Dec. 5

Good Morning Jaguars!  I’m Madison and Corinne with the Jag News Team.


Today is Tuesday, Dec. 5th. Please stand for the pledge.


Attention 7th and 8th grade students: If you would like to be a TA for the Spring semester, stop by counseling and pick up an application. They are due by December 8th. 7th graders - if you have not taken Health and Computers, you are not eligible to be a TA until next year. 


We are super excited about this month's Super Saturday. Super Saturday is a great way to clear up your absences and also have some fun. We will be offering multiple sessions for you to choose from this week on December 9.

  1. Vaca High will have their Drill Team here teaching technique and a mini routine for those who are interested in learning more about this great high school program.
  2. Or you can learn about the History of Mexico! We will be reading some primary sources and newspaper articles, watching a documentary, and talking about how Mexico came to be the country it is today. We will also look at Mexico’s relationship with the United States and how that has changed over time, including how people talk about Mexico right now in 2017! So if you’re interested in learning more about the country that used to own the land you’re standing on right now, come on over!
  3. Also available for you will be an interactive exploration of Chinese tombs that will include video clips and the creating replicas of some artifacts.
  4. Are some of you worried about getting your grades up before the break? Well we even have an option for you. Come on down and get some extra help with that missing work or upcoming projects that just seem to be weighing you down.
  5. There is also a super crafty option. Believe it or not, but Christmas is just around the corner! We will help you get in the holiday season by teaching you how to sew adorable felt tree ornaments. Supplies will be provided, all you need is patience!

Sign up with Mrs. Thiessen or in the front office as soon as you can, space will be limited and supplies need to be prepared. See you there!


Remember all Dance Drill Team Members that practices will begin today and run Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. We will also be practicing at Super Saturday for the upcoming basketball season.


Construction Update:  Today you will find A Hall classes back into their permanent classrooms, and H hall classes into temporary housing.  Our Music classes are now out in the P wing, as well as Mrs. Maillard, Mrs. Frazier and Mrs. Wylie.  If you are confused where to go, ask a campus monitor.


There will be an anime club meeting today after school. There will be no meeting next Tuesday, 12/12. We will be discussing our end of the semester party. Please come by!


Have a great day!
