Help the SUN Community Pantry Shine!
The new SUN Community Food & Hygiene Pantry is such a great resource for those in need at JMS. Thank you to everyone who donated last month! It needs some filling up, so please check the list here and sign up for what you would like to bring. You can sign up for more than one item, and be sure to click “save” before closing the window. Please deliver your donations by Tuesday, April 30th, to either the SUN Classroom or to the office in a bag marked “SUN Community Pantry." Thank you!
Pizzicato Dough For Dollars Next Tuesday
On Tuesday, April 30th, you can skip cooking dinner and have pizza instead! The Lake Oswego Pizzicato (15180 SW Bangy Rd.) is doing a “dough for dollars” fundraiser for the PTA that night. They’ll be donating a percentage of all dine-in, take-out and gift cards purchased that day. Be sure to mention JMS when you order!
Awesome Fun Night!
The spring Awesome Fun Night is scheduled for Friday, May 3rd, from 6 pm to 8:30 pm. Permission slips were sent home today!  We are looking for awesome fun volunteers who would love to help. If you are interested in helping out please sign up using this link. We ask that volunteers gather in front of the auditorium by 5:45 pm to review expectations and the various stations that need help and chaperoning. It’s going to be awesome!
Ground Kontrol Board Party Next Saturday
Your kid will have a blast at the Ground Kontrol Classic Arcade with Mr. Matteri and Mr. Cornett on Saturday, May 4th, from 2-4 PM. The $30 price includes two hours of gaming fun plus snacks. Parents will need to provide transportation. Open to Jackson students only. All funds raised support our awesome Bernstein Artful Learning Program. Please sign up here.
RAT Race Volunteers
We need a few more volunteers for this year’s RAT (Run for Arts & Technology) Race fundraiser. Our goal is to make $10,000 to purchase a full cart of Chromebooks for the Language Arts classroom that will be added next year. The run is the morning of Friday, May 17th, and we need volunteers working shifts both inside the building and outside on the track to keep things running smoothly! (If you are willing to work all morning, please sign up for the overlapping shifts.)  Sign up here. Thank you!
