WANTED: Your Feedback

This week, our annual Family Survey was sent home, including instructions and an access code.


As of today, participation for JMS is under 30%.


Your responses will help our school better understand what it is like to be a family member in our district and to adjust accordingly. Thank you!

Bottle and Can Drive

The JMS PTO and Jazz band members are running a bottle and can drive at the Morris Transfer Station on Saturday, April 14th from 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM and Sunday, April 22nd from 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM. The “Slice Girls” will also be holding a bake sale there.


Proceeds benefit both the Jazz Band and the PTO. Please drop off your recyclables!

Opportunity for Parents and Guardians

To honor those who died in active military service, several JMS students are available to interview local adults about friends or relatives who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. These students will then write a brief piece about these servicepersons, to be shared with the interviewee and community on Memorial Day. If you would be interested in being interviewed by a student about such an individual you have known during your life, please send an email to Principal Chapman at kchapman@rsd6.org . Thank you!
