The 2019 - 2020 school year here at CJHS has begun and there are a ton of things happening here both in the classroom and on the athletic field. Teachers are getting to know their new students and are setting up expectations with students to help them thrive this year. I have seen some really great get-to-know-you and team building activities in the classrooms so far. Baseball, Softball, and Cross-Country have all begun their seasons and are all seeing some pretty awesome results in their first contests. We also have a large number of students participating in our JFL program this year. I encourage you to get out to a game and support our junior high athletes!

Coming up on September 5th we will have an open house, giving families a chance to connect with their child’s teachers. It is a great opportunity for a face to face get together and for your student to take you through the building so you can get a glimpse into what life is like here at CJHS.

Another way you can see what life is like here is to get connected on Twitter. You can follow me at @MrPeckCJHS and the Junior High at @CJHS_Maroons. We try to highlight the amazing people our students and staff are and I encourage you to follow along and join in. You never know, you might even win one of my many weekly contests! Also, if you see anything awesome in the district worth sharing on social media, please do so using the hashtag #MaroonPride.

I am really looking forward to diving into the school year with my staff, students, and community in general. It is my honor to serve our community, so if you have any questions or concerns as the year progresses, please feel free to call the office, email me, or pop in to see me here at the junior high.

With Maroon Pride,

Mr. Jim Peck
