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

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

WELLNESS WAKEUP CALL
When we don’t get enough sleep, it causes a lot of problems. One problem is that it makes us feel more grouchy. It also makes it harder for us to concen- trate, and makes us more forgetful. An- other problem with not getting enough sleep is that it makes us more hungry, and it turns off the messages in our bodies that tell us when we are full — “ so this is a double whammy" — we will want to eat more and not feel full. This leads to extra weight gain. It also makes it harder for us to want to exercise, and makes our skin look not as healthy. Finally, not getting enough sleep means that we are more likely to get sick. Not getting enough sleep causes a lot of problems for us that can affect our health, and makes us not feel well.

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!
No Birthdays Today

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.
