Welcome to the Proud Home of the Mustangs

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.


A Message from Our Principal

Mustang Families,

It is hard to believe spring is here! We continue our mission to provide a well-rounded educational environment for our students. We have a lot going on during the fourth quarter. We wish our season four sports good luck, and we hope all the students taking the science trip to California have a great time! 

AIMS Testing 
The state mandated AIMS test is right around the corner on April 7-11. These reading, writing, math, and science assessments are required of students in grades three through ten. The state determines when we administer these tests and the order in which we must give them. 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. We will start with the seventh grade writing and eighth grade science test on Monday and then the students will take the reading and math AIMS tests Tuesday through Thursday. As a school, we will provide snacks on Monday. We encourage you to help your child get plenty of sleep and eat a good breakfast during the testing week. Please feel free to send your child with a healthy snack, fruit, veggie sticks, or nuts. We will provide gum to chew for students during the math test only on Tuesday and Thursday, April 8 and April 10.

Thanks 
We send a great big thank you out to Mr. Perryman for his generous donation! Mr. Perryman volunteers each week in Ms. Januszewski’s classroom because he feels Flowing Wells Junior High is an amazing place for students to learn and experience life. He identified a need for continued support of the junior high staff and students and presented a generous donation to go specifically for student and staff incentives. Summer Learning Lab (SLL) students at FWJH must pass semester classes in order for us to promote them to the next level. This summer, students who do not pass semester one or semester two classes will be required to attend an extended school year in order to make-up the credits. SLL will run for six weeks from June 2-July 10 each day Monday through Thursday. We will provide breakfast and lunch to all students.  

Site Council 
There will not be an April meeting due to AIMS testing. Please join us for the next meeting on May 20 at 8:30 a.m.in the front office. All parents are welcome! 
 

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.

Sincerely,

Dr. Parkinson and students

Dr. Kimberley Parkinson
