A message from Principal Casperson

Do you ever wonder what it is that teachers and support staff do on Inservice days?  We just finished up the third and fourth days of Inservice that we have scheduled this year, with two full days of training in AVID instructional strategies, Super PLCs (professional learning communities), Autism, and Restorative Practices.  These days are organized to support the professional learning of our employees, and are critical time for professional collaboration across secondary schools.  It is always the goal that the training and learning from these days is put into application in all of our classrooms, yielding an increase in student engagement, student achievement and life-long learning.  Of course we know that most high school students don’t mind getting a longer weekend every so often…


This newsletter marks the end of the second mid-quarter, which means that we have officially completed 62 instructional days.  Looking ahead we have just 19 days until our final exams, and 22 days until the end of the first semester and our winter break.  Please make a note that the final exams will be held on December 19th, 20th and 21st.  On our exam days we offer a different bell schedule to maximize exam time and minimize student stress.  

The schedule is listed below for your reference.

December 19th                         December 20th                         December 21st

E, 3, L, 6, E                             E, 2, L, 5, E                             E, 1, L, 4, E


E = Enrichment  #1     9:15 – 10:20

 Exam Period #1         10:25 – 12:00

 L= Lunch                    12:00 – 12:55

Exam Period #2          1:00 – 2:35

Enrichment #2            2:40 – 3:45

Thank you for expecting your student to finish strong, and, as always for supporting Juneau-Douglas High School!
