This is the last week of term 1, we encourage parents to sit down with their students and look over their grades and attendance to see what they can do to get grades up this week. Students are encouraged to use Etime to make up missing work, work on test corrections, and understand the material better. We have fantastic teachers that are willing to work with students to help learning and achievement improve, we appreciate parent support in that as well.
Enjoy the time off for Fall Break, no school on Thursday or Friday, October 18th & 19th. See you back at school on Monday!!

Our DFJHS library is a pretty amazing place because we have Mrs. Olson, a pretty amazing librarian! Recently students created this self-standing KEVA Plank bridge that spanned acroos an entrie room! It is great to have a place where student's creativity comes alive. Not only are there cool things to do, but it is a great library full of great books, the evidence for that is that over 1,000 books have already been checked out this school year, we love to read! Thanks Mrs. Olson!!
Parents and students interested in the Especially for Athletes program stayed after school today to hear the founder of the program explain the positive impact that student athletes as well as all students involved in extra-curricular activities can make at their schools.
