A message from Principal Casperson

It is that time of year where we are working furiously to wrap the school year up and are tirelessly working to plan for next year.  That means that in our cycle of teaching and learning there are a myriad of things to check off of our lists, and to convert for the 2019-2020 school year.  As you create, and review, the year-end items for your student we ask that you emphasize, and perhaps even overemphasize, being present each and every day, working to meet academic expectations, and making a final push to ensure success. 

The final grades each semester impact each subsequent semester.  If your student is also a student-athlete, their grades determine whether they meet Alaska School Activities Association (ASAA) eligibility and/or Juneau School District eligibility.  Grade point average, as well as raw number of classes passed make a difference.  In the second semester academic grades also impact course placement for the upcoming year.  Many of our courses require students to demonstrate proficiency (i.e. a C or better) to move on to the next level.  Regardless of the courses your student chose in January and February there is an additional review that will occur prior to fall schedules.  These are two of many talking points you can use to help guide your student in these last six weeks.  One last note - if your student has an adjustment they wish to make (with your approval) they should make an appointment now to see their school counselor.  

We know that parent/home engagement is critical to student success!  As we focus on continually improving our school one of our ongoing areas for planning involves you.  We want to make sure that our partnership includes ways to authentically engage you in our school community.  If you have ideas, thoughts and/or wishes please send us a note.  Parent forum topic?  Idea on how to harness parent volunteer energy?  Thoughts on how we can utilize you as resources or subject area expertise?  We know that together we can work to make the JDHS experience the best it can be for all our 600+ students.  Thank you for taking the time to send us your ideas.
