Dual Enrollment students who need to take the Accuplacer - the people for ACC will be here TOMORROW at 8:20 to administer the test. Sign up in Mrs. Nowak's office. (If you took it last year, you don't have to retest, but you can if you want to try to improve your score.)
NATIONAL HONORS SOCIETY:
Students who were invited to NHS: if you need community service hours, please see Mrs. Wojtkowiak.
The invitations that Mrs. Wojtkowiak handed out yesterday has a typo. The due date on the cover letter is incorrect, it should say April 5, 2023, not May 6, 2023.
If you’re in NHS looking for service hours or want to
help the J-L Robotics team make it to states, please come to Ms. Monroe’s room Monday-Thursday during lunch or any free hours you have to help our team make bot bugs!
Congratulations to The Army of Sum, your high school First Robotics team. This past Thursday-Saturday they competed at Traverse City Central High School against 38 other teams from across the state. We were chosen for the fourth seed final alliance and finished 8th overall. The Army was awarded the Creativity Award by the panel of judges. Here is what the judges had to say about your Army: "Marching onto the field with a mighty army and the support of their community, this team's creative engineering and strong social media presence are two halves of a single unit. Faced with limited resources, this team came up with a creative solution that allows them to collect and place game pieces without time-consuming turns. Summing it up, this team is full of all-stars!" This is the first time since 2010 that the team has been selected for two awards in a single season! Please congratulate Dylan White, Andrew Haren, Isabelle Monroe, Hannah Witt, Josh Maves, Avery Huston, Owen Smith, Riley Licht, and Parker Huston on a fabulous season!
Reminder that the Creative Arts Expo is this Wednesday. Doors open at 6pm to view & vote on the art. The talent show starts at 6:30. Admission and concessions by donation.

Schoolwork First is an opportunity to reward students who turn in all of their homework, on time, in every class. This list is turned in to the office at the end of each marking period. Students who are on the Schoolwork First list for the marking period, receive a pass to get out of class at first bell for lunch during the following marking period. Students are also awarded at the end of the year with certificates from the high school principal.
Early/Middle College: JLHS is looking at options to start an Early College program that would allow students (beginning with current Freshman) an opportunity to earn an Associates of Arts Degree. Students would “sign on” for 5 years of high school, with the 5th year being entirely college centered. Through targeted scheduling, students would complete their high school diploma and receive an AA degree through NCMC at the end of their 5th year. More to come on this…
Dual Enrollment/Released Time Students:
If you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year, please do not hesitate to contact me at 731-4420 (extension 244).
