JHS Announcements

  • Good evening Viking family! This is Mr. Lewis with this week’s high school announcements.

    Thank you all for your patience and understanding as we move forward with our technology updates and bring this trimester to a close. We will keep you updated as to when students will regain access to our network.

    Seniors…your yearbook headshot is due on December 1 instead of November 20.

    Tomorrow students will take exams for first- third hours with dismissal at 10:45am.

    Tuesday students will take exams for hours 4-6 with dismissal at 10:45am.

    Wednesday- Friday there will be no classes due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

    Second trimester will begin on November 28. Report cards will be mailed out on December

    Data from the annual National Youth Tobacco Survey showed that 14.1% of high school students and 3.3% of middle school students said they'd recently used an e-cigarette or other vape product. The CDC's Office on Smoking and Health, said the new numbers show that this year, 2.5 million middle and high school students in the U.S. are reporting vaping. As we work to improve our community and decrease unnecessary traffic in the bathrooms, in addition to referrals to our drug prevention program; JUMP (just understand my potential), we are looking at adding MIP (minors in possession) to students who are caught vaping or in possession of substances when they are on campus. Officer Stallworth will be issuing MIP tickets in the near future. If your young person has a habit that they need help kicking, please reach out to a principal or counselor. We thank you for your help with this concern as we try to help our young people. https://truthinitiative.org/thisisquitting

    Good evening Viking family! This is Mr. Lewis, 9th grade assistant principal and Pathways Principal for Instruction with this week’s high school announcements.

    Just a reminder that blankets are to be left home and backpacks must be secured in lockers upon arrival. School begins at 7:20 am. Thank you to our students and parents/guardians who are getting to school on time. We only have fifteen days of classes left before exams. Encourage your young person to finish strong! Exams will take place November 16th, 17th, and 18th

    Some of our fall sports teams finished up this past week, our Volleyball team competed in district play and ended their season after a valiant effort. The football played Friday night and fell to Mason in the district finals. The womens’ swim team hosted the conference finals and had a great showing. The golf team and our XC teams finished their competitive seasons in late October and we are proud of your athleticism. Our Vikings always compete hard and put forth a Viking effort and we are proud of what you have accomplished.

    Our Jackson High School Theater department will feature the “Legend of Sleepy Hollow”. The show will take place in the JHS auditorium on November 11 and 12 at 7:00p and November 13 at 3:00p. Tickets are $5 at the door.

    The annual JHS Leaf Relief will be held on November 12. Please contact kevin.barkholz@jpsk12.org if you’re interested in having your leaves raked by our students and staff.

    This upcoming Friday is Veterans Day, we want to say thank for your service to our country, community and families. We would like to take time to honor our parents and guardians who are Veterans! If you served in the military, please use this link to give us more information about your service. Thank

    All students in the Classes of 2023- 2026, who currently maintain a 4.0 GPA and have done so over the course of their high school career, including middle school courses in which they received HS credit, have the opportunity to be Valedictorian. The new policy goes into effect for the Class of 2027.

    NEW Valedictorian policy: Class of 2027 and beyond:
    Students must have a cumulative grade point average of 4.0 for all earned credits including high school credits acquired in middle school. The retaking of a course for a better grade will not be used in computation for Valedictorian. Independent studies will not be considered in the computation for selection for Valedictorian.

    Additionally, for the Class of 2027 and beyond, the following must be met:
    Students must take a minimum of six Advanced Placement, Dual Enrollment or Early College courses, in any combination.
    JHS will start a new tradition where Valedictorians and family members will be invited to a luncheon where the valedictorians will be provided an opportunity to present speeches.
