Email Update- December 2, 2017

Posted on: December 2, 2017
Some important information from LJHS!
Washington DC Trip Dates-  Due to circumstance beyond our control, the dates of the Washington DC trip for 8th grades have changed.   Students will now travel to Washington DC March 7th through March 10th.  Students received a letter on Thursday during homeroom advising them of the change in plans.   If you need to cancel your trip due to a conflict with these days, please call the travel company at 937-439-0032.  If your child is still able to attend the trip, please plan to attend one of these mandatory parent meetings:
Thursday, December 14th-  5:30pm at the Old LJHS Cafeteria (Current Berry Building)
Saturday, December 16th-  8:00am at the Old LJHS Cafeteria (Current Berry Building)
If you have questions or concerns please email Ms. Vaughan at or call her at 513-934-5312.

PTO Survey-  The LJHS PTO is looking for feedback on ways to spend money earned through the Warrior Walk.  This fundraiser was very successful and the PTO would like your input into making the best use of the funds that are available.  Click Here for Survey

MAP Testing-  MAP testing in Reading and Math will be next week (Dec. 4-8).  LJHS values the data received from our periodic MAP testing. Teachers use the data to support instructional planning and the data is also used as a factor in placement for accelerated classes. Please encourage your student do give their best effort on these assessments.
Future Communications and ProgressBook- In an effort to get info to you more efficiently, we need you to add your email to your ProgressBook account. Examples of communications you might receive via email will be: school newsletters, school events/announcements, etc.
