Fine Arts & Literacy Night
We have heard your input about the beginning time of the news show, so we will begin daily at 9:10 AM. Please make sure to have your projector ready. If you have a sub, please put in a ticket prior to your absence for assistance.
Professional Learning Day: February 15th
The agenda for the day is posted on the JMS Training Page: Professional Learning.
Black History Month
Book & Video Club
The test are designed for one class period. Most middle schools have 55 minute classes which is less than our 75 minutes periods. We recommend you meeting your homeroom and classes in the lab on your assigned day. This will allow you to turn on the computers, distribute the computers, assign seats, etc. Arriving early to the lab will allow you some time for any technical needs.
Students who check in late to school will receive a pass from the front office with a date/time stamp and signature. The front office will immediately update attendance. If you are unable to take attendance on a child due to "ABS" filled in for the day, please immediately notify your grade level clerk.
If a student is marked present, but missing from your class, please send a "JMS Locator" email. We will provide information on the student. Thanks!

Team Recognition Program
Begin thinking about who you would like to recognize in December!
Each month, we will recognize team members who exhibit the pillars of Jordan MS: Community, Leadership, and Excellence! Teams can submit up to three names each month. Please include a brief narrative describing how the team member exemplified community, leadership, or excellence. We will celebrate during our vertical team meetings on Fridays!
Communique is the district's communication tool to highlight events in schools, the community, and share vital information. This week's communique highlights CGHS and Magic Wheelchair on the In Five segment.
