    Dear Parents:

         First and foremost, we are extremely pleased to announce that our new 2016 School Performance Score (SPS) that is based in part on how well our students perform on their annual i-LEAP & LEAP exams and how many “HS” credits our former students earn in 9th grade has increased from  a C to a “B”. Our new score of 88.4 was 6.7 pts. higher than last year’s score of 81.7.

       We are very, very proud of our “teachers and students” for having worked diligently each day to help ensure we regained our B” rating. Additionally, we  have now joined BJHS as the only other (6-8) middle school in St. Mary Parish to be rated a “B” by our Louisiana Dept. of Education. Thank you parents for continuing to support our teachers as they endeavor to “best prepare your children to earnbasic or abovetest scores and “earn passing grades” that will allow them to be promoted to the next grade level. We appreciate youyour children and our teachers.  

        Also, as we approach the end of the 2nd grading session on Dec. 21st, please continue to encourage your children to attend school daily as they try to earn passing grades.Report Cards” will be given out on January 5th. Good luck to all of our students during the final 15-days of our 2nd grading session.

         Furthermore, kudos are being given to “Mary Frances Vincent” for having been selected as our MCJHS 8th grade student-of-the-year. Everyone wishes her the best of luck as she now begins preparing to compete on the District level. I reiterate kudos to Mary for this prestigious honor!

       We are also very thankful to each parent that has volunteered their services to help us around campus (i.e., attending our PTO mtgs., chaperoning activities, selling concessions, providing luncheon treats for the teachers or monitoring student behavior during the lunch sessions to allow the faculty to enjoy their Thanksgiving luncheon, etc.). Our next PTO/PATHS mtg. will be on (Tues.) January 10th from 6:00 – 6:30 p.m. and your attendance is always appreciated. Also, our annual Family Movie Night will be on (Thurs.) January 26th from 6-8:00 p.m. We hope to see as many parents and students as possible to watch a family movie together. 

         In closing, on behalf of everyone here @ MCJHS, we hope that you will have an enjoyable Christmas & New Year holiday season. Moreover, a reminder that school dismisses @ 12:30 p.m. on (Wed.) Dec. 21st for the holiday break. Also, school will re-open for the Spring semester on (Thurs.) Jan. 5th after the holidays. Please give us a call @ 384-5922 if you have any school related questions.

     

    Sincerely, Ken W. Holmes-principal

    For Staff:  "Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like fingerprints.  It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming."   -Jim Rohn

  • NCSAM (Week 3) and Digital Citizenship Week

    Posted by Susan Dupre at 10/19/2016

    As part of this observation, parents are encouraged to "Take the Pledge" to empower kids to use technology safely, responsibly, and respectfully, thus providing young people with the digital citizenship skills they need to thrive in today's world.

    Here's the pledge: I pledge to empower my kids to use technology safely, responsibly, and respectfully. Together, we will provide young people with the digital citizenship skills they need to thrive in today's world.

    Why take the pledge?  While technology provides increased opportunities for students, there is also a responsibility to teach them about technology's pitfalls so they can avoid them.  If we don't teach our kids, who will?
