Professional Development:  Mr. Mike Brown, Assistant Principal

  • District impressed with NOJH teachers, their knowledge and usage of Canvas.  They also utilize Gimkit and/or Nearpod software programs.  Our teachers are Awesome! 
  • Gimkit is a game for the classroom that requires knowledge, collaboration, and strategy to win.
  • Nearpod is Real-time insights into student understanding through interactive lessons, interactive videos, gamification, and activities.



  • Our students want to support a former student that has cancer and his family.  

S.B.O. Officers, Cheerleaders, and PTSA are taking the lead in this endeavor.  Thank-you.

  • In Wisconsin, a school districts website got hacked.  New definition of a snow day. There is a need for teachers to have hard copy lessons and pens, pencils, and papers for backup.  
  • Concern for teacher burn-out, we rely on them too much and could lose them.  Community Council members are offering to help identify and eliminate some of the teacher’s extra work such as, separate paperwork piles, rip out papers, etc.  Ms. Wendy Long stated that she has tried not to overwhelm the teachers also by passing on important information only to those it pertains to.
  • NOJH Chinese students took the Advanced Placement exam and are #1 in state.  Our students are Amazing!  With our current Chinese teacher leaving next year, possibility of our Chinese students being a part of the interview process for a new teacher.
