This week's "Leader of the PACK" (Professional Skills, Accountability for self, Care for self and Kindness for others) is awarded to Abbey Williams. Mrs. Williams is loved by everyone in the Junior High. A few "star" comments from our students to Mrs. Williams are: "Thanks for always checking up on everyone when they seem sad"; "You have helped me out through a lot of rough times and I will always be very grateful"; "You do a ton for our school but sometimes don't get recognized for all you do. You always know how to make me laugh and I love going to your room"; "Thank you for being a happy and positive person". Keep up the great work Mrs. Williams!
WJH will be highlighting our "Leader of the PACK" teachers and staff throughout the school year. This will be based on our PACK standards (Professional skills; Accountability for self; Care for self; Kindness to others). To start us off this year, Mr. Heyer was our Leader of the PACK for week #1. A few "star" comments from our students for Mr. Heyer are: "Thank you for keeping our school safe and positive"; "You always make time to talk to students"; "Thanks for being a great leader"; Thank you for greeting us with kindness"; "I like the way you walk around during lunchtime and talk to us" and "you have been my favorite principal so far".

SmartPass ~ WJH will be piloting a new digital hall pass system this year. The digital pass will replace the traditional hall pass, sign out sheets, lanyards, etc. It will also provide Administrators a list of students who are outside the classroom for any reason at any point in time. Students will be able to create or request a pass and it will interruption free for the classroom. The best feature of this new digital pass system is in an emergency, Administration will have real time access and be able to ensure students are where they should be and accounted for.
Madison County Public Health is offering a free Walk-In Immunization Clinic on Tuesday, August 9th from 8:00 - 3:00 and on Friday, August 19th from 8:00 - 12:00. Please see the Junior High Electronic Backpack for more details.
