• OUTSIDE DAY FOR LUNCH BREAK UNLESS THE WEATHER DOES NOT ALLOW • 3rd QUARTER REPORT CARDS WERE SENT HOME YESTERDAY •
Remember ~ Your day is what you make it. Let’s make it a great one!
WELLNESS WAKEUP CALL
A large number of teenagers are now drinking 5 or more cans of soda every day, with each 12 ounce can containing about 10 teaspoons of sugar. Teens also frequently drink the 20 ounce plastic bottles of soda, which can have up to 20 teaspoons of sugar per bottle! This can lead to several pounds of unwanted weight gain in a year.
At JMS, we follow and enforce the District Dress Code Policy. Therefore, “hats, caps, bandannas, sweatbands, sunglasses, pajama pants, slippers, or shoes with wheels attached to the bottom shall not be worn in the buildings.”
PHOTOS & VIDEOS
Students may NOT take photos or videos while on the school grounds. There are several JMS students who may not be photographed or videoed by law. If you are asked to stop or asked to surrender your phone, you must comply. If you do not, your parent/guardian will be called and will have to come to school.
Make sure you have your locker information and combinations. Lunch interventions/detentions will be issued for those who continually come to the office. You may NOT leave your binders or book bags on the floor by your locker. If you do, your bag or binder will be taken to the lost and found by the gym.
TRASH ON THE PLAYGROUND
There is too much trash being thrown on the ground after breakfast and after lunch. If you take food items outside, you MUST place your trash in the trashcans. If the extreme littering continues, no snack items will be sold during lunch shifts.
If you are in the hallway during class time, you must have a pass or e with a supervising adult. NO exceptions!
You only have 12 bathroom passes per quarter. Use them wisely. Do not walk out of class if your teacher asks you to wait.
Please do not send balloons, flowers, candy, cupcakes, etc. to celebrate student birthdays. Students should not wear birthday tiaras, sashes, buttons, etc. as these items are not part of the enhanced dress code. Our goal is to keep to a minimum the number of distractions in the learning environment.
Main Entrée: BBQ Roasted Chicken; Salisbury Steak; Mashed Potatoes
Tomorrow's Breakfast: Donuts

Let’s go JMS ~ Keep on turning in those boxtops! Every single boxtop adds up and is a way to help support our school. Keep up the good work!
