Dear Incoming 7th Graders and Parents/Guardians,
In just a few weeks you will be entering junior high school! At that time, we will be very excited to welcome you to this next exciting step in your educational career. Your mind has probably started to fill up with all sorts of questions about Channahon Junior High School. Well there is good news; we have a day designed to answer those questions called 7th Grade Step-up Day.
7th Grade Step-up Day will be on Thursday, August 8, 2019. We will offer two different presentations followed by a building tour. You may bring school supplies to place in your locker after your building tour. The schedule for 7th Grade Step-Up Day will be as follows:
7th Grade Step-up Day Presentation #1 (CJHS GYM)
7th Grade Step-up Day Presentation Opportunity #2 (CJHS GYM)
You and your family can just pick whichever presentation time best fits your schedule that day. After the presentation, you will be able to walk your class schedule, see inside your classrooms, and open your locker. Teachers will not be present at Step-up Day, but they will be available to meet parents at the more formal “Meet the Teachers Night” on August 28, 2019, which starts at 5:00 p.m.
I look forward to meeting you on August 8th and I hope you have a great summer!
P.E. Uniforms are sold by Ken Woody’s Sports and More in Joliet. Ken Woody’s will have uniforms and sell them at Channahon Junior High School during 7th Grade Step-Up Day and 8th Grade Locker Day. If you miss those dates, they also sell them in their store (available now). The dates and times Ken Woody’s will be present at CJHS are as follows:
August 8th (7th Graders):
1:30-3:15 (Step-up Day begins in the gym at 2:00)
4:30-6:15 (Step-up Day begins in the gym at 5:00)
August 12th (7th & 8th Graders):
9:00-11:00 a.m. (8th Grade Locker Day is between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.).
*7th Graders can also return on this date if needed to put supplies in their locker or purchase a PE uniform.
Although we are switching to a reversible red and white t-shirt this year (less expensive for families), returning 8th graders may still use their current black and red PE shirt for their 8th grade year if they so choose.
