High School Announcements
Swiss Exchange Student
Journeys School is getting a short-term Swiss exchange student! Ella Eggenberger arrives on Saturday and will be enrolled in 10th grade until November 2. She will be staying with Heidi Kohler. Please join us in welcoming her on Monday!
We are looking for old pillows and cushions (preferably with removable/washable covers) to create a reading nook in the high school. If you have any to donate, please pass them to Shoshana. Gracias!
Jeff Bucholtz at Journeys School
Friday, September 29
The Community Safety Network is sponsoring speaker Jeff Bucholtz again this year. Mr. Bucholtz, who has met with Journeys School students several times in recent years, will return Friday, September 29 to talk with high school students about combatting sexual violence and building strong, healthy relationships. This year Mr. Bucholtz will address objectification of the sexes, particularly girls.
Save the dates: Parent/Teacher conferences will take place Wednesday, October 18 and Wednesday, October 25 from 4:00pm to 8:00pm. These short conferences - eight minutes per teacher - provide an opportunity for parents to meet with all of their child’s teachers to hear about strengths and challenges.
