• 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
When we keep a resolution to eat healthier, the cells in our bodies would thank us if they could! Just like a race car needs the right kind of fuel to make it around the track really fast without breaking down, our bodies need the right kind of fuel so we can do what we want to do. Healthy food helps us concentrate in school, have lots of energy for playing, and it helps us to be in a better mood. Good nutrition also helps us to have nicer skin and hair, and strong nails.

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.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Isaac V., Daja B., Luticia N.-C., Avontae D., Joshua H., & Emily H.!

Birthday Celebrations
Please do not send balloons, flowers, candy, cupcakes, etc. to celebrate student birthdays. Students should not wear birthday tiaras, sashes, buttons, etc. as these items are not part of the enhanced dress code. Our goal is to keep to a minimum the number of distractions in the learning environment.
