As we knock on spring’s door and look forward to the beauty of what spring offers, we are reminded that it also opens the door to the third trimester of school and the opportunity for a strong finish for our students. The staff and I invite you to attend our Warrior Pride Night on March 19, 2019. This evening is dedicated to sharing the amazing things that are happening at Alta Loma Junior High School. The evening begins at 5:45 with a presentation in the amphitheater. Classes will be open for visits starting at 6:00 pm. The evening promises to be a time to view the great work that our students are producing. We look forward to seeing you on March 19th.
This has been another outstanding year with our partnership with PTSA. I would like to take a moment to thank 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 thank all of our members for their continued support of our school.
Please take note of the important dates included in this newsletter that will impact both our 7th and 8th grade students. We are preparing our 8th graders for their next step which is high school and getting our 7th grade students thinking about the offerings available for them in 8th grade. We are also welcoming our 6th grade students coming from our feeder schools. March is a very busy month.
As we begin this final trimester, we expect students to make it their best yet! Eighth grade students in particular need to be concerned regarding grades and promotion. Students must maintain a 1.6 GPA and cannot receive an F grade in the final trimester to participate in end of the year activities. Please make every effort to check grades on Illuminate to ensure your student is on track for a strong finish. 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 thank you for your continued support.
