News Blog Category - News This Friday, a special ceremony will mark the beginning of a new phase of life for our seventh-graders. We hope you will join us as we encourage them and celebrate them. Please read the letter below from Ms. Donald, McCulloch principal:

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):
 
McCulloch Junior High School (McJH) makes every effort to build itself upon a sturdy foundation of merit and achievement for all its scholars and programs. For this reason, we commit ourselves to improve the development and culture of our school community. In doing so, we are preparing for our first annual Seventh Grade Induction Ceremony.
 
This year’s class of 2020 will take part in the formal swearing in ceremony Friday, September 12, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. in the school’s North Gym. The ceremony will commemorate our new group of seventh grade scholars who are transitioning from the immaturities and anxieties they leave behind in intermediate school to the advancement and confidence they will develop as successful junior high scholars. Thus, the purpose of the Cub Scholar Induction ceremony is to formally recognize our incoming scholars as vital stakeholders to our academic and social network of Top Scholars.
 
Scholars should dress in black bottoms and white tops. Please do not feel compelled to buy attire for this ceremony.
 
We invite all parents and McCulloch Junior High community
to attend the swearing in of the class of 2020
Friday, September 12, 2014 at
10:00 a.m.
 
 
 
Educationally Yours,
 
 
J. M. Donald, Instructional Leader
