Knightly News

Dear JCMS Parents and Students,

We are proud to say our school was on display this week! A group of school officials from Chatham County, NC, came to JCMS to observe AVID in action. These visitors went into classrooms, spoke to students and JCMS staff to learn more about the AVID middle school program. It is an honor to be an AVID Demonstration Site and our teachers and students work hard every day to ensure the future is bright for each child on our campus. Please view the brief "flipagram" video below to see some of the highlights of the visit!

The week of February 8-12 is Bus Driver Appreciation Week. If your child rides a bus, please take a moment to say "Thank You" to the person who safely transports your child to and from school each day!

Please find below a list of upcoming scheduled events. As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
