Dear Parent:

I can't believe it is already November! We have had a busy Fall and first term officially ends on Monday. Each morning Mrs. Liner, many of our teachers and support staff, and I have the opportunity to greet your students as they get off buses or make the walk up from the VFW lot. Middle school students are not always totally awake at 7:30 in the morning, but we still enjoy seeing their smiling (most of the time) faces. Greeting students is just one small thing we do as a school community to create a positive Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) environment. At the October PAC meeting several of the JMS staff met with parents to share all the ways we engage our school community through SEL best practices. As a parent of three busy children, I know evening meetings are not always easy to attend. Because of that, Mrs. Liner and I wanted to invite you to our school for "coffee with the principals" to discuss all the ways we work to support our students through SEL. Also, we want to hear from you about the ways we can work together to ensure each student is getting the most out of middle school. Please join us for coffee and some pastries on Friday, November 9th at 8:30 am. Please RSVP using the link below so we know how much coffee to order. Please let me know if you have any questions.

RSVP for Coffee with the JMS Principals

Best, Bill

Thank You From The Art Teacher 

Thank you to everyone who purchased items on Artsonia. I have funds to purchase more Art materials for the students because of your generosity, YAHOO!!! 

Also, thank you to everyone who donated catalogs, magazines, newspapers, containers and STICKERS.  Our students have found extremely creative ways to use these items. If you still have any of these items lying around or anything else that can be upcycled, please consider donating.  Thank you all for your support!  Mrs. Munoz-Bennett

WHS Drama Fall Musical Presents - Rogers and Hammerstein's Cinderella

The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with Rodgers & Hammerstein's originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true. Adapted for the stage, this version brings this classic magical fairy tale to life for all ages. 

Shows:  Saturday, November 10th, 7:00 PM;
Sunday, November 11th, 2:00 PM
