JFHS Parent /Family UpdateNovember 17, 2023

Mr. Wilson's Message

This coming week we will be out of school Wednesday, November 22 through Friday, November 24 for Thanksgiving. I know it will be nice for our teachers and students to take some time off of their hard work to be with family. This time of year, we often reflect on what they are thankful for.


Here at JF, we have a lot to be thankful for. We are thankful for parents and families who support their students and challenge them to be successful every day. We are thankful for the community for partnering with us to provide opportunities and resources for our students. We are thankful for the teachers, paraprofessionals, support staff, administrators, counselors, custodians, nutrition workers and all our staff who care about our students success and have the best interest of our students each and every day.


Our thoughts are with those who are working to contain the fire in our county. I hope all of you will come out and support our football team tonight when we face EC Glass in the Regions semis tonight here at Sabre Stadium. Let's go Cavs!


As you have time this coming week as a family, you may want to ask your student:

1. What are you most thankful for this year at school?

2. What are you thankful for here at home?


Have a great week
