TOOELE JR. HIGH SCHOOL
THE LEGEND OF THE ROADRUNNER
 
   
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!
Mrs. Terry L. Linares, Tooele Jr. High School Principal

School Attendance 
It is important for students to be in school every day, especially as teachers work to increase learning for
all students. 
Parents:  If your student is absent from school, please call the office, 833-1921, to excuse your student.
Improving our attendance rate and decreasing our tardies is a goal for our school, and we need
our students to be in school.  Please try to make appointments for your student(s) after school or on
Monday afternoons if at all possible.  Please check with the school secretary if your phone number has
changed, or if you have an email address that we could access.
Lynn Shaw, our para-professional, is tracking our student attendance.  She will be calling homes each
morning if your student is absent and no contact has been made with the school attendance office.

 

Thank you for your assistance with attendance at Tooele Jr. High School.
