To Parents of all Seniors,

We are so excited to be chairing Senior Week 2023 together. We have put together a great week of fun activities and spirit events we think the senior class will really enjoy. We are going to need lots of help from you, the parents, to make this all fall into place smoothly. Please keep your eyes open for SIGN-UPS for all the events.
Senior Week dates are Monday April 24th- Friday 28th. There is a schedule below with events and food, etc.

Senior Seminar Day, which is led by the guidance counselors, will be May 25th. The day will begin with a senior class breakfast from 8:15-10:00am followed by seminars and programs commencing with a Senior Class BBQ lunch from 12:00-2:15pm both of these wonderful events are hosted by the PTO with parent support.
There are many moving parts to make all these events happen. We will be sending sign-ups in the near future for volunteer opportunities, food donations, help with shopping etc.. If you prefer to help by sending in a monetary contribution please do so by check or through the PTO Venmo. If sending in a check, please make it out to JJHS PTO with a note for “senior week” on the check & send it to the school office.
