Well, we welcomed 2017 with a snow day! I know we have been in a drought and Mother Nature seems to want to make it all up in a matter of days! The coming of 2017 also brings to QJSHS a new principal, Marty Ofenham. He was on campus starting Monday, Jan. 9th. He will be in and out of meetings as he transitions into his new position. I will introduce him to the staffat our faculty meeting on Jan. llth and to the student body on Jan. 13th. Mr. Ofenham would like to meet with parents and community members as well. He has set aside the morning of January 19th from 7:30am-8:30am for "Coffee with the Principal" and that evening from 5:30pm-6:30pm to "Meet and Greet." Both opportunities to meet with Mr. Ofenham will be held in the school library. If you are unable to make either of the times on Jan. 19th, I am sure there will be many opportunities in which to meet him. The end of the semester is Friday, January 20th.
