Welcome to Chico Junior High School
Chico Junior is already brimming with great excitement as we anticipate the arrival of the 6th graders! Also new at Chico Junior this year, is the convenience of our first year of on-line student registration. For a two week time period in August, parents will have the ability to enroll their student, change phone numbers and emergency contact information in Aeries, update medical information, all from their home computer! But there's more! Don't miss the debut of our Chico Junior on-line student store, the Cougar Den, where you can purchase your student's PE clothes, student planner, yearbook, sweatshirts, t-shirts and other items, with your credit card.
You will be receiving a letter in the mail the first week of August, containing detailed instructions on Packet Pickup, further details on the two week window for Aeries on-line access and our Cougar Den student store. If you do not receive a letter, please feel free to stop by the office. Once your student's registration in Aeries and other necessary paperwork is complete, your student will be able to receive his/her class schedule.
The first day of school is August 18th. This is a minimum day and all students will be released at 12:06pm. Lunch will be served and our BLAST after-school program will be in session. Our 1st regular school day is the following day, on Friday the 19th. School begins at 8:00am and ends at 2:46pm.
Picture Day will be Friday, August 26th. Back to School Night will be August 30th, starting at 6:30pm in the gym.
We are also thrilled to invite you to the official Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for our new Science Building which will be held on September 7th at 3:00pm, outside the new Science Building! Come witness Chico Junior history!
We look forward to seeing you soon!!
A student in our community was hospitalized after engaging in what is known among students as “the eraser challenge” or sometimes called 'the scratching game'. As this rather innocuous sounding game resulted in a serious illness, we want all parents to be aware of some of the dangerous games which have gained popularity both online and in communities across the nation.
Please read this article from Webmd.com, which summarizes five of these “games” to make yourself aware of the details.
We encourage all parents to have discussions with their children about these and other activities in which students could inadvertently put themselves or others in danger.
