A Message from Mrs. Gochenour, 7-12 Principal

Inserted Image

Greetings, Panthers~

Welcome to February! Congratulations - we've made it just over half way! While there have been struggles, I feel confident that we are on a path toward a greater sense of normalcy. I would like to thank our students, parents, and community members for all of their support during these challenging times. 

February is always very busy with extracurricular activities and students usually get a little overwhelmed with all of the practices, competitions, and school work. As we continue to move forward, we encourage parents to be vigilant in monitoring student grades and attendance through JMC. Let's make sure our students have a great second semester! 

Crazy as it sounds we are beginning to develop our Course Description Book for next year. We plan to have this out to parents and students after the March school board meeting. We will have several new course options for students, so please be sure to read through the Description Book with your child and talk about the courses they wish to register for. A current program that will be expanded next year is our Work-based Learning Program. Mr. Thompson will be our coordinator and he will work with seniors and local businesses/industry to get students out into authentic job placements. As we get closer to registration, we will be sending out more information about this program and the opportunities that it will provide for your child. 

Seniors, please make sure you are aware of scholarship due dates. The school

year will be over before you know it. Don’t miss out on a scholarship because you

missed the deadline. Talk to Mrs. Krueger to get assistance with this process. 

Senior Parents: If you child is planning on attending college next year, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) needs to be completed. The website can be found at https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa. If you have questions about the process, please contact Mrs. Krueger to help guide you and your child through the application process. The earlier you get this done, the better chance of federal financial aid for your child.

As always, please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns.
