Parents,
At this point in your child's high school career, freshmen need to start seeing themselves as young adults, in charge of their own destiny.  To help educate them you might think about reading and possibly discussing some of these truths written by Charles J. Sykes found at the following website:

50 Rules Kids Won't Learn in School - click here

 

Attention Parents:

Please ask your student to open their Johnston County email for you and make sure that they are reading their email.  Email's in bold are unread.  Also please ask them to open their Google Drive.  Ask them to show you documents that they have created in their Google Drive and documents under the "Shared with Me" tab.  Students need to be using their Johnston County email regularly.

Students are to treat this gmail as a professional email and should not use it to sign up for any personal accounts such as Facebook or Pandora.
 

If you have used your JCS Gmail account, but forgot your password, email yvettedavis@johnston.k12.nc.us to have your password reset, or go to the media center. 

Freshmen, prepare yourself for future success!!

1.  Embrace a rigorous course load

2.  Establish an Academic Plan with your Counselor

3.  Join a Club at WJHS

4.  Participate in community service

5.  Know College requirements - see the Document Manager tab to the left

6.  Attend school regularly. 

Studies show that students who miss only one week of school per quarter are more likely to start a downward spiral in their educational success.  Students who fail classes in 9th grade are also more likely to drop out of high school before graduation.

Classes cover 90 minutes of material every day.  Students can make-up assignments, but they miss instruction, opportunities to ask questions and/or participate in class activities and discussions.  

Check out the website below if you want to know more about how absences affect success in 9th grade and how success in 9th grade is the most important indicator in overall high school success.
