• Library - Learn Forever
     
    When everyone is a learner, there is no end to success 
     
    Welcome to the Janitell Learning Center! Our mission is to provide resources that promote collaboration and critical thinking in order to push learners of all ages to excel in academics, interests, and self-reflection. We believe anything is possible with the right approach, and that the right approach can only be found through effective collaboration. Working together, there is nothing we can not accomplish.
  • JJHS Battle of the Books (JBOB)
    2017 - 2018 marks the first year of JBOB. Janitell's version of Battle of Books. Jags will compete against their teachers and other grade-levels to win the title for book champion! Why not spend 20 minutes a day working on the list? Stories draw us in because they both help us escape from and understand our own lives.
