News & Announcements

STAAR Testing This Week

Eighth grade students will be taking the Science and Social Studies STAAR tests this week.

The Science test will be given on Tuesday, April 23rd.

The Social Studies test will be given on Wednesday, April 25th.

These are important assessments of students’ academic progress and the primary way the state of Texas evaluates our campus, so we want each student at their very best when they take them. Getting a good night’s sleep and eating a healthy breakfast certainly helps, since the testing period each day is approximately four hours.

It’s important to note that students who are testing cannot be signed-out of school during the testing period, which ends at 11:45 a.m.

Students are welcome to bring water in a screw-top or sport-top container, but every tester will be provided a small snack and bottled water as they test and may take breaks as needed to get water or use the restroom. During this week’s testing day, there will be no morning tutorials or other before-school activities.

It's important to note that seventh grade students will follow their normal schedule during the days eighth graders are testing.

If you have any additional questions about testing, please contact our Assessment Coordinator, Holly Robertson, at

7th Grade Math students reviewing probability

The 7th grade math students at MJH are reviewing key skills and concepts from the year to show what they know before moving on to 8th grade. Students competed with each other in a showdown of probability practice starting with a minute to work each problem individually before working as a team to determine the correct answer. As the groups work through the game, the teacher highlighted important academic vocabulary and possible approaches to solving the problems.

Teachers of the Quarter

Right before Spring Break, students were given the chance to nominate a teacher at MJH who has made a positive impact on their lives. When the final nominations were tallied, Mrs. Coldwell, Mrs. Adami, Mrs. Betts, and Mrs. Skinner were our students' choice for the MJH Teacher of the Quarter Award!

VNPS in Math

The MJH Math Department has been focused on research-based instructional practices to improve the depth and retention of key grade-level concepts. One practice is using Vertical Non-Permanent Surfaces (VNPS) to get kids up and interacting with the content and each other. Based on Liljedahl’s book, Building Thinking Classrooms in Mathematics, using various types of VNPSs helps students have less fear of taking risks because mistakes are easily erased. The strategy also gives teachers better access to watch students’ thinking and processing, which increases opportunities for feedback. Students can be seen using the whiteboards inside and outside the classroom daily at MJH!

Cheer Competition Win

MJH Cheer competed for the first time in school history at the Stockton Cheer Competition. The team, led by Payton Beaver and Maelani Sims, won Best Spirit for the entire competition and placed 2nd in the dance category. MJH Cheerleaders attend sporting and community events throughout the year.
