FJSHS Upcoming Events
There are several different events taking place in the JSHS for students. Please read below for more details.
Statewide ACT Test for Juniors - February 25th
On Tuesday, February 25th all juniors will take part in the statewide ACT test in the JH gymnasium. Students will not report to their class that morning. Instead, they will report directly to the cafeteria. Students who submit the permission slip will be permitted to leave for the day after the conclusion of the test.
Real Money Real World - March 3rd
Last year we partnered with Superior Credit Union and the Ohio State University Extension office to bring this financial simulation to our 11th and 12th-grade students. We are offering this event again this year, this time for 9th and 11th-grade students on Tuesday, March 3rd. Students will be preparing for this with a curriculum that is being taught by their SUCCESS teachers throughout February. Click here for more information about RMRW
College and Career Fair - March 5th
Another event that we coordinated last year was the College and Career Fair. In the past, we have had various employers present at a Job Fair, but this was the first time we offered both employers and college and military recruiters. 10th, 11th, and 12th-grade students will rotate through the gymnasium and have the opportunity to meet with the various employers and representatives to discuss their future career interests and explore the options available to them.
We look forward to all of these opportunities to connect FJSHS students to the "real world" in an effort to equip them with the knowledge and tools needed to succeed in their lives after high school.
