Respect yourself. • Respect others. • Respect property.

Remember: It is not ok to disrupt class. It is not ok to be hurtful to others!

Keep your hands, feet & other objects to yourself!

Do you know what Jefferson's schoolwide instructional focus is? Ask your teachers!

TEACHERS: Please check dress code this morning. Any student who has a dress code violation should be sent to room 110, the Guidance Office. Students will receive detentions for being out of dress code.

7th graders who have PE 1st hour: you must come to school in dress code and then change into your PE clothes!

Main Entree: BBQ Riblets; French Fries; Cole Slaw

A la Carte will be open!

There will be a nacho sale today during all lunch shifts. Nachos will be sold for $1.

J-Jazz will meet today after school. Attendance will determine if we go to competition. All members MUST attend today!

All 8th grade students should return the AVID forms by Thursday and their high school registration forms by Friday. Please give them to Mrs. Lawrence.

• 6th grade volleyball: NO practice today due to the 7th/8th grade volleyball game. Please see Mrs. P. at lunch to pick up your February gym schedules.

• Good luck to the 7th & 8th grade volleyball teams as they compete against Christ the King today at 4PM at Jefferson. Any 7th or 8th grade volleyball player that needs to stay after school should be in room 206 by 2:35PM. Bring homework with you to work on. If you are going home after school, you need to be back here by 3:30PM.

• If anyone is interested, we have YMCA flag football registration forms in the main office.

Congratulations to all for a great Science Fair last night! We had a good crowd considering the weather was not good. There will be pictures posted on the JMS web page today.

Please remind your parents that we will be having parent/teacher conferences tomorrow from 3-7PM. Parents will have the opportunity to meet with your team of teachers in the designated classrooms.

This is a reminder to ALL students to keep their hands to themselves while at school.

• Students — please be in your seat when the tardy bell rings!

Hallway behavior is very important. If you run, hit, curse, etc. in the halls, you will receive an after-school detention for 1 1/2 hours. You will also receive one if you roam the halls during class time.

BIST ~ Teachers are only going to redirect you once! After that, if you do not follow proper classroom procedures, you will be asked to move to the "Safe Seat" in the classroom. Please move to the Safe Seat without arguing. There will be consequences for being sent out of the classroom to a Buddy Room or Recovery.

If you are asked to go to the Safe Seat and you refuse, you will receive at least 2 after-school detentions!

Guest teachers are aware of our BIST procedures. Please respect our guest teachers.

The following students have had their PRIDE tickets drawn and have won a coupon for a free Pizza Hut personal pan pizza. You may pick it up in the main office after school today.
