I will send out a list of SignUp Genius links next week for you to make appointments with your child’s teachers. Appointment times will be available between 3:30pm and 7:00pm on December 3. You are also welcome to contact your child’s teachers via email. You can find email addresses for each SJHS teacher at

Ethan Johnston: family first

Submitted by tara.pina on Mon, 11/23/2020 - 09:05

Ethan Johnston is one of the 8th graders here at SJHS, he cares a lot and potentially will do anything for his family. His wish is to have a billion dollars but not for the reason most teenage guys might want a billion dollars. “My wish is probably to have a billion dollars because I would like to help my family with a house and bills.” His favorite subject is cooking because it’s chill and fun to be in and the teachers are nice. Another reason is that he used to cook with his mom a lot. He doesn’t do any sports but like most teens, he just likes to hang out and chill with his friends when school isn’t in session.

School is sometimes hard for her, especially math, but she likes foods because she likes to cook and bake. Ten years from now, Ava wants to run her own flower shop on Main Street. Ava would want to learn the guitar. She really looks up to Harry Styles and loves his song “Sign of the Times”.  “It costs nothing to be nice,” says Harry Styles, and Ava lives by this.

Amayrani is very open in what she says. She always tells the truth. Amayrani likes to be called “Roni” because she says that some people always mess her name up. I asked her what was her favorite thing about our schools and she said “the food, specifically the hot and spicy chicken sandwich” and she also likes the lunch ladies because they are really nice according to Roni. “The fries are so good and the frozen strawberries.” She always thinks about food by the way.

Meet the one and only REESE FLESHNER

Submitted by tara.pina on Mon, 11/23/2020 - 08:36

Reese’s are the world's most favorite candy, that pretty much sums up what you will think of our one and only Reese Fleshner.
“Ummmm yeah,” says Reese Fleshner as he sits in math class following the teacher's instructions about adding exponents. He doesn’t blend in with the crowd with his very blonde hair, blond eyebrows, and wireframe glasses over his bright blue eyes, and a big smile. This guy is one of a kind. He did a google search of his name to discover he is the only Reese Fleshner and possibly the only Reese Fleshner to ever to have existed.
