Labor Day (No School) - Monday, September 4, 2023

Did you know?
New York was the first state to introduce a bill, but Oregon was the first to pass a law recognizing Labor Day, on February 21, 1887. During 1887, four more states – Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York – passed laws creating a Labor Day holiday. By the end of the decade Connecticut, Nebraska and Pennsylvania had followed suit. By 1894, 23 more states had adopted the holiday, and on June 28, 1894, Congress passed an act making the first Monday in September of each year a legal holiday.

Brea Junior High School is one of the finest junior high schools in Orange County! We are a high-performing school where all 950 students are academically challenged and where they are provided with the curriculum, instruction, support, and time they need to meet rigorous academic standards. The curriculum and extracurricular programs here at BJH are motivating, engaging, and tap into our students' interests and curiosity. Students are scheduled to participate in two elective opportunities, in order to explore 21st Century College and Career opportunities. Our students learn to understand important concepts, develop essential skills and apply what they learn to real-world situations. It is going to be an excellent year ahead for your student! 
Being the only junior high school in Brea allows us to exemplify the essence of a community school. When parents become partners in the education process, students benefit in a myriad of ways. I strongly encourage you to utilize the AERIES Parent Portal, which provides parents and students with current attendance records, grades and other useful information regarding student progress. We want all students to be successful here at BJH, so please check the Grade Portal regularly. In addition, we invite all parents to participate in our volunteer programs, including our School Site Council and our Parent Teacher Association (PTA). Lastly, our school's website is a valuable resource and includes links to teacher webpages, school and district information, PTA news, and City of Brea resources/information.
