Important First Week of School Info

Dear Gryphon Families,
We are looking forward to the start of school on Thursday.  Here are just a few reminders of important happenings of next week.
The PowerSchool portal will open at noon on Monday, August 12.  All returing students can view and print their schedules from the online portal.  All new students to TJ will receive information at orientation on how to access the portal.

Monday, August 12, will be orientation for rising 9th graders and high school students new to TJ  from 5-6 in Leitner Auditorium. Following the formal session, you will have the opportunity to visit your student’s classrooms and meet the teachers.  All other high school students and families are welcome to attend an informal meet and greet in the individual teacher’s classroom.

Tuesday, August 13, will be orientation for all rising 6th graders and middle school students new to TJ. To ensure efficiency and allow families adequate time to meet teachers and tour classrooms in our newly renovated hall, we must divide the students into two groups.  All other middle school students and families are welcome to attend an informal meet and greet in the individual teacher’s classroom.

Students whose last name begins with A-J will report to the auditorium at 5:30.

Students whose last name begins with K-Z will report to John Adams hall and the teachers will direct you at 5:30
Students report to school on Thursday, August 15, as their first full day.  Our first bell rings at 7:45 with our tardy bell at 7:50. Students will report directly to homeroom on the 15th.
Students arriving before 7:40 are to report to the middle school gym (grades 6-9) or the high school gym (grades 10-12).
