Julesburg High School’s newly elected Student Council had their first meeting today! Members are busily preparing for Homecoming week!
The Sophomore Class at JHS works diligently on their fall NWEA test. Students met with their individual teachers to obtain their scores from last spring to set new goals for themselves for this fall’s testing session. Today the students are taking the Language Usage Test. Once the test is submitted the students know immediately if they have obtained their goal.
We had noteworthy (pun intended) evening as our 5th grade musicians picked out their new instruments for the school year and hopefully for a lifetime. Did you know science has shown that music training can change brain structure and function for the better? It also improves long-term memory and can lead to better brain development for those who start at a younger age (Inc. Incorporated: www.inc.com)

The JHS Show Choir had their first day of choreography with a local dance teacher. The students are working hard to begin to put their show together.
Second grade is starting their math module on equal groups. They were given random numbers of cubes and told to make equal groups. They then had to find an example of a student that had an odd amount of blocks and an even amount of books. This is the basis for multiplication!
Students Kyle Brandt, Austin Buchholz, and Nicole Welch are hard at work range judging under the guidance of Kelly Reichman. They are practicing for the Regional Range Judging FFA contest next week by identifying grass types and evaluating rangeland sites. Keep up the hard work!

We started Second Step lessons this week! Elementary students get to learn social emotional and learning skills through whole group counseling lessons every week. This week some of the primary groups read the book, “The Day You Begin,” which celebrates our differences and similarities, as well as recognizes some of the struggles we have at school. Learning to be our own brave selves helps us be proud of who we are. All groups were taught the role of the school counselor and how to request to meet with the counselor when needed.
