We are saddened to hear of the loss of our previous librarian Francoise Coombs. Her funeral will be held Thursday, February 7, 2019 at 1 PM. We have many of our staff wishing to be with her family and celebrate her life and as such are requesting your understanding as we will be adjusting the learning on Thursday.
Thursday’s schedule will consist of 37 minute classes for period 1-6 (regular classes are 47 min). Lunch will take place later than usual, starting at 12:27. After lunch we will do a 30 minute DEAR (drop everything and read - we normally do this right before period 3), and finish with a movie for each grade. The movies chosen have been picked by Language Arts classes and have direct ties to a novel they are reading, or themes that tie into current work being done in class.
Grade 6 will watch A Monster Calls
Grade 7 will watch The Sandlot
Grade 8 will watch The Boy in the Striped Pajamas Grade
Students are welcome to stay for the afternoon even though it will not be the usual schedule. This change to our schedule allows all our staff to attend the funeral and support them in their grieving process. We feel this is an essential support due to the strong relationships and legacy that Francoise has left at CJHS.
Please call the school with any questions or concerns.
