 Return Band and Orchestra Instruments 

All school owned instruments are due back to MJH by June 11. If you want me to save the instrument for you to play next year, please put a note in the case that says “save for next year and your name”. If you have a school instrument that you are not using right now, please turn it in as soon as possible.

If you are coming in person, you may bring them into the music room before advisory OR drop them off in the office before school.

If you are a distance learner, you must return school instruments to the office during office hours. Please avoid drop off and pick up times as that is the busiest time of the day.

If you have questions, please email me at wkoski@asd5.org or Erik Peterson at epeterson@asd5.org

If you are renting an instrument from Ted Brown and need to return it, please have a parent or guardian call Ted Brown at (800) 562-8938 to arrange a pick up. Please do not bring a rental instrument to the office before arranging a pick up! If you are playing next year, please keep your rental over the summer if possible!

Attention 8th graders

Band camp will take place August 16th-20th from 9:00am to 4:00pm at AHS. At band camp, we will start by learning the basics of marching and build to an entire parade routine over the span of a week with team building and FABULOUS prizes along the way. NO PREVIOUS BAND EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED! We would love to have you come and try it out, even just for one day. Feeling nervous? Bring a friend! There is no shortage of space, equipment, or helpful leaders. 

LIBRARY BOOKS

Students,

All library books are due on June 1st, class novels and textbooks are due by June 11th. 

Please remember to bring your chromebook and charger on the last day of school so that you can return it! 

 

Did you check out a MIFI Hotspot? Please return it with the charger in the original box on the last day of school.

 

Students are now able to log-in to the Timberland Regional Library with their Student ID. Students will use their nine digit Student ID number + MMYYYY(birthdate) as their log-in, and their password will be their month and day of birth(MMDD).

example: student whose ID is 123456789 and birthdate is January 1, 2008 will have a log-in of 123456789012008 and password of 0101.

Grade 6 Students-

 

Start getting ready for Environmental Field Day

Our high school Outdoor School Team is planning an Environmental Field Day for our 6th graders here at MJH on June 7 and 8.  Even though students are outside, they will be expected to follow the COVID safety protocols of wearing a mask and staying 6 feet apart.  Students should wear outdoor shoes

TEAM A (WISEMAN, EMMETT, EDDY AND HAMBLIN) is Monday, June 7.

TEAM B (NAVARRA, BARLOW, PIEROG, AND DEVALL) is Tuesday, June 8

 

There are NO ZOOMS scheduled for Distance Learners on the day their team is doing the Field Day.  Distance Learners will get some outdoor activity ideas in their Canvas Classes.

 

The 6th grade students will be taught by trained high school student leaders, just like 6th Grade Camp/Outdoor School.

The 6th grade students will be learning in groups of 4-6 and will stay in those groups only.

The 3 main learning areas will each last 1 hour and the students will go to all 3. The learning areas will be called Trail, Otter, and Plants.

Each learning area has 4-6 topics that will be covered including water quality, plants, and animals activities.

The topics will be taught by having the students do activities. There will be some data recording so a pen or pencil will be needed. 

We will be walking and standing and moving the entire time and we plan to do this rain or shine. Keep an eye on the weather forecast and have a waterproof layer ready just in case.

Cohort A School Pictures are here!

If you were in Cohort A and ordered pictures, they are here!

They have gone to your advisory teachers!

 

Distance Learners can pick them up from the school office service window during office hours.

If you are a DISTANCE learner and have finished your MAPS testing, you can come to the office window during office hours to get your second $25 gift card

If you are an IN PERSON learner and have NOT gotten your second gift card, you need to email the principal. lgriebel@asd5.org
