Dear Guymon Junior High Families,

Illustration Of A Decorated Christmas Tree.pngWelcome December!  It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas here at the Junior High! 

First of all, I’d like to take this time to thank all of you for allowing your child(ren) to participate and help out with our canned food drive.  I’m so proud of our students, they raised over 7,800 pounds.

We had a great time at our bi-yearly Thanksgiving dinner.  Around 580 of us sat down together for Thanksgiving Dinner.  Thank you, Coach Davis and LEAP class!

Library Book Cart.pngBOOK FAIR - Please come and visit our Book Fair 8-4 the remainder of this week and 6:00 – 8:00 on Monday Dec. 4. 

Perfect Score.pngSemester Tests – We will be taking semester tests on December 15 and 18.  The best way you can help your child to be prepared is to talk with them about their test.  Ask them if they are prepared and if there is anything you can help them study for.  And, make sure they get lots of rest and a good breakfast both mornings. 

With December brings a lot of excitement for the holiday season.  This is also the month that we have more days out of school.  Parents, please use this time to bond with your children and to continue helping them academically by encouraging reading over the break.  The best way to teach our kids is by example.  We need to continue nurturing and sharpening their brains in order to be ready when they come back to school after the holidays.  We appreciate and thank you for your continued support in all our endeavors to ensure your child’s academic success.

Looking Ahead:

December 11 ~ Band Concert High School Auditorium 7:00 PM

December 15 ~ Christmas Dance 7-9

December 19 ~ Honor Roll awards Assembly

December 20 - January 2 ~ Christmas Break
