Welcome to Flowing Wells Jr. High school, home of the proud Mustangs--the strong and mighty ones! We have great school pride and proudly wear our blue and gold. We're glad you're here to visit and learn more about our junior high school.
We have the pleasure of teaching your 7th and 8th graders every day. We've been here since 1976, and our teachers look forward to each year they have to spend time with your children. We want students to know and believe that learning is fun and the right attitude brings success. With just around 800 students, our teachers stay attentive as they teach each one of your children.
Flowing Wells Jr. High is located in the "Urban Fringe of a Large City," namely Tucson, AZ. With tons of community involvement, it's a wonderful location to educate your children and feel good about entrusting them in our care each day.
Please spend a few moments in this site to stay familiar with the school, its calendar and events, or anything else that interests you. Our FAQ page will help you find basic answers to your questions. If you can't find something you need to know, please contact us.
We encourage parents to check on student progress using their student’s WorldByMe account. This tool allows parents and students to discuss their student’s grades, progress, and allows parents and students to contact the teachers through e-mail.
Third Quarter grades will be mailed home Monday, March 10. We will dismiss students at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, March 13-14, for Parent/Teacher Conferences. Teachers will be available both days from 1:00-3:00 p.m. to meet with parents. If necessary, you may also call the teacher(s) and schedule a specific appointment time. We encourage you to use this time to learn how your child is doing in class.
Please plan to join us for our next Site Council Meeting on Tuesday, March 18, 2014, at 8:30 a.m. in the office conference room. Bring a friend.
Ninth Grade Registration
Eighth graders will be registering for the high school a new way this year during the month of March. Parents, join us for High School Night on Monday, March 10 at 6:00 p.m. in the High School Auditorium to meet the Flowing Wells High School administrators. Learn about registration, classes, and expectations from the high school. On Monday, March 10 and Tuesday, March 11, eighth graders will gather in the auditorium to watch a high school orientation video and then get registration packets. On Thursday and Friday, March 13 and 14 students will take a trip in their assigned groups to tour the high school from 8:30-11:30 a.m. On Thursday, March 20 and Friday, March 21, eighth graders will register for their classes online with the FWHS counselors.
Eighth Grade Registration
Our current seventh graders will meet with counselors and administrators during the week of March 3. They will bring home elective selection sheets requiring a parent signature. Then they will register for their classes online with the JH counselor and Mrs. Dale. Please speak with your child about his/her selections for next year.
Festival Under the Stars
Mark your calendar, come out, and enjoy a family fun festival Friday, April 4 at Flowing Wells High School in the commons area. There will be great games and lots of family entertainment. Hope to see you at this year’s Flowing Wells School District event – Festival Under the Stars.
The state-mandated AIMS test is right around the corner, April 7-11. These Reading, Writing, Math, and Science assessments are required of students in grades 3-10. The state determines when these tests must be administered and the order in which they must be given. Parents, we ask and appreciate that you not make plans for extended trips that would prevent your child from being here for the tests. All students must take the AIMS test. Encourage your child to try his/her best on each section.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, the team at FWJHS would love to help. Feel free to contact your student’s teacher or myself at 696-8552.
