Thought for the Week: “Keep your balance don’t waste your talents. Be drug free”. -2013 Red Ribbon week Motto

Last week at MCJHS, we had a short, three-day week. The week was full of excitement and fun! To begin the week on Wednesday, we received our report cards and later some of the students here attended Morgan City High School’s “Paint the Pit Pink” game. Also on Thursday, the Junior Tiger Band, Cheerleaders, Dance Team and Twirlers marched in the Morgan City High School Homecoming Parade and performed at the pep rally. This week is also a very important week, it is our Red Ribbon Week. We have different activates to participate in everyday. Monday, students wore their favorite hat to “put a cap on drugs”; Tuesday students wore sunglasses to “shade out drugs”. On Wednesday, many students wore a red shirt to show their support; Thursday was “crazy tie day” and also picture day. Today, students wore their favorite sports shirt, or jersey to “team up against drugs”. We have our first dance “Into the Wild” this Friday at 6:00. We invite every student here to attend; tickets cost five dollars in advanced. They can also be purchase one from Mrs. Beadle, Mrs. Melancon, Mrs. Barbier, Mrs. Landry, or Miss Hepler, or you can buy one at the door for six dollars. Have a great week, and remember to read again next week for later updates.

I hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween! First, we would like to thank our dance team for a successful “Into the Wild” school dance that was held on Friday night. Great job to Mrs. Stephanie Johnson for 1st place in the Red Ribbon Week poster contest, and another great job to the dance team and cheerleaders for the 1st place in the cheer contest. Thanks to the twirlers, NJHS members for walking in the parade on Saturday morning, and thank you to the student council members for working the cake walk at the Zoo to Boo.

Congratulations to everyone who made the honor roll, and got invited to the Honor Roll Assembly. Thursday, NJHS members, dance team members, and cheerleaders got to walk to M.E. Norman Elementary to teach the children about Halloween safety by putting on skits, playing games, and cheering about it.

Thought for the Week: “And the angel said unto them, “Fear not! For, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, Which shall be to all people. “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, Lying in a manger.” –St. Luke 2:10-12.

This week at MCJHS, we had a shortened, but exciting week. Tuesday, our MCJHS quiz bowl team had a match against Hanson Memorial High School and lost, but tried hard. Wednesday, we had our Christmas Assembly which went very well and got everyone ready for the holidays. Today, we had our annual student vs. teacher games, and everyone had lots of fun. That’s it for this week; I hope everyone has a relaxing and enjoyable break. Have fun and Happy Holidays to all!
