We will now start hosting after school detention for misconduct. After school detention will be an alternative to suspension. Students are to make it to After School Detention by 3:25pm. If you are late you will be assessed an extra day of detention. If students fail to make it to after-school-detention they will be assessed in-school-suspension.

Student Leadership Council
Good morning, North Junior High. Here are a few words of wisdom.
Carrie Saxon Perry, former mayor of Hartford, Connecticut, was the first female African-American mayor of a major U.S. city. Her role models were the women in her family . . . women she considered strong . . . her mother, her grandmother, and her aunt. When she was young, they taught her to persevere . . . not to give up in the face of failure, to keep trying, and, if necessary, to try again.
Their words of encouragement inspired Ms. Perry to overcome racism and poverty and to become a powerful, effective leader in the community.
The Japanese share this same wisdom when they say:
Fall seven times, stand up the eighth time.
Today, ask yourself if you are letting anything keep you down. If the answer is yes, get up and get on with it!
Make it a great day . . . or not. The choice is yours.
