Respect yourself. • Respect others. • Respect property.

Remember: It is not ok to disrupt class. It is not ok to be hurtful to others!

Keep your hands, feet & other objects to yourself!

ISATs begin today!
Attendance is very important! There will be a reward dance during 7th hour on Thursday, March 20th, for all students who have perfect attendance during ISAT week.

TRACK
JMS track begins tomorrow after school from 2:30-4PM. You need three things to be eligible to run track:
1. a current physical
2. signed and completed athletic form
3. proof of insurance
You need to be dressed properly — no jeans or school clothes — and ready to run immediately after school in the gym.

BOWLING FOR TECHNOLOGY
A great time was had by all on Sunday night at Laketown Lanes! Several students and JMS staff members came to join in the fun. JMS raised $532 to be used for technology needs. Thank you to all who participated! We look forward to having many more "Bowling for Technology" nights.

REMINDERS
This is a reminder to ALL students to keep their hands to themselves while at school.

• Students — please be in your seat when the tardy bell rings!

Hallway behavior is very important. If you run, hit, curse, etc. in the halls, you will receive an after-school detention for 1 1/2 hours. You will also receive one if you roam the halls during class time.

BIST ~ Teachers are only going to redirect you once! After that, if you do not follow proper classroom procedures, you will be asked to move to the "Safe Seat" in the classroom. Please move to the Safe Seat without arguing. There will be consequences for being sent out of the classroom to a Buddy Room or Recovery.

If you are asked to go to the Safe Seat and you refuse, you will receive at least 2 after-school detentions!

Guest teachers are aware of our BIST procedures. Please respect our guest teachers.

Remember our school expectations:
Respect Yourself • Respect Others • Respect Property

READING COMPREHENSION IS OUR FOCUS!
