2016 Festival of Trees

November 7, 2016

The JMS tree is up! Art club did a wonderful job on this year's tree. The theme of this year's festival is "Remember When". Art club brainstormed and came up with "Route 66 ~ Old Diners" as the theme of JMS's tree.

Remember when there were no fast food restaurants? Remember when Route 66 was the main highway that connected Santa Monica, California to Chicago, Illinois? Remember when you pulled over to eat and rest at a diner? Remember the music playing over the jukebox? Diner food? Checkered floors? Waitresses on roller skates? We took a trip down memory lane, and the students created ornaments for the tree that illustrates some of the nostalgia of this era.

The festival will be open to the public from Nov. 19- Nov. 27. Please help JMS win the People's Choice Award by voting for our tree!
