Weekly Update: January 08, 2018

Greetings Bob Jones' Parents,

I hope you have had a wonderful winter break! Last week, your students and our teachers were eased into their first couple of days with the delayed start. So, I hope everyone is ready to begin this semester with energy and persistence. I was telling many students on Friday that this can be a time for a new start or a time to make adjustments in study habits or commitments with new classes, new clubs and new opportunities. I am excited about this semester and with all of the opportunity that will be afforded to our students. Encourage your student to give their best effort in all classes.

Congrats to BJ Math team on placing 13th in the NATION in the Ciphering Time Trials! Congrats to our individual awards 12th grade-Shantanu Kadam placing 19th, 11th grade-Cheng Zhou placing 19th and Aditi Limaye placing 24th. Way to go, Coach Kimberly Cox!

Our wrestling teams have continued to win most of the events they have participated in throughout their season. Come out on to BJHS on Thursday for a match vs JCHS & Buckhorn. Our basketball teams have gained valuable experience over the break with several tournaments. Track & Bowling are still working hard within their seasons.

You are invited to our Bob Jones High School College Fair on Thur, January 18. Over 50 colleges, military & institutions will be represented. This is a perfect time to obtain information, check out many colleges and even make connections with reps & alumni.
