In December the student government planned and put on a DARE assembly. The teachers signed up for various DARE's that were fun, gross and daring! Mr. Nalette shaved his head into a mohawk and several teachers ate gross food. It was a lot of fun for everyone. The student government announced the final number of money that was raised for our fall funraiser, over 3,000 was collected by the students. What a huge success, a big Thank You goes to everyone that contributed to the fundraiser!
Susan Holman is fair, she sets reasonable boundaries for students and holds them to it. She is very professional and treats students really well. I have never heard her talk poorly of her class. She is always very positive and her classroom is inviting to students. She likes volleyball, reading, and traveling/family vacations. If she wasn't a teacher she would be a nurse. This is her seventh year teaching, but this is her first full year in a while. She loves yoga (she used to be a gymnast). In her free time she likes to paint. If she weren't a teacher she would be a nurse. Thank you Susan for being a positive force at MJHS, it's great teaching with you!
