  • Welcome 9th Grade

    Greetings New Clippers! I hope the first part of your summer has been wonderful. I know I have enjoyed the slower pace that comes with summer, but I miss the sound of student voices that brings our building to life. As we near the middle part of July, I wanted to take a moment to welcome you to JMB and introduce myself and a few key staff that will be able to help navigate freshman year. I also want to share a few reminders.

    This might just be the last newsletter of the school year. We are down to one full day of school and three early dismissals.

Students are asked to complete the form and select their top three interests for the next school year. https://forms.gle/MFvJW73JmUgLcjj68 Over the summer, we will be working to create student schedules

We still have several days of school left before the summer break. Please remind your student to make sure they are in attendance each day, that they get to class on time, attend all of their classes, and that they are putting forth their best effort academically.

    Some of our students and staff are on the end of the year count down, while others are thinking about all they need to accomplish before the year ends. As I reviewed progress report grades, I noticed a few of our students had some pretty low progress report grades and have some work to do before school ends. If you haven't already done so, be sure to check the family portal and encourage your students to finish strong. For those who have struggled this year, summer school will be at no cost and transportation will be provided. Be sure to check out the details below. We had a great Rising Senior night

    It was nice to end last week with some warmer temperatures. As the temperatures increase, it is important to help students remember that we still have a dress code. Please encourage your student to dress appropriately for school. This includes not having shorts that are too short and no midriffs showing. As we enter this week, it will be the last week in April, and

    I hope you had a wonderful spring break. As we return to school tomorrow, it may be a short week, but there are a lot of great things that will be happening, so be sure to check out the bulletin and the full newsletter. Students who applied for the National Honor Society received their results last week. Students were to pick up their notification letters during their lunch. If your student has not heard back, please contact Mrs. Dorey Webster at sdoreyweb@wcboe.org. Report cards for the third term went live on the 14th. If you

    As we begin this week, we officially start the last quarter of the school year. That means we have just 46 days of school left. What I have learned over time about spring is that it moves very fast, and before you know it we will be at the end of the school year. Report cards will go live on the 14th. If you have attendance notes to turn in, please get those submitted. Students who have

    The end of this week will mark the end of the third term. With the end of the third term, teachers will have an afternoon of the 8th to complete grades. This means that students will have a three-hour early dismissal. Be sure to check out the schedule below in the newsletter. If you have attendance notes to turn in, please get those submitted.

    I just happened to glance at the entire 2021-2022 school calendar this week and realize that by the end of next week, we only have two and half months of school left. When this year started, no one knew exactly what to expect. There has been a lot of transitions, but the end of the school year is really right around the corner. Just a reminder as we approach the end of the 3rd

    We are only 15 days away from the end of the 3rd term. I share this to remind everyone that 5 unexcused absences will result in a student needing to earn back their grades. If your student has been absent be sure to turn in all doctor's notes. If at the end of the term a student still shows as having 5 unexcused absences their grades will appear as E's on their report cards. They will remain as E's until the student participates in attendance recovery. Students in grades 9-11 will be completing

  • Summer Opportunities with US Service Academies

    Juniors (students in the Class of 2023) who have an interest in learning about opportunities to attend a U.S. Service Academy for college are encouraged to apply to participate in a summer program. Each Academy’s summer program provides a week-long immersion into the academic, military, and social life of that Academy.

    It is official...we are more than halfway through the third quarter. On the 9th progress reports went live. Be sure to check out grades on the family portal. We have been enjoying both academic and athletic successes. Just recently the Boys Basketball team won the 3A regional title, our math team took home the county trophy for both JV and Varsity, and our band received the highest rating at districts. So proud of the Clipper Nation! Students in grades 9-11 will be completing the Maryland School Climate Survey during their FLEX classes at the end of the month. This survey asks about topics such as student engagement, interactions with adults and with other students in the school, the school environment,

    It may be hard to believe, but you are in the final stretch of your senior year. As we get closer to the end of the year, it will be extremely important for seniors to stay up to date. One of the best ways to do that is to regularly check the Class of 2022 google classroom. As we begin to think about Prom, students must have a 2.0 GPA to attend prom. Students also need to make sure they do not get suspended. The county dance policy states no suspension during the semester of the dance. Students will be able to bring a guest under 21. Just a reminder the
