Hello CJSHS Community,

What an interesting time to be a Cowboy! First, I want to welcome everyone to the 2020-21 school year. I hope that you and your students are healthy and safe during this Pandemic. We hope that they are getting ready to come back to Chimacum Jr./Sr. High School to learn, grow and be successful. We look forward to working with you and your students during these strange times.   

We are welcoming new staff to the CJSHS family this year.  Brett Thomsen is going to be joining Ms. Bonnell as one of our science teachers.  Mr. Thomsen is returning to Chimacum after teaching overseas in Croatia. We feel very lucky to have both of these highly skilled science teachers as part of our excellent staff.  Also, Stephanie Tell will be joining us as our second counselor.  She comes to us from the North Kitsap area and will do an excellent job working with our students. We are excited to have these folks as a part of the CJSHS family. 


A lot of work has been going on in our building this year.  We will be checking out computers to each student for the year. Maintenance is helping prepare the building so the 7-9 grade students will have clean, safe rooms.  


As the year progresses, we ask parents and guardians to please stress the importance of engaging in school and taking an active role in their students' learning. Please feel free to reach out to staff if you have any concerns about your child’s education. Parental input and collaboration are things we strongly value and encourage in our school community. It takes a team approach to provide a safe and structured learning environment for all of our students.


I look forward to working with each of you to make this school year a success. Remember, it’s always a great day to be a Chimacum Cowboy. See you soon!
