Parents,

 

Athletic fees at the junior high have been the same price for all sports for the last eight years.  This spring we looked at each sport and calculated what it costs the school to run each program (league dues, assignor and official fees, equipment, uniforms, awards, and end of season celebrations) for the past three years.   In doing so, we have found the cost of most of our programs far exceed the amount of money collected in athletic fees.  So out of necessity, we will need to increase our athletic fees beginning the 2018-19 sports season.  In an effort to be most equitable, we have established new fees to the amount necessary to sustain each specific sport, so fees will differ from sport to sport.  Listed below is the new sports fee schedule for the junior high:  

 

Football:  $125.00

Volleyball:  $77.00

Cross Country:  $43.00

 

Boys' Basketball:  $105.00

Girls' Basketball:  $105.00

 

Wrestling:  $95.00

 

Softball:  $100.00

Track and Field:  $55.00

This year’s Winter Dance is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 1st from 6:00-8:00 PM, and the charge will be $5.00 per student.  While this is not a formal dance, most of our students take the opportunity to dress up more than usual; most of the girls wear dresses, and most of the boys wear slacks and a collared shirt (boys may not wear shorts or hats).  Our normal dress code applies: “Clothing must not bare traditionally private parts of the body, must cover everything from chest to mid-thigh, and shoes must be worn at all times.”  Additionally, “clothing may not be sheer, strapless, backless, and undergarments shall not be intentionally visible.”  If students show up in an outfit that does not meet the District dress code, they will not be allowed into the dance and will be asked to change before entering.  If students have a question about their outfit, they can ask Mr. Watkins or Mrs. Johnson prior to the dance.  This dance, like all of our dances, is for current CMJH students only; guests are not allowed.  The dance will end promptly at 8:00, so please be on time to pick up your child.  Please know that this dance will be attended by 300-400 students, so the traffic at pick-up time will be very heavy.  Please have a plan with your child about where you will pick him/her up.

The first day of exams, Dec. 18th, will be a full day of school.  Dec. 19th, 20th, and 21st will be half days where students will only take two final exams per day; students can enter the building at 8:35 and are finished with their day at 11:35.  The specific exam schedule can be found on the CMJH website.  Some important reminders about final exams:

            *In ACCESS on Dec. 11th, we will have students create a “Final Exam Preparation Plan” to help them in budgeting their time and planning their study sessions.  Ask your child to see his/her plan.

            *Most, if not all, teachers will be providing students with study guides and/or reviews to help guide their studying and help them focus on the most important material.

            *While it typically creates additional stress and angst for our students, it is sometimes unavoidable that students miss some final exams.  We reserve Dec. 22nd as a make-up day if students are sick on one of the other final exam days.  If you know your child will be absent for his/her exams, please contact your child’s teachers and me to set up an early exam or a make-up exam.

This year, our annual food drive will be from Nov. 9th-Nov. 15th.  Care and Share is a food bank in Southern Colorado that distributes food to over 300 agencies; these agencies then give the food directly to people in need.  CMJH Student Council and their sponsors, Ms. Amy Bales and Ms. Beth Gorab, spearhead the food drive.  They will be conducting an ACCESS class competition, awarding prizes to the top three donating classes.  Canned goods and non-perishable items are greatly appreciated, but monetary donation have the greatest impact on our community.  In fact, for every $1 donated, Care and Share can purchase approximately 10 lbs. of food which is the equivalent of 8 meals.  CMJH, year after year, is one of the top donation raising middle level schools in the area.  Let’s do it again this year!
