CHECK OUT OUR CLOSED CAPTIONS added to the JHS Student News thanks to the suggestion of Sophia Lima, the projects director for the No Place for Hate Club. Although the script should be posted in your 1st Period Google Classroom and on JupiterHighSchool.org, Sophia said it would be “really helpful to ESOL students learning English, hard of hearing students and staff, and those with sensory processing issues who may find it hard to understand the announcements in a loud classroom with other distractions”. So thank you Sophia for your suggestion. We’re happy to help!
