Dear CJHS Families,
On behalf of our entire staff at Clarkston Junior High School, it is my pleasure to welcome you and your students to the 2019 -2020 school year. It is my hope that all our CJHS families have had the opportunity to enjoy the summer, and are as excited as we are to continue our learning journey. As is normal, expectations for deep student learning are high, and we looking forward to cultivating our thinkers and learners starting on the first half day of school, August 26.
I feel very privileged every day to walk the halls and see great accomplishments by students and staff. The growth from the beginning of the year to the end is substantial. Our teachers challenge our students to learn more and to dig deeper into the content they are learning. We are developing a culture where thinking is expected of all students, and respected by each and every member of our building. As this culture continues to grow, students will not only learn from their teachers, but each other as well.
Being involved in an activity of some sort at our school is a great way for students to feel connected, which tends to help them have more success in the classroom. I encourage your student to take advantage of as many opportunities as possible to get involved. The clubs, athletics teams, and fine arts programs here provide a great experience and wonderful chance to be a part of something fun and exciting with fellow students in our school community.
Again, I would like to extend a welcome to all our parents and students to CJHS for the 2019- 2020 school year. As our tradition of excellence continues, it would not be possible without the involvement and support you provide for CJHS. The better cooperation we have between school and home will only lead to greater success for our students; and this is our top priority. If you have any questions regarding any facet of our school, please call our main office at (248) 623-5600 and we will assist you.
In an effort to promote a strong start to the school year and a good understanding of the expectations of your child's academic program, I would like to invite all parents to our evening Open House Parent Curriculum Night that is scheduled for Monday, September 9 from 6pm-8pm. We will begin at 6pm with the 2018-2019 Annual Report in the LGI.
Mr. Adam Kern
