JTHS Principal’s Email – Oct. 23

Dear Students and Parents, 
As we move further into October and as the end of the semester gets closer, we want to continue to stress the importance of attending and participating in physical education classes. Our physical education courses provide students with various opportunities to address nutrition, physical fitness, mental health, and social-emotional well-being. There are many benefits to full and active participation in physical education classes that go beyond general assumptions surrounding exercise, including improved judgment, reduced risk of depression, stress relief, improved confidence and self-esteem, enhanced peer relationships, experience in setting goals, and self-discipline.  We appreciate your continued support in encouraging students to attend and actively participate in JT physical education classes. 
Important school news is below.

We encourage students to sign up for our new Virtual Tutoring Program.  Free tutoring is provided by JTHS teachers during convenient hours, such as nights and weekends. 

Scholarship Bulletin  
We encourage students and parents to frequently view our scholarship bulletin, an online resource that provides students with the opportunity to apply for scholarships that can help pay for college or post-secondary options.
