• OUTSIDE DAY FOR LUNCH BREAK UNLESS THE WEATHER DOES NOT ALLOW •
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!
THE LIBRARY IS CLOSED THIS WEEK DUE TO THE BOOK FAIR. DO NOT ENTER THE LIBRARY! YOU MAY ONLY ENTER THE LIBRARY WITH YOUR CLASS THAT IS GOING TO THE BOOK FAIR.
IF YOU HAVE A BOOK TO RETURN, GIVE IT TO YOUR TEACHER. THERE WILL BE NO BOOK CHECK OUT UNTIL THE RED SIGNS ON THE LIBRARY DOORS ARE DOWN!
7TH GRADE SCIENCE FIELD TRIP
The 7th grade science field trip to Lincoln Memorial Gardens will be today. Participating students will be called out of class toward the end of 1st period. We will be returning around noon. Students will eat lunch upon returning and then will go to class.
WELLNESS WAKEUP CALL
Did you know the normal American diet contains nearly two times the required amount of protein? Thus, protein powders and shakes are unnecessary. Obtaining protein from natural protein sources can meet the requirement needed.
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.
All personal grooming items should be kept in your locker. This includes combs, brushes, picks, cologne, lotion, lip gloss, glitter, etc.
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.
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!
You only have 12 bathroom passes per quarter. Use them wisely. Do not walk out of class if your teacher asks you to wait.
We are conducting hallway sweeps! Get to class on time. If you are tardy, you will be instructed to go to one of the offices where you will call your parent and then be issued consequences.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY 🎂

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