MORNING ANNOUNCEMENTS:

No School tomorrow!!!

Respect yourself. • Respect others. • Respect property.

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

JMS INSTRUCTIONAL FOCUS
Do you know what Jefferson's schoolwide instructional focus is? Ask your teachers!

DRESS CODE
TEACHERS: Please check dress code this morning. Any student who has a dress code violation should be sent to room 110, the Guidance Office. Students will receive detentions for being out of dress code.

Girls may not wear camisoles under their uniform shirts. The only thing that can be worn under a uniform shirt is a plain white t-shirt that is tucked in!

Hoodies may not be worn in class!

September 30th is the last day that shorts and/or capri pants can be worn at school. If the weather is going to be hot, Mr. Zimmers will announce any changes to the dress code.

CAFETERIA NEWS
All food and drink must be kept in the cafeteria. It does not go outside! When you leave the cafeteria, you must go directly outside.

REMINDERS
TEACHERS ~ Please remember to enter eligibility today! Your progress report grades must be submitted by noon Tuesday.

• Students — when guests, administrators, or other teachers enter the classroom, please continue with your lesson. Do not speak to or call out to the visitors, just keep working and paying attention to your teacher.

• Students — please be in your seat when the tardy bell rings! A 3rd tardy will result in 2 full administrative lunch detentions. A 4th tardy will result in an after-school detention. Once you are in the classroom, you must stay in the classroom. If you need a drink or need to use the restroom, go before you enter your next class.

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 must be removed from a classroom that has a "guest" teacher, you will receive a minimum of 2 after-school detentions!

ATTENDANCE CHALLENGE
Attendance at school is very important! Look at the chart posted in the main lobby. We will be having a monthly contest between grades to see which grade can have the best attendance. Right now, 8th grade is in the lead!

BAND/J-JAZZ
6th grade band: 1st hour ~ flutes; 2nd hour ~ trombone & baritone.

All band students should take home their instruments for the long week-end.

J-Jazz will meet after school Monday. You will be practicing the choreography with Mrs. Williams from SEHS.

CHEERLEADING
Girls trying out for cheerleading must report to room 103 immediately after school today.
