From the Desk of the Principal:
October 5, 2017
Dear Parent(s) and/or Guardian(s) of 8th Grade Students,
Late Fall and early Winter is an exciting time for our 8th grade students and their parents. We have a series of events occurring that will culminate with the high school registration process in January (more on that will be sent out by MCHS at a later date).
First, I want you to be aware that all CJHS 8th graders took the PSAT 8/9 test on October 4, 2017. PSAT helps students identify areas of academic strength and weakness in three areas important for success in college and the workplace—reading, writing and language, and math. In addition, the PSAT results are used by Minooka Community High School as an additional piece of data to assist in class placement. If you had a child go through CJHS in the past, they would have taken the EXPLORE Test, which was a pre-ACT Test. Last year, Illinois public high schools (including MCHS) switched to the PSAT, thus the reason we switched from Explore in 8th grade to the PSAT 8/9 last year.
Second, the students will take a short field trip to the Grundy Area Vocational Center for a career fair on October 24, 2017. As part of this process, students will take a career interest inventory.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me at (815) 521-3074 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Entering School Each Day
Doors open at 7:35 a.m. each day of school, and class begins at 7:53 a.m. Car riders are to be dropped off at the southeast door (pull up all the way to the very back of the lot, closest to the southeast door), which is available from 7:35-7:50 a.m. each morning. Car riders who arrive after 7:50 a.m., should be dropped off at the main entrance. Bike riders and bus riders will enter the main door each morning. Students who walk to school each day may enter whichever door is most convenient (southeast or main entrance).
Sport Schedules & Directions
This information can be found at the following web address or follow the athletics tab on our webpage.
The supply list link can be found below this message. The lists can also be found under the parent link of the JH school website or on the CSD17 app. For those that ordered school supplies from the Channahon PTO, those supply kits will be available for pick up in the JH office on Step-up Day, 8th Grade Locker Day and the make-up date for each event referenced earlier. We keep our school supply list streamlined, updated and to only ask for needed materials.
