Course Verification Sheets

SLJH is still missing quite a few course verification sheets that help determine classes for next year.  Be sure they are turned in to your 2nd period teacher no later than Friday.  Only if a reprint is needed stop by the Counseling Office for another copy. Some may be in backpacks so please look. Remember these only verify what was input into the computer at the time of course selection and are not guaranteed schedules for next year. They are an opportunity to make changes to what was input originally. Forms will not be taken past 3pm on Friday, May 23, 2014. After Friday, what is in the computer will stand.

SLJH Awards Ceremonies

We are looking forward to seeing you on Thursday, June 5th, as we celebrate the hard work of our students and staff.  It has been a fantastic year.  Come join us as we acknowledge their hard work.  Please review the schedule posted on our website.  Also, please park in the rear of the building and report straight to the library.  You will be escorted to the cafeteria for the program.  We hope you will leave your child in school for the entire day, but if you choose to take them with you, please report to the main office to sign them out officially.

SLJH Exam Schedule

We hope you have had time to review our end of semester Exam Schedule that is posted on our website.  It is very important that kids are present for their exams.  Once teachers are off contract, report card grades will not be adjusted until August.  If you have an emergency, please contact Dr. Medrano directly to make arrangements for make ups after June 15th.  Exams will not be given early.

Yearbooks are HERE!!

We still have some unclaimed yearbooks that have not been picked up by their owners. Please remind your student to pick up their yearbook from Mrs. Frazier’s room (1170). Students MUST have their student ID to pick up their yearbook. If your child has lost their ID, a new one can be purchased in the library for $3.
Extra yearbooks are still available while supplies last! The cost is $65 (cash or check made out to SLJH). Your child should see Mrs. Frazier in room 1170 to purchase one of the extra yearbooks.

SLAM Camp coming soon!

The SLJH Math Department will host the first annual Seven Lakes Adventures in Math (SLAM) Camp for incoming 6th graders on August 12 & 13.  This fun 3-hour camp will give your student a glimpse into a middle school math class. Each session will be led by four Seven Lakes Junior High math teachers and will have a maximum of 80 students per session (20 students per teacher).   All sessions will have the same content, so you need only attend one session.   The cost is $5, payable in person at the time of registration in the SLJH front office from 9AM to 2PM until June 5, or in the rotunda on May 26 from 3 to 5 PM.

Attention Rising 9th Graders
9th Grade Off Campus PE

A request from SLHS and OTHS: Any 8th grade student wishing to do Off Campus PE as a 9th grader must turn forms in on the appropriate high school campus in August. Please do not turn them in early or at SLJH. High schools are asking all forms be turned directly into them in August. This affects very few of our students but wanted to be sure we got the work out.
