BULLYING:  Is It Bullying?

  • When someone says or does something unintentionally hurtful and they do it once, that is RUDE

  • When someone says or does something intentionally hurtful and do it once, that is MEAN

  • When someone says or does something intentionally hurtful and they keep doing it- even when you tell them to stop or show them you are upset, that is BULLYING

  ****Please remind your students this includes things they say/post on social media****

PBIS STORE:  The next PBIS store is Thursday, May 4th.  Please have all your birdbucks signed.  Last one for the year!

LOST AND FOUND:  The Lost and Found is located outside the MJHS office. Please make sure your student claims his/her lost items. You are more than welcome to come and check it out for yourself. Items not claimed will be donated

MORNINGS:  Remember there is no supervision before 7:00 a.m. If you drop your student off before that, they will be outside until the building opens at 7:00 am. 

ACTIVITY ELIGIBILITY – 

  • If your student is involved in an activity, they must be academically eligible.  Academically eligible means they must be passing all classes each week.  The following steps will be followed involving eligibility: 
    • First Offense:  the student may not compete in any contests for that week, but may practice with the team.
    • Second Offense:  the student may not practice or compete in any contest for that week.
    • Third Offense:  the student will be dismissed from the team.
    • Remember if your student is involved in a club or sport, they must be in attendance at school for at least 4 periods in order to practice or play in a game.  The absence should be excused by a note from the dentist, doctor, etc.

AGENDAS:  If your student has misplaced his or her agenda, there are extras in the office that may be purchased for $8.00.

LOCKERS - Remember to lock your lockers!  Mrs. Davis feels sad when students’ items go missing, but if you locked your locker, you would not have an issue.  This also includes your gym locker.

LEAVING CAMPUS - Students are NOT allowed to leave campus and then return to get on the bus.  Mrs. Davis is responsible for your student from the moment they leave your house until the moment they get home. For example, they are not allowed to run to Casey’s and then come back on campus. If they are hurt crossing Route 72, Mrs. Davis is responsible.  Any student that does, this will not be allowed to get on the bus.

BIRD BUCKS:  Have you earned any bird bucks?  There is always time to get caught being GREAT!  Use them in the  BIRD BUCK STORE.  Make sure your name is on them.

LIBRARY:  Remember to bring in your Box Tops to the library.  It helps us purchase items to make the MJHS library GREAT!!
