Attention 8th Grade Parents:

It has been a tradition at McCormick that at the end of the 8th grade year, parents organize a "Promotion" dance.  This dance happens in place of a graduation ceremony and is put on by the parents.  The school is not involved.

The dance is scheduled for Saturday, May 20th from 7:00 - 10:00 p.m. at Storey Gym.  Cost is $5.00 and is semi-formal/formal dress.  McCormick students ONLY.


The first parent meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, April 5 at 6:00 p.m. in the MJHS Cafeteria.  There are meetings also scheduled for April 19 and May 3 at 6:00 p.m.  Please plan to attend any of these meetings to help in any way you can.  This dance requires donations, fund raising, decorations, music, photographers, etc.  If you are unable to attend, please email Danae Stampfli at dsinwy@msn.com to be put on a list of volunteers.  Any questions can be sent to her as well.  Thanks for your help.


From the Office:

When your student has an appointment or needs to be released from school, please call the office ahead of time so that we can get your child out of class and have them ready for you when you arrive.  You must come into the school and sign your student out with our attendance clerk.  You are not required to sign your student back in upon return.

Lunch at McCormick runs from 10:41 - 11:49 a.m. each day.  If you need to check your student out during this timeframe and are unable to call ahead,  you may be asked to obtain a visitor badge from our receptionist and collect your student from the cafeteria or the football field outside. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to call our office. 



Upcoming Construction Projects at McCormick

We have been approved for a remodel and facelift for our locker room areas, as well as both the main gym, the auxiliary gym, and the weight room.  Along with renovation of those areas, we will begin installation of artificial turf on our upper football field. 

The projects are much too complicated to take place only during the summer months so we will need to work around them when we return from spring break. 

We will not have access to the Girls' locker room, Gym B, or the west parking/basketball area beginning on April 3rd.  Construction on the main football field is scheduled to begin April 11th.  Our main concern is the safety of our students and our staff and we are taking every precaution we can think of.  If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to call the school.

Information about the Nurses Office from MJHS School Nurse, Brenda Wrede....

There is a School Nurse scheduled at the Junior High and High School every day of the week. Our hours are 7:15-3:15.  We encourage you to have your child seen by the School Nurse prior to deciding to pick them up from school.  If I feel your child is too ill to be at school I will always call you.  If there are things that I can do for your child to make it possible for them to remain in school, I will be happy to assist with that.    My goal is to work with Students and their Parents to create a healthy educational environment and keep students in school. 

Services I can provide for your student:        

1.       Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Cough Drops and TUMS are available in my office and can be given with parent permission (permission given at time of registration) until 2:00 daily.  Please do not send medication (except for inhalers) to school with your student to keep in their backpack or locker. 

 2.      Throat Cultures can be done first thing in the morning for those students who are exhibiting the signs and symptoms of strep throat. 

 3.      I can assess your student when they are in pain or don’t feel well and then communicate my assessment to you so we can make a plan together to meet your child’s needs. 

 4.      I will work with your child and their teachers when medical situations arise that require a change to their daily routine i.e. being on crutches due to an injury or returning to school with a concussion. 


Take a Stand Against Bullying

On October 20th, we had a UNITY DAY at McCormick and asked all our staff and students to wear a McCormick Junior High shirt to unite as a school against bullying.

On October 25th we had a “MIX IT UP” LUNCH DAY. This is a national campaign launched by Teaching Tolerance. It is a way for students, on one designated day, to sit with someone new at lunch and engage them in a positive conversation.  The goal was for students to focus on making connections across boundaries. Tutorial teachers presented a lesson with students prior to October 25th about what questions to ask the person they met to prepare for the event. Students will now reflect on how their conversations went in their next Olweus meeting.   If you are interested in our anti-bullying rules, please visit the link under School Resources and click on Olweus Bullying Prevention.

a mESSAGE FROM mjhs pRINCIPAL,

jEFF cONINE....


Dear Parents/Guardians and Students:

I can’t begin to tell you how proud I am to have the opportunity to serve you as your principal. In my 15 years at McCormick I have seen us grow into, what I believe to be, the finest junior high in the region. Our students demonstrate excellent achievement academically, athletically, and civicly through hard work, determination, and good citizenship.

We have a caring staff that tries to make each and every day a rich and enjoyable learning experience for every student. One of our goals at McCormick is to build a trusting relationship with our students and their families by keeping lines of communication wide open.

Please contact me any time to visit about questions or concerns you may have about your school. I really value your input whether you are a member of the student body, a parent, or community member. Working together, we can ensure success for every student.

Sincerely,

Jeff Conine
