Jr High Update

Dear students and parents,

Our start to the new school year is fast approaching and we here in the Jr. High are excited to get started with the new school year. We are happy to welcome two new dedicated teachers to our Jr. High faculty. Mr. Bradlin will be the 6th grade homeroom, Jr High Math, and 6th and 8th grade Religion teacher. Ms. Cordero will be the 7thgrade homeroom, 7th Religion, and 7th & 8th Language Arts teacher.

Summer Reading

All students in the Jr. High are encouraged to read over the summer in order to build good readers. To assist parents and students with the selection of appropriate materials, links were placed on the St. Jerome Jr. High page and on EdZone. There are no test/projects with summer reading for the 7th and 8th graders; however, I ask that all students complete reading logs for each book they have read and at least one plot outline from one of the books that is on the reading log.

For your convenience, I have placed the links below in the event that you have not been able to locate the summer reading lists, plot outline, and reading log.
