Celebrations and Recognitions:

*Thank you to our counseling department for all of their work in supporting our students to be "World Changing Warriors." did you know that on the first Friday of each month, all JSMS students participate in "lunch bunch?" Students are assigned tables. A community volunteer is present at each table and leads each table in conversation topics. This time provides students a chance to get to know students they may not interact with on a daily basis and provides quality conversation designed to empower and inspire students. If you are interested in volunteering as a table volunteer, please call our office and ask to speak to Counseling. We are always looking for volunteers! This week, San Francisco 49er and JSMS alum, Daniel Kilgore, volunteered! Once a Warrior, Always a Warrior!

*A big thank you to our counselors and teachers for completing a successful week of testing! Our students were troupers and did a great job!

*Baseball and Softball teams both had wins last week!

*Our Mathcounts team participated in the state competition in Nashville this weekend and made us proud as always!

*Thank you to our PTA and all volunteers for sponsoring another dance that students thoroughly enjoyed!

Proud to be a Warrior,

Holly Flora

Principal, JSMS
