The Wellness Committee at JMS is happy to announce the date for our 3rd annual Highway to Health day!  On Thursday, May 25th all JMS students will participate in our health day.

Several community agencies, businesses, and volunteers are working hand-in-hand with us to make this a successful day! Activities planned for this year include: 

  • Rethink Your Drink - Memorial Medical Center Outreach Staff

The schedule for grade levels will be published soon. Each grade level will have their own 90 minutes of time for participating in 4 of the 6 HIghway to Healthy sessions. 

Once again, we will have Highway to Health t-shirts for sale. This year's colors are cherry red, jade, purple, and charcoal. Order forms are available in the Jaguar News section of the main lobby, in the library, and in the TV studio [room 116] from Mrs. Gephart.
