Teachers ~ Please check to make sure all students are dressed appropriately. No hoodies are allowed in the classroom. T-shirts under uniform shirts should be white or the same color as the uniform shirt.

Students: there is a tremendous amount of disrespect being shown in the hallways and the classrooms. This disrespect is being directed toward each other and adults. This behavior will not be tolerated. Please remember that swearing at school is not acceptable. Watch your language!

Main Entree: Tacos & Chicken Salad Sandwiches
A la Carte: All drinks except plain water or 100% juice are 50¢. Open for 6th & 7th grade only!

All band students need to remember to take home their instruments over break!

J-Jazz will practice today after school. New members may join in January.

6th grade volleyball practice is from 4 - 5 PM. DO NOT MISS IT! Please do not be late.

Tomorrow, the JMS PTC is sponsoring a Hat Day. If you bring $1, you may wear your favorite hat all day! PTC members will be collecting the money as students enter the building Thursday. You must still wear your school uniform!

21st Century will be selling string cheese for 25¢ during all lunch shifts. The profits will be used to support our troops by buying Silly String. Silly String is being used by the military in Iraq to help detect trip wires on bombs.

Congratulations to the following students! Your PRIDE card has been drawn for a prize that you may pick up after school in the main office.

A big congratulations to the 40 lucky students who were chosen for our Secret Santa Out of the Blue Day this week! Happy holidays to all!

If you choose to come to school out of dress code, you will be issued an after school detention from 2:30-4 PM. For each hour of class that you miss because of being out of dress code, you will be issued an additional after school detention. You could possibly end up with 7 after school detentions!

Teachers — if there is a student in violation of the dress code, please fill out a minor referral and call for an escort to room 110.

Remember our school expectations:
Respect Yourself
Respect Others
Respect Property
