Dear GJH Families,

It’s A New School Year!

September 1, 2017

 Welcome back Guymon Junior High School Families!

On behalf of the entire faculty and staff, I hope that you have enjoyed a restful and relaxing summer!   As I begin my eleventh year at Guymon Junior High, I am particularly grateful for the blessing of this community of staff, students and families in my life, and am eager to see you again throughout the school year.   We have had many hours of good discussion about how staff and families can work together to ensure that our students are receiving an education that supports and empowers them as they strive to reach their full potential as young men and women of promise, intelligence and goodness.   We have spent many days working hard to strengthen and enrich our academic program, fortify our identity as Guymon Tigers, and put systems in place that will facilitate teacher/family communication in every classroom.  We are proud and excited to launch the 2017-2018 school year with our incredibly talented and dedicated teaching staff and your child.

With our new year, I’m pleased to welcome and announce our new Assistant Principal/Athletic Director, Tyler Chapman.  He comes to us with many years of administration and AD experience.

I’m also pleased to welcome back and announce our new counselor, Lindsay Skelton.  With her many years of experience in the classroom as well as counseling experience, she will and has already richly blessed our school.  

Let us begin this school year the same way we begin every day with our students, grounded in the mission of Guymon Public Schools:

In the Guymon Public Schools, all students can learn, although it may be at different rates, in different modalities, and at different levels. It is the mission of the Guymon Public Schools to provide educational experiences and a safe learning climate which will insure that each student is competent in mandated Oklahoma Academic Skills and one which will enhance each student's opportunity to be a productive, well-prepared citizen.

Below please find some important notes and reminders about the start of the school year.  Thank you in advance for your attention to the many details.

  •  School Handbook: With school safety, student learning, and teacher/family communication as our highest priorities, we have revised the School Handbook so that it lays out the policies and the procedures that we will follow during the 2017-2018 school year.  
  • Activities:  Game day tickets for: Adults and students (K-12 and Adults) $5 Student Activity Pass (All Sports) $25
  • School Supplies:  Thanks to “Fill the Bus” and local businesses, many of our teachers and students have received needed school supplies and clear/mesh backpacks.
  • Student Absences:  It is the parent/guardian's responsibility to call your child in by 10:00 A.M., if they are going to be absent or tardy.  

Again, Welcome to the new school year.  We are excited that you are joining us for 2017-2018 school year.  This will be a wonderful year!

Thank you for your trust and support,

Mrs. Winters, Principal
