HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ....
TODAY IN HISTORY
On this day in 1850, the author of Treasure Island and Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was born in Scotland. His name was Robert Louis Stevenson. Stevenson had studied civil engineering and law but decided he preferred writing. His parents weren't happy about that! They had expected him to follow in the family trade of lighthouse keeping!
7th & 8th grade students are not allowed in the 6th grade hallway unless their locker is in that hall, if they have Info Tech in room 116, or SSRW in a classroom in that hall. There will be consequences issued for ignoring this rule.

It has been brought to our attention that it is a safety issue having students sitting on the closed bleachers in the gym. Please DO NOT sit on the closed bleachers. If you are not involved in an activity in the gym and need to sit down, you will have to sit on the floor — not on the bleachers or the stage.
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 Student of the Month Lunch will be held today in the library during regular lunch shifts.
JMS CRAFT FAIR
Jefferson will be holding a craft fair on Saturday, November 21st from 8AM - Noon. Ask your parents to clean out closets and bring in gently used items.
If you do not have a confirmed ride home from after-school activities ~ meaning your own parent or guardian has made arrangements to pick yp up on time from scheduled activities ~ then do not attend! Students without adequate transportation will be banned from attending all after-school activities. This includes participants/players and spectators!
If you are removed from a classroom and are taken to a Buddy Room, you will not be allowed to participate in or attend school basketball games.
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 will cost $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.
Just a reminder ~ Shorts or capris are no longer allowed as uniform choices until next spring. Also, you may not wear a long-sleeved shirt under your short-sleeved uniform shirt. Girls ~ You may not tie your shirt in the back!
You will no longer be allowed to wear colored plastic wrist bracelets at JMS. The colors of the bracelets carry meanings that are not acceptable for our school environment. Consequences will be issued to those who continue to wear the bracelets. Also, you may not wear ponytail elastic bands on your wrists.
Remember our school expectations:
Respect Yourself • Respect Others • Respect Property
