*Make-up picture day will be Friday, October 18th.

*For the first time at the NEA District Fair, the performing arts from local schools, dance academies, and 4H groups will be performing on Monday night, Sept 16th.  The Brookland JH Choirs will perform 3 songs around 7:20-7:35. The entire event starts at 6:30 pm, at the stage area to the right when you enter. This is totally separate from the Talent Show and it is not a contest just an opportunity to perform.  Please support our students if you can! This is the first-ever Fine Arts at the Fair!

*Tryouts for the Junior High Talent Show (7th-9th Grade) will be this Wednesday during 4th or 7th period, or after school from 3:05 - 7:00 pm. Auditions will take place in Mrs. Arnold's Choir Room.  You must BE prepared. Do not audition unless you have practiced. It does not have to be perfect, but you will not be chosen if you are not prepared. Your total performance time cannot go over 3 mins and 30 secs, although we can fade out music.  The date of the Talent Show will be Oct. 17th, during 7th period. You will perform for 7th-9th grade that day. Winners of the Talent Show will receive: 1st Place a $25 gift card, 2nd place a $20 gift card, and 3rd place a $15 gift card. We would love to see some quality Group performances so more people can be onstage.  Try a Lip Sync with a group of friends!

Junior High Retake Guidelines

  • All students may retake assessments aiming for mastery learning.
  • Students are required to retake an assessment if they score below 70%.
  • There will be a two week deadline for each retake. (No retakes will be given within the last week of the current grading period.)
  •  Students who abuse the retake policy will lose retake privileges and are subject

   to disciplinary action.


  •  Students must be re-mediated before they can retake an assessment.  Remediation could include:
    • Completing homework
    • Correcting homework
    • Test corrections
    • Individual tutoring (tutoring outside of the school is acceptable, but documentation would be necessary)
