JMS Daily Announcements

April 18, 2017

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

• 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

Have you ever wondered what makes some foods like fruity drinks, candy, cereals, and fruit roll ups so brightly colored? As you might guess, artificial colors are added to some foods. While fresh fruits and vegetables are naturally brightly colored, food manufacturers often use artificial colors to make their products look attractive.

 

DRESS CODE

At JMS, we follow and enforce the District Dress Code Policy. Therefore, “hats, caps, bandannas, sweatbands, sunglasses, pajama pants, slippers, or shoes with wheels attached to the bottom shall not be worn in the buildings.”

All earbuds and headphones must be removed and placed in your pocket or binder once you enter the building. You may not wear them around your neck. You may not wear them under your clothing. They will be taken away from you.

 

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 lunch shifts.

 

HALL PASSES

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

 

BATHROOM PASSES

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. Our goal is to keep to a minimum the number of distractions in the learning environment.
