    Special announcements:

    7th and 8th grade students: Check out an important announcement about CJSF membership!  Since we do not yet know when school will resume, here is the plan for CJSF applications and membership:

    1. 8th graders:

      1. 2nd trimester applications, which were originally due on March 18, are now due on Friday, May 8. To complete your application, visit our Oak Grove website and view the CJSF page under “Parent and Student Resources.”  Print and complete the CJSF application, and email it to me.  You can scan it, or take a picture of it – whichever is easier.  If you would like a paper copy of the application mailed to you, please contact me.

      2. Remember that 8th grade students are eligible to promote “with CJSF honors” if they are members two trimesters in their 7th grade year, and two trimesters in their 8th grade year. If you are not sure of your status, please email Mrs. Mazman-Moore and Mrs. Sanchez so that they can check for you.

      3. All 8th graders will be notified of their final CJSF status by Friday, May 22 through their district email or phone call.

    2. 7th graders:

      1. As you know, students are eligible to promote from 8th grade “with CJSF honors” if they are members two trimesters in their 7th grade year, and two trimesters in their 8th grade year.

      2. However, instead of accepting your 2nd trimester applications now, we will announce new deadlines for them later on.

      3. If school resumes sometime in May, we will announce a May/June deadline.

      4. If school does not resume until August, we will announce an August/September deadline.

      5. We will then continue with the normal 8th grade deadlines for application in November 2020 and March 2021. This will ensure that all current 7th graders can be eligible to promote from 8th grade “with CJSF honors” in June of 2021.  We will be sure that this school closure does not affect your ability to promote “with honors” next spring!

      6. If you are not sure of your status, please email Mrs. Mazman-Moore and Mrs. Sanchez so they can check for you.

    3. Parents or students – if you have any questions or concerns, please contact me, Mrs. Mazman-Moore, or Mrs. Sanchez. Thank you!

      Note that this Monday, April 6th, is the last day to order a yearbook online. We are unsure how many copies, if any, will be available for purchase outside of the online sales, so if you would like a yearbook, please be sure to submit an order online before the deadline. Thank you.

    • 7th and 8th graders – The deadline for your 2nd trimester CJSF applications was originally extended to April 17.  However, we are checking with the state CJSF representative for guidance on how to proceed from here.  For now, just hang tight – there is nothing due yet.  When we know something more, we will let you know.  Thanks for your patience.
