JMS 2013 Illinois School Report Card

Gallup Student Poll Results

Galllup Student Poll Methodology

"The annual Gallup Student Poll is offered at no cost to public schools and districts in the United States. The online poll is completed by a convenience sample of schools and districts each fall. Schools participating in the annual Gallup Student Poll are not randomly selected and are neither charged nor given any incentives beyond receipt of school-specific data. Participation rates vary by school. The poll is conducted during a designated survey period and available during school hours Tuesday through Friday only. The Gallup Student Poll is administered to students in grades 5 through 12. The primary application of the Gallup Student Poll is as a measure of non-cognitive metrics that predicts student success in academic and other youth development settings.

The overall data from the annual administration of the Gallup Student Poll may not reflect responses from a nationally representative sample of students, and the overall data are not statistically weighted to reflect the U.S. student population; thereby, overall data and scorecards should be used cautiously by local schools and districts as a data comparison. School and district data and scorecards provide meaningful data for local comparisons and may inform strategic initiatives and programming, though the results are not generalizable beyond the universe of the participating school or district."

Fundraiser Information

Schnucks Give Back to Schools Program

Jefferson Middle School will be participating in the Schnucks Give Back to Schools Program! Each month JMS can earn 1%-3% of money back on total purchases at Schnucks.

How it works:
• You shop at Schnucks.
• Pay for your groceries in any way (debt, credit, cash, check, Link, WIC, etc).
• Have them scan your Schnuck's eScrip card. This is a new program so you are going to have to remember to give it to them. They will probably not ask for it.
• JMS will get $$ monthly!

How to sign up:
• Fill out a form from Mrs. McCorkle with your name, address, email.
• She will give you your Schnuck's eScrip card. It comes with 2 cards and 3 key chain cards, so you can give them to other family members too!

What your card is/is not:
• Your card is not a grocery savings card (not like a Max card).
• Your card is only used for JMS to get the monetary perks!

For more information, please visit the Schnucks website.
