         Remember ~ Your day is what you make it. Let’s make it a great one!

WELLNESS WAKEUP CALL

Do you ever help make food at your house? We can prepare food by cooking it although some of the healthiest foods we can eat don't need cooking — like fruits, raw veggies, nuts and seeds. Making food can be lots of fun!

 

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.”

In addition, jackets, sweatshirts, & hoodies should not be worn around the waist. Hoodies and jackets are not allowed in the classroom. Sweaters must be a solid color with no zippers or hoods. Layered shirts under your polo must be a solid color.

 

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

You may only go to your locker before school, before lunch, after lunch, and after school. You may not go to your locker between classes. Be sure you are prepared for class!

 

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

Autumn C.!

 

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.
