From: http://www.jpsonline.org

Dear Parents:

I would like to congratulate our students and staff on an outstanding start to the 2010-2011 school year. It is hard to believe that we are already one month into things, but I am already impressed with each of our classes, their commitment to excellence, their "Attitude of Pride" on campus. The school spirit in the building is impressive and we are certainly proud of our students!

Each month we will be honoring our seniors for their success in the classroom and their determination to make JHS an amazing place for all. The seniors that were honored for the month of September are:

Korey Clement, Tyler Hoezee, Brandon Sikkenga, and Nikki Trammell

Each of them exemplifies the character and tenacity that represents Jenison High School at the highest level.
