2018-19 Orientation Info

June 13, 2018

For all families who will attending Luther Jackson next year, we wanted to make you aware of a few important orientation dates below.

All rising 7th graders and any 8th graders who are new to Luther Jackson are invited to attend a new student orientation on Thursday, Aug. 23, from 9-11 a.m.  The Orientation bus schedule will be sent home in August.

The LJMS Tiger Time orientation event will be Tuesday, Aug. 21 (for students whose last name begins with A-L), or Wednesday, Aug. 22 (for students whose last name begins with M-Z), both from 3-6 p.m. This is not a required event, but we welcome you to attend. If you cannot attend your assigned evening, you may attend either day. If you come, both parent and student must attend. You can come anytime between 3 and 6 p.m. and should plan to stay about 60–90 minutes. You may want to bring multiple checks for payments. Cash is also accepted. Here are examples of what you can do at Tiger Time:

  • PICK UP YOUR CLASS SCHEDULE if all required forms are completed.
  • Fill out mandatory forms and get a head start on the school year.
  • Walk the building to orient yourself for class locations.
  • Buy your PE uniform.
  • Put money on your student’s lunch account.
  • Sign up for our PTA and meet new PTA board members.
  • Sign up for your SIS ParentVue account

Mark your calendars for the Luther Jackson Back to School Night, which will take place on the evening of Wednesday, Sept. 5. More info will be sent in August.
