Freshmen Parent Orientation 4-5 PM
Parents, come and have your questions answered by the JRHS administration. Since high school
is very different than middle school - including the culture, rules, expectations, and rigor, - we
encourage you to attend!
New Family Welcome Fair 5-7 PM
You and your family are invited to attend the first New Family Welcome Fair. Get to
know all that JRHS has to offer including our co-curriculars, clubs, and sports. Be
inspired as we hear from motivation speaker, Shaun Derik, and then enjoy a club fair
and dinner options from various local food trucks..
While we hope you can make all the events on August 30th, your child’s attendance
from 2-5PM is paramount. Thank you!
