DAILY HEALTH TIP
Legumes, also known as beans, peas and lentils, are special because they are high in protein and can help us last for a long time between meals without getting hungry. They contain no cholesterol, very little fat, and plenty of fiber. Legumes grow in pods that have string along one side, like a little zipper.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ....
Phillip W.!

PRINCIPAL POINTS
Respect means treating people the way you want to be treated. At JMS we believe that RESPECT is so important that we made it the basis of our 3 school-wide expectations. At JMS, we respect ourselves, respect others, and respect property. Being respectful means saying only kind things about other students, encouraging others and making them feel good about themselves.

At JMS I will ....
