Last week the SSA and advisers were trained on how to intervene, redirect, and handle conflict in ways that deescalate the situation.  There are a lot of miss conceptions about what a SSA does.  They are not tattle-tails.  SSA ambassadors are trained to take an active role in identifying and intervening with bullying, harassment, etc. To learn more about Safe School Ambassadors contact our counselor, Mrs. Contreras, elcontreras@wuesd.org

We had our first agenda check and only two students did not have their agenda with them.  No doubt that TJ students are preparing themselves for high school, college, and for lives as professionals.  Thank you to all the teachers for preparing the weekly agenda and to the parents for helping us build responsible and organized students.

Many students were able to observe the eclipse with specially designed lenses thanks to the science department and others.  Safety First!!! Through the lenses students were able to see over 75% of the sun get covered by the passing moon.  What a great experience.

It was great to see the students and parents come out today and find their way around campus.  A BIG WELCOME BACK!!! Teachers did a fine job of engaging students with icebreakers and getting students familiar with routines and procedures.  The students and staff did a wonderful job adjusting to the bell system failure.  Teachers were impressed by the student's sense of urgency to get to class.  Thursday should be just as impressive as today.
