Walls of Opportunity Campaign

John Rolfe MS


At JRMS, we believe that all students should strive for greatness. We believe that education plays an instrumental role in creating quality employment opportunities for students in the near future. Present day employers are in need of individuals that can effectively communicate and collaborate, find and evaluate pertinent information, and formulate creative solutions to relevant and complex problems. We also believe the educational environment can play a role in sending messages as it relates to goal setting for the future.

We need help!!!

We need help in creating the physical environment described above to send purposeful messages about the future endeavors of our students. Our vision is to line the cafeteria walls with 3' X 5' "House Flags" that represent colleges and universities all across the state of Virginia, and beyond. We would also like flags that represent various career paths including the armed forces and various technical institutions.

Donations- Option 1

If you would like to contribute, JRMS will be accepting donated funds to purchase various flags to display on the walls. The average price to purchase a quality flag is $35.00. Please make checks payable to JRMS. Remember to indicate on the donation form which college, university, or institution you would like the school to purchase on your behalf.

Donations - Option 2

If you would like to contribute, JRMS will also be accepting brand new, 3' x 5' house flags of your choice. Preliminary Caution: Please check the donated flags list below prior to purchasing your own. We do want to avoid the duplication of flags.
