A MESSAGE FROM DR. MITZNER

Today we had our first WatchDog dads at TJH! It is great to continue to expand the experiences that we can offer at our school in the third year. (If you want to be a part of our WatchDogs, click here.) Things are underway for our next Fun Food Frenzy on Friday, February 15th. The proceeds from this PTSA event will go directly to fund our 8th grade celebration. Sign up to donate items from our Amazon wishlist here or sign up to volunteer at the event here. It is always a fun event for students!

As we continue to work on our safety plan around campus, I wanted to update you on the progress with our bike racks. Later this week, we will adding the 3 additional bicycle racks and moving 3 bicycle racks to the island so that students can easily enter, exit and secure their bicycles. Our WatchDog dads were a great help with this today. In addition, we will be talking with the students about ensuring that they push the crosswalk on Roesner which causes the flashing light to stop traffic. Our local Constable wanted to make sure that we explain this to our students.

I know that the results from the Attendance Boundary Modification were not what some of our families desired. Know that we will be working with families transitioning to another campus to make it a smooth transition. If you have questions, we are happy to provide you with answers or direct you to the proper channels.

Hope you have a great week!

Regards,

Dr. Kris Mitzner

COUNSELOR'S CORNER

Core Essential for January - Self-Control (Yellow): Choosing to do what you should even when you don't want to.

PARENT AND VISITOR IDENTIFICATION (ID) REQUIREMENT:

One of Katy Independent School District's top priorities is the safety and well-being of our students, staff, parents and community members, who visit our campuses and facilities. This school year, Katy ISD announces additional campus safety and security measures which include:

  • All parents and visitors must now present a valid, current, government-issued picture ID outside of the main entrance at all Katy ISD campuses prior to gaining admittance. Each campus is equipped with a controlled access system that includes a camera and an intercom that parents and visitors will need to utilize when presenting their ID for entrance. To gain further access beyond the campus front lobby, individuals will again be required to present their ID to the front desk receptionist in order to be officially logged into the visitor tracking system.
  • Student Identification (ID) Badge Requirement:
    Secondary students must now wear their ID badges at all times during school hours, while on district property. Students in grades PK-5 will continue to use their badges during lunch and library times. Fourth and fifth-grade students are requested to wear their badges throughout the school day. At the secondary level, failure to follow the ID badge requirement may be considered a violation of the Student Code of Conduct.
  • Campus Door Unlock Times:
    Controlled access systems on campuses will now unlock main entrance doors at a set time each morning. The standard door unlock times for main entrance doors at the Junior High is 8:10 a.m.

END OF SCHOOL DAY PICK UP REQUESTS

Parents, if we could please request, that you pick up students before 3:15 pm if they have an after school appointment or event to get to. It can be difficult for us to get your students near the end of the school day and change their transportation home. As always, if you know your student will be leaving school during the day, it would be very helpful for you to send a note to school in the morning so our ADA can give them a class release for the time you will be picking them up. Thank you!

LUNCH DELIVERIES

Students and Parents, please be aware that we cannot accept lunch deliveries from restaurants or delivery services for student lunches in the front office. We just do not have the space or manpower to engage in these types of deliveries during the day. We thank you in advance for your cooperation in this regard.

LOST AND FOUND

The lost and found Link has been updated for this week. Click here to see the Lost & Found. This link never changes so you can save it to review. Please reclaim your items in the counselor's office.

All lunch boxes, water bottles, shoes, and school supplies will be stored in the cafeteria. Students must check the lost and found table in the cafeteria during their lunches. Clothing items will be photographed and displayed on the Lost and found link. Clothing items can be claimed in the counseling office. Don't forget to put your name on items that you bring to school!
