Dear Middle School Family,

The energy is always high for the three weeks between Thanksgiving and Winter Break. Please encourage your student to stay on top of their work and make good use of their time at school. We don't assign specific homework in Communications and Humanities, but if they don't use their time wisely at school, they're going to fall behind on their assignments. Please check in regularly with Jupiter Ed and with your student about how they're doing.

As of this week, we are deep into our Global Studies projects. Students are researching people, empires, and ideologies from Ancient Civilizations in an effort to find lessons from history to answer the question "How should humans live together?" Next week, students will put together short powerpoint presentations. Presentations will happen the week before Winter Break.

There's no time to fall behind! And there is PLENTY of time for them to get their work done in class.

HELP: Weekly laundry
We desperately need a family to volunteer to bring home and wash the rags every week that we use to wash the tables. Pretty please!

IHS Information for 8th Grade Students

If you have 8th grade students interested in Eugene IHS for the 2019-2020 school year, the 4J School Choice Lottery for in-district students opens January 1st and the deadline is January 31st. We will be holding parent information nights in January. All students interested in enrolling in Eugene IHS must apply through the 4J School Choice Lottery. Students currently enrolled in Eugene IHS do not need to re-apply unless you move outside of the 4J attendance area.

Best wishes,
Jon and Maizzy
