Administrative Staff
A Message From Mrs. Thenell

Dear Lion Families

Welcome to the 2021-22 school year! At TJHS, we believe that there is nothing more important than giving your child the best education possible. School is a place for growing and learning, and our staff works hard to provide a meaningful learning environment for all students. We also believe in balance; school should be an enjoyable place for our staff and students. We celebrate achievements, value kind-spirited humor and competition, focus on effort, and recognize one another’s positive contributions to our school community.

This year, we are returning to a more traditional feel in the building. After 18 months of pandemic learning, it is nice to see students moving freely from classroom to classroom, using lockers, enjoying extra curricular activities, dressing down for PE, and eating with friends in the cafeteria. Each of our students is provided a Chromebook to support their learning both in and out of the classroom. Being a responsible user of technology is just one of the ways that we are preparing our students for life beyond junior high.

We welcome family and community feedback and recognize that your support is vital to our success. If you are looking for ways to be an active part of the Lion family, please call the office for more information. We can be reached at (503) 842-7531.

All the best,

Mrs. Karen Thenell, Principal
