A Message from Principal Blair

It's hard to believe that we are 8 short days away from Summer! All students will turn in their school issued chromebook and charger on Monday, May 23rd. Additionally, all library books are due and should have been turned in to Mrs. Martone. Students have been reminded at school over the past few weeks, however we still have a number of outstanding books. Please take a few minutes to check your child's backpack or belongings for any Jarrell Middle School books. Fines will be assessed next week.


We have one more week of STAAR testing as we wrap up state assessments beginning on Tuesday.

Tuesday, 5/17 - 6th Grade Math

Wednesday, 5/18 - 7th Grade Math

Thursday, 5/19 - 8th Grade Math & 7th Advanced Math

Friday, 5/20 - Makeup testing


Please be sure students gets plenty of rest this week, arrive to school on time, and has a healthy breakfast. We will provide all students with a snack and a bottle of water.


They will need a FULLY charged chromebook this week. NO other student devices will be allowed in testing rooms. We are eager to see students meet and exceed their individual goals!
