A message from Principal Casperson
Well here we are – it’s 2017 and the second semester is underway. As many of you know we are just weeks away from 8th grade information nights and then course selection for all students for the 2017-2018 school year. Our course selection nights begin with our rising seniors (the class of 2018!) on February 1st & 2nd. Rising juniors will be here February 15th and 16th and rising sophomores will schedule on February 28th and March 1st. All course selection nights will happen in the JDHS library, beginning promptly at 5pm. We look forward to having you here.
2017 is also the Year of Kindness, a campaign the Juneau Police Department is championing. JDHS is partnering with this campaign in many ways, hoping to impact systemic change in our community one kind act at a time. Please watch our bulletin, our webpage or Mac the Bear’s twitter for opportunities to commit random, and not so random, acts of kindness J While you’re at it, like us on Facebook!
A couple of celebrations: Our very own Cody Weldon is the state wrestling champion for his 220lb weight class. While Cody wrestled for the combined team under Thunder Mountain High School’s staff we want to make sure that we recognize his accomplishment as a Crimson Bear. We also want to recognize the recent news that the Juneau School District made the College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Honor Roll – one of 433 school districts in the US and Canada! This is the result of an increase in access to AP courses for a broader number of students, and maintaining/improving the rate at which AP students earned scores of 3 or higher on an AP exam. This recognition combined with our previous report to the school board recognizing JDHS’ college readiness successes have us feeling very proud to be Crimson Bears.
