Tuesday, November 14, 2017

•  OUTSIDE DAY FOR LUNCH BREAK UNLESS THE WEATHER DOES NOT PERMIT  •  NO 21ST CENTURY PROGRAM AFTER SCHOOL WEDNESDAY  •  

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

WELLNESS WAKEUP CALL

If you have a blender in your kitchen, a good after school snack is a fruit smoothie. Put into the blender a banana, a half cup of fruit such as strawberries, and a beverage such as orange juice or soymilk. Use about a cup of liquid, adding more if you want to make it thinner. Blend until it is smooth and you have a delicious drink that is very good for you. It is especially good if you use a frozen banana. Just peel the banana and freeze it overnight in a bag or container.

 

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.

BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS

Please do not send balloons, flowers, candy, cupcakes, etc. to celebrate student birthdays.
