We are excited for JJHS HOPE WEEK 2015! Our theme for this year is...Our school is like a symphony, everyone plays a piece....YOU are GLORIOUS! We have many assemblies and activities planned to help inform students about preventing youth suicide through education, training, and peer to peer interventions. It is our goal to help increase knowledge of suicide warning signs, create positive relationships among student peers and faculty, break the code of silence by training students not to keep deadly secrets, raise awareness and acceptance for students to seek help from a trusted adult, reduce self destructive behaviors and youth suicides, as well as to educate students and parents about community mental health resources. Please call Mrs. Robins if you have questions or want more information 623-1541.

It is time for Juab Junior High registration! We are excited to meet our incoming students for the 2015-16 school year. Mrs. Robins willl be registering 6th and 7th graders the week of March 23. If you have any questions or concerns about class offerings or the schedule please call Mrs. Robins at 623-1541.
The Utah State Office of Education released the results of the SAGE (Student Assessment of Growth and Excellence) adaptive test in math, language arts, and science that our students participated in at the end of last school year. This was the first administration of this test and it reflects a substantial increase in rigor in the Utah State Standards that we are following at Juab Jr. High School. With the increase in difficulty or rigor on the test it is not surprising that the results of our students on this test decreased. Since it is a new test based on new standards there is no data from previous years to compare these results to. Our students are not learning less and our teachers are not teaching less it is just that the rules to the game have changed with the increase in rigor in the standards. The results that we have just received from USOE will serve as a baseline and a beginning point for us to prepare for the same test that will be administered again this coming spring. They will also help us to set goals for improvement in many areas in our school. The news media will be reporting that according to the new standards many of the schools throughout Utah including Juab Jr. High School will be labeled with low grades as the new school accountability report cards are published. Do not panic, this is a new test, these are new standards, we at Juab Jr. High School are committed to academic excellence and will evaluate the results of this test and will identify exactly where we need to improve and focus our attention and then do it. I expect our students to perform at high levels and to be challenged on a daily basis at Juab Jr. High School. I look forward to the challenge that an increase in rigor on the standards and an increase in difficulty on the SAGE test creates for us. I am confident that with the support of parents and teachers our students will continue to learn at high levels and be able to prepare for a successful future. We are planning on distributing these SAGE test results to parents and students at the next Parent Teacher Conferences that will be held on November 17th from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm. You can come in then or if you would like to receive them sooner you can call or come to the office and request them. If you would like to view the SAGE results they can be found at:
We are looking for HOPE squad members......
To become a member of the HOPE squad you must be nominated by your peers and teachers. We will be holding Hope Squad nominations this week during lunch. The HOPE squad is a school based peer to peer program that trains students in "Promoting Hope and Empowerment" to all students. You will be educated about the warning signs of suicide and trained in ways to help your peers. Once the HOPE squad is trained, the team will then train all students in our school to notice warning signs of suicide, build positive relationships with others, break the code of silence, reduce self-destructive behaviors, and reduce youth suicide. Trainings for the squad will take place during homeroom/tutorial time.
Here are some things to think about as you make your nominations for the HOPE squad. HOPE Squad members should be concerned about others, should be easy to talk to, a good listener, and someone you could turn to if you needed a friend.
There are many schools in the state of Utah implementing HOPE squads and we are excited for JJHS to be a part of helping Utah defeat Suicide!
Please see Mrs. Robins for more information.
We are excited to welocme Nicole Brough Graff (A Juab Alumni) to kick off our 2014-15 College Tour. She will be representing the COUGARS from Brigham Young University on October 13, 2014. For more information see Mrs. Robins.

2. The "Wheel"
- This program is set up to reward those students who are positive citizens in their respective classrooms. It is valuable to have students on time and in their seats when the bell rings, completing and turning in assignments on time, and staying organized. When a student exhibits these behaviors they are eligible to spin "The Wheel" for prizes during lunch on Thursdays. Teachers will award spin passes as they see students demonstrating good citizenship.

- The "End of Year Activity" will be a reward for those students that have been a member of the Buzz Club in at least 3 out of 4 terms throughout the school year. Students who need membership in the 4th term to be eligible for the End of Year Activity will need to be eligible for Buzz Club on a specific date announced by the office in April.
BULLYING – Definition: When a student or group of students purposely does something to someone else that would:
1. Hurt their feelings.
2. Hurt them physically.
3. Embarrass them.
4. Shame them.
Bullying is all about power and control. Those who bully are trying to gain power and control over those they are bullying. We at Juab Jr. High School do not tolerate bullying in any of its many forms. Our goal is to BALANCE THE POWER, which gives that power back to all of the students that attend our school.
3 things must be present for an interaction to be considered bullying:
1. An imbalance of power.
2. Repetitive in nature.
3. One sided.

This year Juab Junior High School is using a different Mobile Device Management System (MDM) on the 7th and 8th Grade iPods and iPads. One of the new features with this new system is that the iPods and iPads are filtered at the school, home and all other places.
