A message from Principal Casperson

As I mentioned in the last home newsletter we were working to compile various data points about Juneau-Douglas High School into one easy reference file for you to access should you want to take a peek at how we are performing in various areas.  Our intent is to have items located in one central location, AND next to the previous year’s archived file for comparison. It is a priority for us, in our continuous improvement process, to engage all of you in reviewing data, asking questions, and helping guide us as we make adjustments in our teaching and learning annually.  For the most part we were able to include the same data documents from year to year, allowing for apples-to-apples comparison. The notable exception in this year’s file is the newly released System for School Success Report. For ease we have included our JDHS report and a one page overview of the new system. To access our files please cut and paste this link into a web browser:

3… 23…17…

As I write this I am reminded that the days until the end of this semester are dwindling.  There are 3 days remaining until Thanksgiving Break, and only 23 days remaining until the completion of this semester.  Many students have semester based classes so that means that there are a TOTAL of 17 class periods left (with our flexed bell schedule).  That 17 includes the final exam. In short, this is the time to remain focused in academic successes, which can often be challenging with less light, and what appear to be shorter days.  Take a moment, as you can, to check in with your student or students, reminding them of the importance of each transcripted course, in the pursuit of both a diploma and post-secondary goals.  If your student needs a little nudge encourage them to attend the next Super Saturday, on December 8th, from 9-Noon.  With 23 days remaining we want to remain laser-focused on school and academic proficiency.
