PJHS Parents,

The entire faculty would like to thank the PTA for the tremendous Lupper(as Principal Swenson respectfully puts it)that they prepared for the faculty before Parent Teacher Conferences last week. It was awesome!

PJHS "Meets The Composer"

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 02/17/2016 - 17:17

Band students are typically situated at the end of a long process of making music. They are issued a clean printed page of black symbols on white background and then begin the process of decoding the symbols in order to create sound. The audience that hears the band’s interpretation is yet one more step—and the last step--away from what starts with a composer.

A composer is a person who writes music, especially as a professional occupation.

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.

Mr. Blake Mortensen
