80s Day

Congratulations to Gabriela, Cody, and Alicia for their terrific 80's-Day outfits!

A Message from the Principal

Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,

This week's fundraiser for Hurricane Dorian relief brought out great enthusiasm and participation by our students, and we thank you greatly for your support from home! We also thank those of you who were able to join us for Curriculum Night this week, including Mrs. Granoth and the Morris Public Library staff.

A reminder for all dads, uncles, grandpas, and godfathers... To help us kick off "Start With Hello" next week, please join me on Monday morning (9/23/19) to form a "welcoming line"  that greets our JMS students as they arrive at school. With your help, we can send a memorable message to our students that we have a wealth of male role models in the community. Imagine the impact of seeing a welcoming line of all of you, with big smiles and extended hands, eager to great each of our students. What a great way for children to start their day! For greatest effect, please do NOT share this plan with your child(ren). It would be great to surprise for them when they arrive at JMS. If you are available and interested, please arrive at JMS between 8:40 and 8:45 AM so that we can get you a name tag and set up our line.

I would like to invite you to join me the morning of Friday, October 4th to share with you and gather your feedback on our 2019-2020 JMS School Improvement Plan. Coffee, tea, and snacks will be provided. Please RSVP at your convenience.

      Date: Friday, 10/4
      Time: 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM
      Location: JMS Art Room

Finally, I am happy to announce that JMS has hired a student resource officer, Mr. Kevin McGrady, who will be joining us in a couple of weeks as a full-time presence on the school grounds and member of the JMS team. If you have a moment when you visit JMS, please join me in welcoming Mr. McGrady to our school community.

Please reach out to me at any time with any question, concerns, or ideas.

Have a wonderful holiday weekend,
KC Chapman, Principal
