Much appreciation for the Morris Fire Company and their wonderful Fire Prevention Week program for our JMS students!

A Message from the Principal

Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,

October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and Region 6 will once again be participating in Unity Day on Wednesday October 23rd. Your child can show his or her support for creating a world without bullying by wearing orange on Unity Day. Activities and lessons, led by school psychologist Gina Fleming, will occur throughout the month to educate students about bullying prevention and taking action to end bullying. Visit  this link  for a wealth of resources and information designed for families.

The JMS Student Council is building leadership skills and fostering peaceful conflict-resolution by offering peer mediation to younger students. Sixth-grade peer mediators will be trained and available to help students resolve conflicts using the Second Step program's problem-solving steps, active listening skills, and communication strategies. Once up and running, these student-focused opportunities will be supervised by an adult and reflected upon later to foster additional learning. Peer mediators will be trained and monitored by Mrs. Fleming.

We look forward to seeing our students' special guests next Thursday at our annual Special-Someones' Day!

Have a wonderful weekend,
KC Chapman, Principal
