Principal's Update

School Closure Week of May 18-22

Dear Families,

I hope this week's newsletter finds you all doing well. As you are aware, we are winding down the school year; however, we are not done just yet; so please stay with us a little longer! This past week, we were able to see some families and they retrieved their child's belongings from PE, and Electives. Boys PE will continue with locker pick up this week. Please see their specific schedule below. I want you to know that although we don't know what the new year will look like; we are already planning for your children. We are getting new tile in the D building, Cafeteria, and also Gym Areas. Teachers are relocating to new rooms which is allowing us to really clean out the building. We are also in the process of planning professional development and focusing on the structures of blended learning. Six of our teachers had this training last year and the kids loved the structure in the classroom and the data shows improved student performance and engagement! We are excited to move forward school-wide.


But before we get to the new year it is very important that we get every child registered electronically. All students must be registered on-line! We have begun this process this week and will continue each day until we have everyone. I am including helpful tips below!


Please check-out links and information below. I have included details for JMS only and also JSTEM only especially as it related to yearbooks and Chromebooks. We are also planning a curb-side parade for our students to say one last goodbye before they move on to the new adventures of high school. This will be held on May 27th from 6:00-7:00 p.m. in the JMS parking lot. More details next week.


As we all weather the storm together, I want you to know that we are here for you and will be here in August as well however that looks! Please continue to take care of yourselves, be careful, wash your hands, practice social distancing and wear your masks : 0 )


Sincerely,

Mrs. Worley
