The WVJH Sportsmanship Pledge

We are in it for the kids

At West Valley Junior High, sportsmanship is our top priority.  I encourage you to take the “pledge” to emphasize good sportsmanship above all else.  

Students need to know that integrity, fairness, and respect are lifetime values taught through athletics and that these are the principles of good sportsmanship.

Why do we need good sportsmanship?

By following these simple principles, parents can make proper behavioral choices while viewing their children’s athletic events.

Parents who pledge agree:

The pledge:

Thank you for taking the time improve the overall experience for everyone involved.

Seventh Period is Up and Running

Seventh Period is a great opportunity for students to receive extra help completing homework or missing assignments from 2:40 PM – 3:30 PM, Monday through Thursday each week. Students attending 7th  Period should go to the cafeteria right after the final bell, before 2:40 PM. Students need to sign-in with one of the teachers present. Once signed in, students will go to a classroom to work on homework or missing assignments.  Seventh Period ends at 3:30 PM, so parents need to make arrangements to pick up their student by the front doors.  If you have questions about seventh period please contact Mr. Fawcett or Mr. Griffith.
