Parents, Students and Friends –

 Thank You PTA for Providing Audio Enhancement in Classrooms

Thank you to our PTA members and everyone that contributed to our March Madness fundraiser.  The PTA was able to donate money to install three new audio enhancement sound systems in three classrooms! The addition of audio and sound equipment greatly enhances the classroom experience for students and teachers and the PTA is grateful for everyone’s support that helped make this donation possible.

 Last Call for Library Books

Parents and Students: Please be on the lookout for any books belonging to SFJHS Library. If your student has a fine or overdue book, they were notified with a reminder slip. We have a great school library, with a wonderful collection. Please help us keep it that way by returning all books. Thank you so much for your help. If you have any questions talk to Mrs. Wilson in the library.   

 SFJHS Literary Magazines Published

Mrs. Betts’ 8th grade English honors classes have compiled two literary magazines comprised of 7th, 8th, and 9th grade writing. Students submitted their pieces, and the honors classes compiled the submissions, drew category pages (poetry, short stories, and essays), and found computer generated art that supported the writing. The magazines are ready to be shared with the public. Look for them in dentists’ offices, doctors’ offices, and businesses where patrons may have to wait for appointments.

 Lunch Accounts and Other School Fees and Fines

The school year is quickly winding down and with that we remind parents to make sure that your student’s lunch balance is caught up and kept current.  Also, please make sure any outstanding balances for school fees or fines are taken care of ASAP with Mrs. Hall in the front office.  PLEASE BE AWARE that in order to receive a year book on May 24th and to qualify for Lagoon all outstanding balances owed must be paid in full. Your help in this regard is greatly appreciated.
