If you have been at Young Middle School this year you have seen a great difference in the flow of transition, student uniform compliance, and behavior overall. Mr. Scott is a proven leader who has clearly communicated and supported the expectations set forth this year at Jean Childs Young Middle school. His "Know Your Role" Mantra asks that everyone be accountable.
In an effort to ensure that parents receive additional communication regarding their child’s progress, we will conduct our first “DO DROP IN” initiative for parents on Wednesday, September 7th in the Parent Center. “DO DROP IN”, is a time that will be allotted for parents to drop in during teachers’ respective planning period and get (1) a recent update on your child’s progress, (2) a copy of 1st semester CAAS results, (3) a possible retention letter (if applicable), (4) resources that parents can use to help students at home, and (5) resources the school is offering to ensure the success of our students (AVA Program, Before/After School Tutorial, extra assignments).
Young Middle is still a uniform school. 6th Grade Students may wear solid RED oxford and polo shirts only with khaki or black bottoms (no jeans). 7th Grade students may wear solid GOLD oxford and polo shirts only with khaki or black bottoms (no jeans). 8th Grade Students may wear WHITE solid oxford and polo shirts only with khaki or black bottoms (no jeans).
The issues of bullying, conflict management, healthy lifestyles, etc. are common struggles regardless of nationality. At JCY, we have reinforced the STEPS conflict management module from the Bullying workshop presented at the school. The Malawi youth will also receive the same presentations that JCY students experienced. We will give a more detailed understanding of their common struggles during the “Week of Understanding” while pointing out third world hardships.
It is imperative that we promote a comfortable and welcoming environment in which our students and teachers feel safe, respected and competent.
Overall, students are doing great with adhering to
the“Big 4” :
1. Wear uniform daily
2. No profanity
3. No fighting
4. Be respectful to everyone.
If you have a concern regarding your child's attendance, grades, performance or discipline, please communicate with the teacher first and then with the administration. Teachers are more than willing to speak and conference with you.
Together, we can make a difference, and I hope this school year will be the beginning of a new journey for Jean Childs Young Middle with you in transitioning Jean Childs Young Middle School from GOOD to GREAT!
