A message from Principal Casperson
We have more celebrations for our Juneau-Douglas High School community. First, we want to give a big shout-out to Sadie Tuckwood, a JDHS ninth grader who was named the Gatorade Player of the Year for Cross-Country Running. This is a huge honor for Sadie and for our cross-country running team. We also want to celebrate Kevin McAllister and McLain Sidmore, our National Merit Scholarship finalists for the 2016-2017 school year. Juneau-Douglas High School is proud to have semi-finalists every school year, students who are representative of the high caliber qualifications set forth by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. Finally, we are happy to announce that our Interact Homeless Awareness Sleep Out was recently chosen as a Distinguished Finalist for the 2017 Prudential Service Award. Service, scholarship and JDHS pride are all common elements in this month’s celebrations!
JDHS is also pleased to announce that we are partnering with Juneau Police Department for a Year of Kindness and there are several initiatives that underway. A variety of student groups will be conducting activities to promote citizenship and kindness in general. This is a great opportunity to remind ourselves that a little bit of kindness goes a long way in making our community a healthy, happy place.
We are about halfway through our course selection process for the 2017-2018 school year, and that includes welcoming our incoming Crimson Bears to JDHS. Course description books are available on our website and we cannot encourage you enough to spend some time with your high school student (or students!) talking about their four-year plans and post-secondary goals. Our elective areas are varied, and the opportunity to sample various endorsement areas is now! If you have questions please reach out to your student’s academic counselor, or to their current teachers. We want to help each and every student make sure that they are choosing the right courses to meet their individual needs.
