Early College Notes October 7th

JPEC In The News!

A huge thank you is due to Mrs. Sager, for organizing a forum discussion between JPEC Health Pathway students and Dr. Trimble, Henry Ford Allegiance oncologist. Please read the write up as seen in the Hillsdale Daily News!

Homecoming Success!

Kudos to Ms. Guthrie and the entire Early College student government! Homecoming was a great success due to careful planning and thorough communication. I was very impressed. -Mr. Marowelli

Graduation Applications

It was my desire to have digital graduation applications ready to go out by today, but due to some formatting issues with Google Forms, they will not be ready until next week. They should be simple and easy to complete, but in anticipation, if you are preparing to graduate this year, please make sure you are ready to document your success within the following:

  • 4 units of English
  • 4 units of Science, including Biology & Chemistry
  • 4 units of Social Studies, including US History, World History, Civics, & Econ
  • 3 units of Math, including Alg 1, Geometry, & Algebra 2
  • 2 units of Art
  • 1 unit of health
  • 1 unit of PE (per State law, this cannot be dual credited through dual enrollment)
  • 2 units of foreign language studies (one may be from elementary - middle school)

Title I Forms

There are still many Free & Reduced Lunch (Title I) forms that have yet to be returned. These forms are essential to securing funding that helps support student learning at JPEC. Even if you know you don't qualify, and don't wish to disclose income levels, returning the form to us with "Does not qualify" written on it allows us to know we're properly tracking our student demographic population. The first two EC focus groups that get 100% of Title I forms returned will get a half day field trip!

Student of the Week

Ben Putnam is my Student of the Week! His hard work and musical progress are already apparent this term as he strives to perfect each of his parts. His skills on the snare drum have grown tremendously, which is a testament to his growth mindset and positive attitude. His focus in class is representative of his high level of maturity as he continually sets the bar for his peers. It has been and continues to be a privilege to have Ben be a part of our music program at JPEC.

Travel with JPEC!

Interested in visiting London, Paris, Florence and Rome in 2021? Did you miss the first information session? Visit or email Ms. Shirk! sarah.shirk@gmail.com Students and parents signing up now will lock in the lowest rates for traveling.

Lunches, Health, and Agriculture

Mr. Marowelli & Ms. Shaw have hired on two student interns, Madelyn Schmidt & Megan Panik, to help lead a long-term project designed to bring fresh, local food and health education to JPEC students. The CDC tells that there is a high correlation between healthy students and good grades, higher standardized test results, graduation rates, & attendance. If you're a parent or student interested in helping with this project, or have connections or resources that would be helpful, please send them to jonathon.marowelli@jacksonpec.org

Picture Day is Tuesday! All students will have their pictures taken, so that picture student IDs can be made.
