Regular Order, Day 7

  • This week we are raising money for the Mission Drive through a drive for Fresh Kicks Fridays. Each homeroom that raises a minimum of $150 will be awarded a Fresh Kick Friday on Friday March 8 (the Fridays after exams).  Bring money into your homeroom all this week and give to your homeroom faculty member or rep. Homerooms that make this minimum amount will be issued a bracelet to be worn on Fresh kicks day along with your Fresh kicks. Shoes must cover the toes and have backs. Slides, flip-flops, and sandals are not allowed. Students may wear Crocs, but they must be in ‘sport mode.’ White socks may be worn in place of black socks, but socks must be worn.
  • The JHS Chess Team will be hosting its annual Mission Drive Tournament, beginning on Tuesday, March 12. The deadline to register is March 11, and the cost to participate is $15. To register, email Mr. Campos at or see him in Room 309 during the first half of lunch or after school.  The winner will receive a $50 gift card of his choice, a dozen of Sra. Campos’s famous chocolate chip cookies, and a unique JHS chess piece trophy.  If you think you have what it takes to become this year’s chess champion, sign-up and claim your title.  More details will be emailed to those who register.
