Back-to-School Dates & Info

8/22 Thursday is our PTA Prep Day. We'll be supporting the office administration by assembling the back-to-school packets and some other assorted tasks. This volunteering can be done by parents and students, the more the merrier! We'll start at 9 am and hope to be done by lunchtime. No need to sign up, just show up. 

**The Community Care Day event planned for Saturday 8/24 has been cancelled due to the construction in front of the school. Hoping to have a grounds clean-up later in the fall or the spring.**

8/28 Wednesday is Jump Start Day and the first day for 6th graders only. More details will be coming from the office in the next week. Quick general overview - Sixth graders will come to school, be checked in by parent volunteers at the door, receive their schedules and be allocated to small groups for the day. No school supplies or backpacks for this day, just a lunch if they want to bring it and maybe a water bottle if it is hot. Parents will be invited in towards the end of the school day (2:30 pm or so) for a presentation. 

  • Experienced JMS parents make valuable volunteers for this day. Please sign-up here if you can help out.

8/29 Thursday is the First Day of School for 7th & 8th and the first regular schedule day for 6th graders. We'd like a few experienced JMS parents to be on hand in the morning to distribute schedules as needed and generally support the office. Please sign-up here if you can help out.

9/2 Monday is Labor Day - No School.

9/3 Tuesday 6:30 pm is our first PTA Meeting hosted at Round Table Pizza. We’ll have time to chat and get to know each other a bit, plus a regular meeting with info for the 2019-20 school year. Come on out for a slice on us!

When we model our school's importance to students, the entire community is enhanced. Thank you for volunteering!
