This week ~ 1:30PM dismissal!

Cheyenne T., Tymisha S., Gregory D., Jordan A., & Emily K.!

On this day in 1907 in Seattle, 19 year-old Jim Casy borrowed $100 from his friend Claude Ryan in order to start a local delivery service. The business was named the American Messenger Company. Their slogan was "Best service, and lowest rates." The company became very successful and is now known as the United Parcel Service. You know ~ the big brown trucks with UPS written on them!

Main Entree: Spicy Chicken Sandwich; Au Gratin Potatoes; Green Beans
Monday's Breakfast: Cheese Omelets

Today will be an outside day unless it begins to rain. You will be asked if you want to participate in the following: walk & talk, football, swings/monkey bars, basketball, soccer, or jump rope. Standing around is not permitted!

7th/8th Girls Basketball ~ Try outs will be September 2nd from 2:30-4PM. Make sure you have a current physical and athletic card filled out and signed before you try out.

All 6th grade students need to have a physical in order to remain in school.

Today your teachers will be teaching more of our building expectations. Please remember to stay on the right side when walking in the halls. Also, when you come inside, use quiet voices!

Attention all 7th and 8th grade students ~ If you missed the chance to purchase last year's edition of the yearbook, there are still a few left. They are $23 and can be purchased from Ms. J-C in room 115.

You may still purchase uniform polos or JMS t-shirts to wear to school games or on special days. The supply is limited! See Ms. Stewart in room 202.

You received fundraiser information in your first day packet. Take orders from family members and friends. Be sure to collect the money for the order when you take the order. All checks should be made payable to Jefferson Middle School. Orders will be accepted through September 9th and delivery will be October 13th. No late orders will be accepted!

Be polite and say thank you to those who choose to support JMS by placing an order!
