    Candy Grams

    Next week, Leadership will be hosting a Candy Gram Sale. They will be available for purchase at lunch, near the boys’ locker room on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Candy grams will be sold for $1 each. You are able to buy as many candy grams you want for yourself and friends. If you are planning on sending a candy gram to a friend, be sure to know who their 7th period teacher is.  This information is needed to make the deliveries.  Leadership students will be delivering them Thursday, Dec. 9th during 7th period.


    Emergency Cards

    Students, please make sure your emergency cards are either filled out online or the paper form has been turned into the front office.


    Pizza Friday

    Pizza will be sold today during both lunches.  Slices are $2 and bottle water will be sold for $1. Students may purchase up to 2 slices of pizza each.  Please bring exact change to help make the line move more quickly.



    All students with four or more tardies will be assigned one day of lunch detention. Tardies will add up.  The more tardies you have, the more lunch detentions you will receive.


    Face Masks

    Masks are the rule at school.  Please wear your face mask indoors and on buses. We will supply cloth masks IF you do not have a mask. You may also bring your own mask from home, if you prefer.  Remember to wash your cloth masks before wearing them again.

    Students, do not bring personal items such as pencils, pens or cell phones with you to the bathrooms.  If you do, they will be held outside. These items are not allowed in the bathrooms.


    Campus PRIDE 

    At La Joya, we are very proud of our campus.  Please make sure that any trash goes into the trash cans, and walk only on the cement.  Our amazing groundskeeper works very hard, so let’s show respect and La Joya PRIDE by staying off of the grass.  Gum is not allowed at school.
