Welcome to the Junior High Department
Grades 7 and 8 are departmentalized into an 8 period school day from 8:25am to 3pm daily. The students have several teachers over the course of their curriculum:
- Mr. McCarthy is the 8th Grade homeroom teacher. He also teaches 6th, 7th, and 8th grade math and 7th and 8th grade science.
- The 7th Grade homeroom teacher is Mrs. Sanchez. She teaches 7th grade Religion, 7th and 8th grade Language Arts and Literature, and 7th grade Washington State History.
- Mrs. White is the 8th grade American History teacher.
- Mrs. Holroyd teaches 8th grade Religion and PK-8 Physical Education.
7th and 8th graders also participate in Band, Study Skills, Chime Choir, Art, Student Council, Safety Patrol, and other leadership activities. We expect our Junior High students to model good citizenship through participation in Community Outreach and Service Activities such as the Pierce County Hunger Walk, various food bank collections for Thanksgiving and Christmas Baskets, and other service activities that serve the needs of the school and community.
