What's going on in class?


In Math students wrapped up their second section in Mod. 4. We have two sections still to complete which will wrap up our Algebra unit. Have a good spring break

Language Arts

Students wrote their essay answering the essential question, "How can people still achieve the American Dream when faced with injustice?". Have a great spring break!


This week in science students designed their own lab to test the effects of surroundings on ice. This was their first attempt this year at writing their own procedures, designing data tables to organize their data and writing a summary. This as well as a thermal energy quiz will be added to the fourth term grades.

Social Studies

This week in social studies, students completed their Ancient Rome Minecraft projects and presented them to their classmates. On Friday students began learning about the rise of Julius Caesar and the collapse of the Roman Republic. When we get back students will learn about the Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire. Have a great Spring Break!

Student led conferences are coming the week we return from spring break. Parents should have received an email explaining how to sign up. Please try to schedule your appointment as soon as possible for the most convenient time slots. The goal of JCMS is to have 100% parent participation!

7th Grade Enrollment

Friday during Science Ms. Laflin, the sixth grade counselor, came to enroll students for seventh grade. Students who were absent may meet with her at a later time to determine their classes.

Students of the Week!

Each week teachers will be nominating Team 2 students who demonstrate positive character, work ethic, leadership, and or overall growth/ improvements. Below are our Students of the Week!

Student Expectations

Your student should wear their ID daily on a lanyard. If your student has lost their student ID, they may purchase a new one through the main office for $3.

Please charge tablets every night. Many students are leaving tablets in their locker. If your family would prefer that the tablet stays at school, please contact your student's CAT time teacher to make arrangements for secure storage and charging.

No Name Papers

We have had several no name papers turned in this year. If a student thinks they turned in an assignment but it shows missing in the grade book it is likely they didn't put a name on it. Please remind your child to always put their name, class, and hour on their papers.

Hallway Procedures

JCMS has updated hallway procedures during class. Please contact your student's CAT time teacher if you have questions.

Team 2 Expectations

Team 2 is consistent in our expectations in all our courses to create the best and most conducive learning environment for all students. We create these expectations and go over them multiple times with the team to insure that all students are able to be successful. We encourage you to review the expectations and discuss them with your student.


Students will be sending out weekly grade updates each Friday via e-mail. Please make sure your student has your email address as well as it being updated in Skyward. Parents will also have access to student grades at all times through the Skyward website or app. If you are unable to access Skyward please contact the office for further help.
