WELLNESS WAKEUP CALL
The Ugli fruit may have a bad name, but the Durian fruit from Asia has a very bad smell. However, it has a creamy delicious flavor & tastes a little like pudding. It also has a very pointy & strange looking hard shell that could hurt your fingers. Some hotels do not allow this fruit because of its smell. But if you ever get a chance to try it, remember that even though it smells bad, it tastes really good!
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.”
