JMS Daily Announcements

Monday, October 24, 2016

• OUTSIDE DAY FOR LUNCH BREAK UNLESS THE WEATHER DOES NOT ALLOW •

Remember ~ your day is what you make it. Let's make it a great one!

Wellness Wakeup Call
A 16-ounce bottle of orange juice is equivalent to drinking the juice from 6 oranges. It is better to drink smaller portions. Even if a juice is 100% juice, drinking too much of it puts too much natural sugar into our bodies. That sugar is intended to be consumed along with the fiber that is present in fruit. When you do drink 100% juice, drink it in small quantities, for example, 8 ounces or less.

Photos & Videos
Students may NOT take photos or videos while on the school grounds. There are several JMS students who may not be photographed or videoed by law. If you are asked to stop or asked to surrender your phone, you must comply. If you do not, your parent/guardian will be called and will have to come to school.

Lockers ~ Make sure you have your locker information and combinations. Lunch interventions/detentions will be issued for those who continually come to the office. You may NOT leave your binders or book bags on the floor by your locker. If you do, your bag or binder will be taken to the lost and found by the gym.

Trash on the Playground - There is too much trash being thrown on the ground after breakfast and after lunch. If you take food items outside, you MUST place your trash in the trashcans. If the extreme littering continues, no snack items will be sold during lunches.

Hall Passes - If you are in the hallway during class time, you must have a pass or be with a supervising adult. NO exceptions!

Bathroom Passes - Remember ~ you only have 12 bathroom passes per quarter. Use them wisely. Do not walk out of class if your teacher asks you to wait.

Box Tops 4 Education
Once a month there will be a drawing of 8 names for a chance to win a certificate for a free item from snack attack. If you are interested in entering, just bring in 10 unexpired boxtops attached to a "dollar" form and turn in to your 1st hour teacher. You can get a "dollar" form from your teacher or the Jaguar News in the main lobby. Make sure you put your first and last name and your 1st hour teacher's name on the form. Please turn in "dollars" to Mrs. Beebe.

Technology Acceptable Use Policy Forms
Tech AUPs were sent home last week. This form must be signed by the student and his/her parent/guardian and returned to JMS. No technology may be used in the building until a signed form is returned. Please get those forms returned ASAP.

ATHLETIC NEWS
