From the Principal's Desk

Parents, Guardians, and Supporters of JTC:

Happy spring! It is also time for our annual March of Dimes campaign.  We encourage students to put their spare change in boxes located in the cafeteria and main office to support babies! March of Dimes exists to prevent birth defects and premature birth.  This is a great cause and we encourage all staff, students, and parents to participate.

STAAR testing will be on April 1 and 2 for 7th and 8th grade students. 8th graders who take regular Pre-Algebra will take their state math test on Tuesday, April 1. All 8th graders will take the state reading test on Wednesday. 8th graders who take Algebra I will take their EOC test in May. Remember all 8th graders must pass their STAAR tests to be promoted to 9th grade. 7th graders will be taking the writing test on April 1st and 2nd.  STAAR testing will continue on April 22 and 23 with 8th graders taking Science and Social studies. 6th and 7th graders will be taking Math and Reading tests on these dates.

We have a lot of events on the calendar for April.  Our Spring Dance is Friday, April 4 from 6-8pm. Cost is $5.  The first bad weather make up day is Monday, April 7. Remember we WILL have school on this day.  Choice of subject forms for 8th graders are due on Friday, April 11.  Extended day ends on Thursday, April 17.  Last day of the 5th grading period is Thursday, April 17.  Student and staff holiday will be Friday, April 18.   Viking Fun Run is Saturday, April 26 from 10:00-12:00 noon.
