Dear ALJHS Families,
As we complete a successful school year, I am thrilled to be able to close out my first year at ALJH with the staff and your students. I have found this staff to be dedicated, hard-working, and caring. They are a group of individuals who go above and beyond and always put children first. The students are equally as impressive. It has been my pleasure to watch them flourish academically and grow in their own special interests and abilities. Thank you for sending us such a wonderful group of students and for your continued support. I do believe that Alta Loma Junior High is one of the best schools in the state. I would encourage you to continue to look for opportunities this summer to cultivate your students interests and continuing in their learning.
May is a busy month with student activities. We encourage you to visit our web-site often for activity updates. In particular, parents of 8th graders need to pay special attention to end of the year events which includes promotion activities. We have been receiving several calls regarding tickets for promotion. Our amphitheater allows only four seats per family (distribution determined by family). Additional classroom seats to view the ceremony via broadcast are available; however, securing additional seats requires a phone call to the office.
I would be amiss if I didn’t take a moment to thank our PTSA for their generosity of time, support, and leadership. PTSA supports many activities and we appreciate their dedication to the enrichment of our programs for students. We have exceeded every fundraising opportunity that was initiated this year. We want to thank outgoing PTSA members, Allison Roehl, Sharon Brown, and Shirley Lafrenz for their commitment to our school and PTSA for the last two years. And finally, we congratulate Honorary Service Award recipients, Cindy Scheidemantle and Chita Johnson.
We ask that you continue to encourage your child to set goals for themselves and to strive to achieve their personal best. We believe that ALJH is an outstanding school with an incredible staff, hardworking students, and dedicated parents. We wish our 8th graders much success in high school and we thank you for your continued support. Have a wonderful summer.
