After a Year Off, the Jimmie Olympics Return to Jimtown High School
The Jimmie Olympics is back--better late than never. The Jimmie Olympics is traditionally held in January, but with covid concerns it was rescheduled for later this spring--March 22 - March 26. The format was a little different, and we had to streamline some activities; however, the hallways looked great and the students were eager to participate. Traditions and activities like the Jimmie Olympics make Jimtown High a very special place to attend school.
The dress up days were as follows:
- Monday = Pajama Day
Tuesday = Twin Day
Wednesday = Yin Yang Day
Thursday = Neon/Tie Dye Day
Friday = Hallway Decoration Theme Day
The class hallway themes were:
Freshmen = Inside Out
Sophomores = Harry Potter
Juniors = Shrek
- Seniors = Scooby Doo
JHS Car Show
Attention car and cycle enthusiasts--the Jimtown Car & Cycle show is back! This year’s show will be held on May 15, 2021, from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. In addition to the cars and cycles on display, the JHS Band Boosters will be sponsoring food vendors, and we will host a live music stage. This year we have Quentin Flagg as our headliner, who will be joined by the Jimtown Jazz Band and Choir. Admission is FREE and open to the public, so come out to this family friendly event for a good time--check out some sweet rides, enjoy some good food, and groove to great music!
Anyone wanting to show off their hot rod, vintage, or tricked out car/cycle may enter--trophies will be awarded to various category winners. The entry fee is $20 with all proceeds going to support JHS student activities. If interested, contact Rita at 295-2343 ext. 2271 or email a reservation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank You from Food Service
What a year for food service!! We would like to thank all our staff and students for being so flexible and cooperative. They did an excellent job at adapting to the new way we had to serve our meals.
Here are some reminders:

Extra items (including juice, milk, entrees, etc.) will be charged at full price.
Information will be available in July regarding the process for families to receive curricular materials assistance from the state for the 21-22 school year.
All negative lunch charges must be paid by the end of the 2020 - 2021 school year.

Jimtown Jr. High Offers Hope
Jimtown Junior High is excited to be a part of a program called the Hope Squad. The Hope Squad program was built by educators in partnership with mental health experts to change how schools approach mental health and suicide prevention. Hope Squad members are students who are trained to be aware of their peers and watch for warning signs. Our students have nominated the peers they feel most comfortable talking to and we will begin the training process late spring and early fall. We appreciate this opportunity for Hope Squad members to actively look for ways to support their peers.
Spring Sports are ON for 2021
Sadly for our student athletes, all spring sports got cancelled last year due the Covid-19 Pandemic. That was rough.
A new year brings new hope and a new season. Spring sports are BACK!! The students are ready to play and the excitement is building as the weather continues to warm and we can move outside for some great competition.
Spectators will be expected to practice social distancing (which is easier when we move outside) and also wear masks when in areas where social distancing is not possible, (common areas in and out of the games, at the concession stand, etc.)Parents and fans may see all spring sports schedules by visiting our website. While you are in the site, please sign up for “alerts” and get custom alerts sent right to your phone if there are schedule changes or other important information that is released.
