Parent/Student Scheduling Meeting - New Date
The meeting previously scheduled for Thursday, February 13th but was cancelled due to the calamity day, has been rescheduled for this Thursday, February 27th at 6:00 p.m. in the FJSHS Computer lab.
Families will enter the building using the main entrance on the east side, and will be directed to the computer lab from there. Please read below for more information regarding the Scheduling Meeting.
At this meeting school counselors will present course request sheets as well as the high school Course Catalog for the upcoming school year. Parents will then be given time to review these documents and complete the course request with their student. School administration and counselors will be available to assist with any questions families may have.
If you are unable to attend this meeting, but would like to review the material with your child at home, both the course request sheet and course catalog will be available to be picked up from the counselors’ office after February 13th. Any student who has not returned a completed course request sheet to the school counselors by Monday, February 17th will have their course requests completed here at school with a counselor.
It is our goal to create a greater sense of awareness and provide an opportunity for collaboration between families and our school. If you are unable to attend the meeting, but would like to discuss your child’s schedule with a counselor or school administrator, please do not hesitate to contact the Junior/Senior High School at (419) 436-4110.
FJSHS Upcoming Events
There are several different events taking place in the JSHS for students. Please read below for more details.
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.
