Weekly announcemnts 1/16

January 15

Good evening Viking Families,

This is Mr. Lewis, JHS 9th Grade Principal and Principal for Instruction for Jackson Pathways High School with this week’s high school announcements. I am hopeful that you have had a restful weekend and are looking forward to celebrating MLK day tomorrow.

As a reminder, school will not be in attendance tomorrow, however we hope that you can reflect, celebrate and commit an act of service to celebrate the legacy of Dr. King and his contribution to our country’s greatness.

Tomorrow, Monday January 16th, Jackson High School is hosting our second annual Martin Luther King Basketball Tournament. There will be 3 games played in the JHS Fieldhouse. The JHS JV team will tip off against Lansing Everett at 3:00 with Wayne Memorial Varsity Playing Farmington Hills at 5:00 pm and our Varsity Vikings will be taking on Lansing Everetts Varsity At 7. This event is sponsor by our local chapter of My Brother’s Keepers and at 6:30 we will be honoring Mr. Otis and Mrs. Shirley Brown with The Jackson Community Excellence Award for their service and commitment to the students of Jackson. Please come out to support our Vikings and help us celebrate this year’s honoraries.

Parent Teacher conference will be held this Thursday from 5:30 to 8:00 pm in the JHS Fieldhouse. It is critically important for you to be connected to your child’s educational progress. Some of your student’s classes have changed and they do have different instructors so this is a great opportunity to strengthen our partnership on behalf of your students' academic success.

Consistently being on time is the product of proper planning, personal discipline,
and a respect for other people's time.

We need your help encouraging your young person to be on time for school and for each class. Doors open at 7:00 am and classes begin at 7:20. Students have five minutes to get to each class. Their backpacks are to remain in their lockers for the duration of the day. There is only a need to carry their Chromebook in the case. In this case they can house their notebooks and folders if needed. Students who consistently remain in the hall after the tardy bell, will participate in lunch detentions, parent meetings, and/or IST, our in-school tutoring room where students are doing their classwork that is sent to them. If you would not like your child to participate in the aforementioned activities, please stress the importance of them being punctual to school and classes. Each time your young person is marked tardy or absent in a class, you will receive a call in the evening from our automated system letting you know. You can also log into PowerSchool to see exactly which class your student was late to or missed. We understand extenuating circumstances and work with all students and families in those situations. Be sure to contact your respective grade office if such a need arises. We thank you in advance!
