If you try out for a team of your favorite sport and don't make it, don't become discouraged! See if you can join a non-competitive club for that sport, and practice hard so you can try again next year. And you don't need to do team sports to be fit. You can do activities like biking, swimming, yoga, and jogging.

Did you know that 85% of the students at JMS are considered bystanders? Bystanders are the people who stand by and watch bullying take place. If you witness a bullying situation, the best thing you can do is to tell the bully to stop. If you don't think you can do that then you can walk away and refuse to watch the bullying and take your friends with you. If yo take the bully's audience away from him/her they are less likely to continue bullying.

At JMS I will ....
Discipline &
to show my Jaguar PRIDE!
