A Note From The Principal

The start of another school year has quickly arrived here in Lafayette. I sincerely hope that everyone in the Broncho Family has had an enjoyable and eventful summer and is excited about the beginning of another school year. The custodial staff, maintenance staff and support staff have all been busy preparing the schoolhouse for the much anticipated return of our students.

The summer has allowed me some time to reflect on the amazing opportunities and offerings JHS students are allotted. With that said, did you know all that JHS has to offer? This newsletter would be ten pages long if I listed everything, but here are just a few of the many things that make JHS

so unique:

JHS offers a Fire and Rescue Academy. (Last year we had 13 students graduate from the JHS/LFD Cadet Fire and Rescue Academy, earning 12 college credits and several industry certifications.)

JHS offers health services courses. (Twenty-four JHS students will have the opportunity to earn their CNA and Indiana State Dept. of Health certification by the end of the 2014-15 school year.)

JHS offers opportunities in Emergency Medical Services. (This year, 7 JHS students will have the opportunity to earn the EMT state certification and dual credits.)

JHS offers an extensive Culinary Arts program. (Last year we had 27 students enrolled in the Advanced Culinary Arts program who earned industry certifications.)

JHS offers dual credit opportunities through Ivy Tech. (Last year JHS students earned 560 college credits.)

JHS houses a Building Trades program. (The program gives students firsthand experience in construction by helping to build a home within our community while earning credits toward apprenticeship status through the Indiana-Kentucky-Ohio Council of Carpenters.)

JHS offers 18 different Advanced Placement courses. (Over 200 students are enrolled for the 2014-15 school year.)

JHS offers an extensive list of CTE opportunities (Career and Technical Education). (Students can earn dual credit and certifications in Fire and Rescue, Culinary Arts, Cosmetology, Advanced Technology, Advanced Manufacturing, Automotive Services, Construction Technology, Sustainable Energy Alternatives, Welding Technology and Health Sciences.)

JHS offers an array of performing arts opportunities including six levels of choirs in addition to marching band, orchestra, wind ensemble, jazz band, music composition and three different levels of dance classes.

JHS offers an array of visual art classes from 2D art to painting, ceramics, fiber arts, photography and digital design.

JHS offers six foreign languages including Russian, Japanese and Chinese.

JHS offers over 40 clubs and activity opportunities for students to be involved in beyond our music and varsity athletic programs.

JHS offers all 20 of the IHSAA team sports.

Just of few of the many opportunities that make JHS such a special place to learn. We hope you and your child are as excited about the start of the 2014-15 school year and all of the exciting opportunities they will experience, as we are. Enjoy the final few days of summer vacation. We look forward to the reuniting of the Broncho Nation on August 12th
