JMS Daily Announcements

Thursday, February 8, 2018 

•  INSIDE DAY FOR LUNCH BREAK DUE TO THE WEATHER   • 

Remember ~ You are in charge of the choices that you make. Your day is what you make it. Let’s make it a great one!

 

JMS CITIZENSHIP 

Congratulations to Ryan S. for demonstrating all of the qualities of being a good citizen. Ryan found money and immediately turned it in to an adult. Thank you, Ryan, for making good choices!

 

WELLNESS WAKEUP CALL

It is a myth that fat is bad for you. Not all fats are created equally. The fats found in plant foods like nuts and seeds are unsaturated fats — which are good for you, and our body needs them, but you should be careful to not eat too many. Don’t be fat-phobic! Learn more about plant-based fats and their contribution to good health.

 

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.

BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS

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