For our upcoming Valentine’s Day on February 14th, we realize that some parents want to give their child a Valentine gift. While we encourage you to give your gift outside of school hours, MCJSH will provide an opportunity for students to receive deliveries for Valentine’s Day at school. All items delivered or dropped off will be picked up by your student at dismissal as they leave the building. We ask that if you plan to personally drop off an item, please have it here at the building by 2:00 and labeled with your child’s name, grade level, and last period teacher.

Great news!!! Our school just received two new bottle fillers as a part of the H2O on the Go grant from the Delta Dental Foundation of Illinois and Illinois Children's Healthcare Foundation. The purpose of the grant is to prevent tooth decay, which is the leading chronic disease among children. The water bottle-filling stations encourage consumption, helping lessen tooth decay, aiding in reducing obesity, increasing energy levels and improving students’ attention span and ability to learn. As a part of the grant, each student had the opportunity to get a Green Reusable Bottle and a toothbrush. As you can see from one of the photos, one student took the opportunity to use the new toothbrush. It was great to see how many students were using the water bottle and one student simply said, "The bottle and the bottle filler makes drinking water so convenient."
