students are encouraged to wear nice dress clothes.   No prom type dresses or midriffs showing. The PTO may refuse anyone at the door based on their attire.  If you are unsure of your dress, please show a picture of it to Mrs. Davis for approval ahead of time.

 

Parents are allowed to take pictures as students enter the dance, but will not be allowed inside.  

 

If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Davis.  See you soon!

The following link will take you to our school's solar panel website.  

Once you are there, click on the orange link above the picture that says, "Show Solar Data".  This will take you to real-time data for the energy that our panel is generating.  There is data dating all the way back to October when our panel was initially installed, even though they just got the website going.  It is pretty neat to look at the weekly and monthly tabs, keeping in mind the weather changes we have had on a seasonal and daily basis.
