The roadrunner is not the prettiest bird in the world.  He does not soar like the eagles or swoop down on his prey like the hawks.  He does not attract admirers with his beautiful feathers or graceful airs.  He does not sing like the angels or make a lovely sight floating on the lake.  He does not command attention by his looks or demeanor or power.  What is there about the roadrunner?
The little roadrunner is fast.  But that is not what makes him successful.  It may help him get where he wants to go faster.  What he has is direction.  Do you see a roadrunner zigzagging down the road, wondering where to turn next?  No, he’s headed in a straight line, his eye on the prize and single minded in his pursuit.  He has direction.  If there is an obstacle in sight, either the obstacle moves or he goes around it.  Beep!  Beep!  He knows where he wants to go, how to get there, and does not let the obstacles, the anvils, the Wiley Coyotes of the world stop him.   Beep!  Beep!
To Our Students at Tooele Jr. High School:
What is your direction?  Do you know where you are going?  Be like the roadrunner, plan to head in a straight direction, keep your eye on the prize, and do your best!  Be sure not to let any obstacle get in your way.  As we are coming to the end of the school year, don’t let your grades be obstacle.  All 8th grade students preparing to go into high school, you will need a 2.0 G.P.A. with no more than one “F” to participate in high school activities next fall.  Don’t let your grades dictate what you get to do.  7th grade students, it is important for you to get passing grades in all of your classes as well.  Students, you know where you want to go, so be a ROADRUNNER!  KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GOING AND DO EVERYTHING IN YOUR POWER TO GET THERE!

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for supporting your students and the staff in our school.  We have been honored to serve as the principal and assistant principal at Tooele Jr. High School this year.  The students at Tooele Jr. High School are extraordinary in every way.  We have been so impressed by the things they are willing to do.  We thank you, the parents, and thank our community supporters.  Tooele Jr. High School is a great school.  We want to sincerely thank you for allowing us to work with your students.  It has been an honor to know them and learn of their challenges and successes. 
As you know by now, Mr. Bill Gochis will be the principal at our school next year.  He is excited to be in our school and lead our students.  As Mrs. Lori Buhr, our assistant principal, accepted the principal position at Rose Springs Elementary School for next year.  Dr. Dave Whiting will become the assistant principal.  Mr. Gochis and Dr. Whiting are great leaders and will continue to move the school forward in striving for academic excellence. 
Again, thank you for sharing your students with us!  We have been honored to be a part of Tooele Jr. High School.
8th Grade (9th Grade) Jump Start Program
8th grade students entering Tooele High School at the end of this school year will have an opportunity to participate in a “Jump Start Program.”  Students may earn .50 credit of P.E. and .50 credit of Art in the program.  The program is free and begins June 1st and will run through June 11th.  This program allows the students to earn 1.0 high school credits before the school year (2015-2016) begins as they enter 9th grade.  Students may participate in one class or both, depending on student registration.  This is a great program provided for our students, and I would encourage all 8th grade students to participate.  If you are interested in registering, please call the counseling office at Tooele High School, 833-1978, or email Assistant Principal Travis McCluskey at tmccluskey@tooeleschools.org.   The program is free to all students.  You may also contact me, Principal Linares, with any questions you might have.
