  • Let's Lend Even More Hands!

    Alright Jets, we're sure by now you have seen the hands posted in the front hallway. Those are just some of the many hands that show how our students are ready to lend a hand. For each hand you create, with a thoughtful idea of how to help someone else, the Bezos Foundation will donate $1.90 to students in Nicaragua and Indonesia. This is such an easy way to help others, as the money will be used to alleviate poverty for those students who typically live on $1.90 or less a day. Our goal is to collect at least 2,000 more so start thinking and cutting! Bring all hands to the ESL room, room 204.

    • A 1.1 point increase in our ACT composite score (largest in five years)
    • Workkeys composite up over 14% (WorkKeys® is an assessment taken by seniors that measures skills in career and technical education)  
    • Greater percentage of Math I students college and career ready
    • Greater percentage of students who are grade level proficient in EOC composite (EOC combines Math I, Biology and English II scores)

     “We are proud to see our emphasis on student growth is paying off,” said Principal Crayton. “Our faculty and staff have made a tremendous effort to help every student learn every day.”

  • JM Pinwheels Project Raises ove $7000 for Syrian Refugee Children!

     
    We wanted to thank everyone who so graciously donated their time to making pinwheels, to all the teachers who creatively integrated pinwheels into their classwork and homework, and to all who anonymously dropped off pinwheels in room 204. We wish we could thank everyone by name, but there were so many. We do want to give a special thank you to Mrs. Pate, though, for setting up a pinwheel maker space, and a huge shout out to Ms. Pillars and the ESL students for spearheading the project!
    In all, Jordan-Matthews High School created just over 3500 pinwheels, which translates to more than $7000 in donations toward the education of Syrian refugee children. That's an amazing testament to how small actions can create big impact , and we are grateful for Jet generosity. 
    Some of the pinwheels will be used as part of a commemorative display for the International Rescue Committee, while other will be sent to the Syrian refugee school locations. Awesome job, Jets!!
