Grandparents Day

Our students and staff had so much fun with our Special Someones this week!

A Message from the Principal

Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,

Yesterday, JMS hosted 115 guests for our annual Special Someones Day! These guests included parents, guardians, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings, and family friends. This is easily one of our favorite events of the year, as it brings in so many loving and caring individuals to share time with the children and to experience a small taste of the JMS learning environment. We thank all of you who helped make this happen. Photos of the event can been see on our Instagram page.

I am looking for parents/guardians to join me on our 2019-2020 Safe-School Climate Committee. The primary purpose of this committee is to review and discuss our anti-bullying efforts and our safe-school climate plan. The committee will include parents, along with school staff members, our school psychologist, our newly appointed resource officer, and myself. Our first meeting of the year will be held at 9:00 AM on Wednesday, November 13th. Any interested parents/guardians are encouraged to attend and/or to reach out to me with questions.

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.

Please note that K-6 will dismiss at 12:30 PM next Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for parent/teacher conferences. Pre-K will dismiss at 10:25 PM on these same days.

Also, please note that the PTO Harvest Festival originally scheduled for this weekend has been postponed. Stay tuned for additional details.

Have a wonderful weekend,
KC Chapman, Principal
