JMS Daily Announcements

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

•  OUTSIDE DAY FOR LUNCH BREAK UNLESS THE WEATHER DOES NOT PERMIT  •  1:30PM DISMISSAL TODAY  •

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

WELLNESS WAKEUP CALL

You can make an easy breakfast for yourself or someone else without even turning on the stove. Just take a piece of fruit, such as an orange, or pour a glass of fruit juice. Then put two pieces of bread into the toaster and after it is toasted, spread each piece of toast with a tablespoon of peanut butter. This gives you protein and iron to build your muscles and blood, B vitamins for energy, and vitamin C to keep you healthy.

 

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!

BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS
