CANNED FOOD DRIVE
Way to go JMS! We collected a HUGE amount of canned food this year. This will be put to good use for families in need this holiday season.
Congratulations to Kashia W., Deonna D. & Shirley C. for participating in the Christmas musical this past weekend. The did an awesome job!
Last year's yearbooks are now on sale for the low price of $10! See Ms. J-C in room 115.
YEARBOOK CLUB CONTEST
Yearbook club will be conducting a fundraiser this week during your lunch shifts! Pay a dollar for a chance to match each teacher with their baby picture. The student who matches the most names with pictures correctly will win a gift card!
LOST & FOUND
Be sure to check the lost & found table located in the hallway off of the main lobby. There are many, many items that have been found in the school: hats, gloves, mittens, coats, shoes, shirts, pants, etc. These items will not be here after Winter Break!
If you have moved recently, please give the office the new information. We need your current address and phone contact information.
At JMS, adults are in charge. When you have a guest teacher, you are expected to be respectful and helpful. Disrespect will not be tolerated.
The JMS School Store is open! Come to the main lobby before school and purchase school supplies.
SNACK ATTACK STORE
The Snack Attack Store is in the main lobby for after school before you board the buses. Each snack costs $1.
In order to cut down on the number of students arriving tardy to class, we will continue having hallway sweeps this week. Once the tardy bell has rung, if you are not in class, you will be swept and consequences will be issued.
We will be doing hallway sweeps after school! IF you are not being supervised by an adult, you will be in an all day buddy room.
Just a reminder ~ You may not wear a long-sleeved shirt under your short-sleeved uniform shirt. Girls ~ You may not tie your shirt in the back!
Remember our school expectations:
Respect Yourself • Respect Others • Respect Property
