Parents, please join us on Wednesday, December 11th from 6:30p to 8:30p at Sanford High School for a presentation called Risky Business. This event is for parents of kids in grades 6-12. During this event, Melissa Fernald-- a duly licensed social worker and master licensed drug and alcohol counselor-- invites adults to learn about warning signs that an adolescent may be experiencing mental health, social, or emotional issues. Fernald stages a mock teenage bedroom to include various warning signs of mental illness, bullying, and other concerns. This interactive event is intended to increase community awareness, promote early detection of mental illness, provide tools and resources, and demonstrate communication techniques for engaging effectively with adolescents.

Hi, This is just a reminder that Student Led Conferences are this Wednesday afternoon and evening. You are invited to come to the 8th grade wing at SHS between 3:30 and 7:30 so, that your child can take you to each class and show you the work that is being completed. Teachers will not be available for 6:00-6:30 as that is when they are having their dinner break. We hope to see you this Wednesday. Respectfully, Mr. Potter Administrator with the 8th grade

Sanford Junior High School Family News November 1, 2019 NEW INFORMATION The first quarter is almost over! Report cards will go home with students on Wednesday, November 13th. Thanks to all for making the Pie Fundraiser a great success! The proceeds will support activities benefitting SJHS students. NEXT WEEK Parent/Student/Teacher conferences will be held on Wednesday, November 6th from 3:15 to 7:00, with a staff dinner break from 5:00 to 5:45. Students can show their parents their classrooms, introduce their teachers, and share school projects in an informal “Open House” style atmosphere. IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT CONFERENCES As many of you know, several of our teachers travel between our eighth grade wing at SHS and SJHS during the day to teach in both places. At student-led conferences on November 6, these teachers will be available at both locations to see families. The list of traveling teachers includes Mrs. Baker Roux, Miss Nason, Mrs. Coleman, Mrs. Houle, and Mr. Bellefeuille. These teachers will be available from 3:15-4:45 at SHS for eighth grade families, and again from 5:45-7:00 at SJHS for all families whose children have them. Please reach out to them with specific questions, should you have any! A Book Fair will be held at the Junior High from November 4th through the 9th in the SJHS library. It will be open during school hours, and also during conferences on the 6th. There is a website with more information about the fair at https://bookfairs.scholastic.com/ bf/sanfordjuniorhighschool. On that site you will find information about payment methods (we cannot accept checks) and how to set up eWallet, an account for your child(ren) so they do not need to carry cash. You may also order online (from October 30th-November 12th) where you will see a larger selection plus shipment info. Any questions? Please email Mrs. Williams at jwilliams@sanford.org. All Infinite Campus parent portal requests have been fulfilled. If you submitted a form but did not receive an email with portal instructions, please call 324-3114, and choose the office option.

This is day one for our 8th graders as they construct their Underwater Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV). On hand are engineers from the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard to offer support for students who are puzzled by the manual or to supervise the use of the materials and tools. There is a lot of excitement and smiles here.
