Mt. Healthy Jr/Sr High Families-

It is hard to believe the 1st grading period is at a close.  Students will be receiving their report cards on Tuesday, October 25.  The staff at the Jr/Sr High School continues to emphasize how important a great start is for a successful school year.  Take a moment to review your child’s progress  and be sure to reach out to child’s teachers if you have questions about their academic progress.

Also, the Ohio Department of Education recently released district and state report cards.  Report cards for the district, junior high and high school can be viewed using the links below. 
Although the results outlined by these report cards may be startling, please be assured the Mt. Healthy Jr/Sr High School is moving forward with a plan of action to improve our overall academic performance.  This includes using assessment results to modify instruction and develop systems of support for all students.  We are also looking at data and interventions for other factors that negatively impact academic achievement, such as truancy and student discipline.   Our plan of action supports the district strategic plan, Education Destination.

Finally, it is never too early to begin thinking about state graduation requirements.  This year’s seniors will be the last cohort of students to follow the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) requirements.  Starting with this year’s juniors, students will be expected to meet one of three graduation options:
Our school counselors will continue to review these expectations with students and monitor their progress with meeting the requirements.  Feel free to contact the building with questions about changes in the state graduation requirements.

Enjoy the fall weather!!!

Dear Fighting Owls-

The Jr-Sr High is off to a great start!  The staff is excited to be working with such an enthusiastic group of students this year.  There are a lot of great things taking place in the building, from engaging instructional lessons to career / college planning to the many extra and co-curricular activities.  We are extremely proud of our new restorative discipline practices through a program called “Give ‘em Five”.  This year is about building relationships in order to foster student success!

A few housekeeping notes:

  • Traffic is a little heavy in the morning due to modified start times. All students are to be in 1st bell by 7:40am.  We allow students to enter the building through the cafeteria at 7:20am.  Please take extreme care when driving through our parking lots.
  • Progressbook is available for parents and students to monitor grades throughout the year. Call Ms. Watson or Ms. Herlinger if you need assistance with logging into Progressbook @ 513-728-0130.
  • We encourage all parents to have daily discussions about the school day with their student(s). It’s a good practice habit to stay up-to-date on what’s going on with your child as the needs of adolescents are constantly changing.  Reach out to our teachers, counselors or administrators if you need assistance.
The fall athletic season is well underway. Please visit for weekly schedules of athletic events. Additionally, the Mt. Healthy HS athletic department is selling punch cards - $40 for adults; $20 for students. These cards are used for admissions to Mt. Healthy athletic events ONLY. Contact Ms. Cross or Ms. Tuck @ 513-728-7648.

Finally, SAVE THE DATE:  Graduation for the Class of 2017 – May 24, 2017, 6:00pm @ Owl Stadium!

Mt. Healthy Families-

It is amazing how fast the summer flies by! I hope everyone had a great summer with family and friends. I’m sure many of you are switching back to “school mode” and are ready to get the 2016-17 school year off to a great start! I’m excited to be leading the Jr/Sr High for the second year and look forward to making this a successful year for all!
