Hello TJ Community:
It has been a great first half of the year. Students are working hard and learning a great deal in preparation for high school and beyond. We had a record number of students receive a Gold Card during the first quarter. We had 299 students earn a 3.33 GPA or higher to receive the award. We also have seen great improvement in the number of students meeting the 2.0 GPA criteria for promotion. We saw a 3% increase in students meeting the criteria as compared to the first quarter of last year. We will continue to work at providing all students the opportunities to improve in their grades and their learning. We want to see this trend continue for the second quarter and beyond.
We have many activities each month to keep the students engaged in the school and help in the learning process. Please make sure you keep yourself up-to-date on school activities. Calendars go home at the start of each month. You can visit the office for a copy if you need a calendar. As always, we appreciate your support and attendance at all school functions. Remember to call or visit the office for assistance of any kind. We are here to serve our students and parents. Our teachers, counselors, office staff and administrative staff are willing to help in any manner for the success of all of our students.
