What's New at Next Step Junior High
Posted on September 7th, 2017
Check our Next Step Jr. High Calendar for important dates.
IMPORTANT PROGRAMMING CHANGES While creating your school plan please keep the following program changes in mind.
- The grade 7s and 8s will no longer share a split class. This means that the grade 7s will attend in the afternoons. This arrangement will benefit students during class time but will restrict teacher availability in the afternoons. It will become very important to make appointments with your teacher if you require rewrites or extra help.
- Every Wednesday afternoon from 12:30 - 1:30pm the Jr. High teachers will be holding a GYST class. GYST stands for Get Your Skills Together. This class will target specific skills with which we observe students struggling. All grade 7 students will attend GYST classes weekly. Students in grades 8 and 9 who demonstrate a need to strengthen the target skill will be required to attend. Teachers will let students know on Tuesday whether they are expected to stay Wednesday afternoon or not. We ask that families do not program activities for students on Wednesdays from 12:00 - 1:30. Students in CEA are welcome to attend as well.
