February 2, 2016 Weekly Newsletter

Mr. Blake Mortensen

PJHS Parents,

  As a school we are trying to encourage students to be to class on time. The biggest reason for being on time is not to interrupt the class once it has started. When students are late it distracts from the most important part of the lesson, the first 5-7 minutes! As students are late they are missing that valuable instruction and could possibly be behind or lost the rest of the period. Parents, please encourage your students to be on time and ready with all materials for class.

  Just to review, the detentions for tardies can be made up on Monday or Wednesday after school in the detention/skills room. Detention can be made up on the same mornings in Mrs. Wagner’s room. This is a good way to get math help and detention credit at the same time. The last option is to do lunch detention with Mrs. Renzello, students will need to get in touch with her if not called down. Detention days for the 1st lunch are Monday and Wednesday and the students on 2nd lunch can do detentions on Tuesday and Thursday. We appreciate your help in encouraging your students to get their detention time taken care of.
