Second quarter has begun at JMS. Our students are having a great year so far! Please remind your students to dress warmer and bring a jacket as the weather gets colder. Many items have been left in our lost and found! Please remind students to check for items they may have lost.

Also, please remind students to charge Chromebooks and bring their Chromebook and bag to school daily! We have limited loaners and mostly use these for students whose Chromebooks are in Tech Help. If your student's Chromebook is having any issues, please send them to the Tech Help Center in the librarian. A librarian or technician will be happy to assist them!

Also, please be aware of our finals schedule. Students must be here for finals. Please be aware that if your student cannot be here due to you traveling out of town, you must receive permission from a principal for your student to take finals earlier.
