Dear Families of Olympus Jr. High School:

On behalf of the entire Olympus Junior High School staff, we want to thank the Spartan Family for another terrific school year!  All of us at Olympus look forward to providing a rich learning experience for your child both in and out of the classroom.  We have a tremendous number of opportunities for our students to explore and grow into productive young adults.  We have a number of after school sports and clubs available for students.  There are so many ways for our students to feel connected and involved in school.  School involvement = Academic Success!
Our teachers have a strong focus on providing rigorous instruction - challenging our students at a high level and providing support to students that need it.  Along with our high academic standards, we work very hard to help our students with the social and emotional aspects of their lives.   Our student-centered approach has helped us develop a positive school culture where students feel safe, respected, involved, and taken care of.  As I like to put it, we treat our students as human beings, not just humans doing...
 
I, personally, want to thank everyone for their support in my years as Principal and for their support and encouragement as I served as California's representative for the Assistant Principal of the Year Award in Washington, DC. It was a tremendous honor to represent Olympus Jr. High School and the Eureka Union School District. I have only worked at one school in my career - Olympus - and I feel that the award is a reflection of our school, district, and community in which I serve.  -  National Association of Secondary School Principals Press Release
Our Assistant Principal, Meghan Jinguji, has been busy updating our websites throughout our district.  She is seeing hundreds of hours of her work coming to fruition.  We think our new streamlined design will prove to be a better reflection of the quality of our school district.  Specifically on the Olympus website, our Events Calendar will help you stay up to date with the latest events going on at Olympus.  Our teachers are rolling out brand new websites to better communicate what is happening in their classrooms.  Our students are maximizing their use of Google Apps to efficiently collaborate with their teachers and classmates and manage their work electronically.

Remember, the first school bell rings at 7:45 am and instruction begins at 7:50. School is dismissed at 2:20 pm. District wide collaboration days are Mondays for the purpose of teacher training and planning. Dismissal each MONDAY is at 1:20 pm.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office (782-1667) or email your students' teachers. You can always contact me at shealy@eurekausd.org. We are here to help!

HAIL SPARTANS!
