JMS Announcements – 11/2/21

Announcements for:

Tuesday, November 2, B Day

Today (Tuesday, November 2) is a B day.


 Teachers will update weekly assignments every Friday so students know what needs to be done the following week. In the weekly updates, teachers will communicate any due dates for student work.



Schedule Change:  Due to our transportation situation, we are changing the JMS daily schedule so our day will not begin with CORE classes. Beginning Thursday, October 28, our FIRE/PRIDE class will start at 7:45 and 1st hour will begin at 8:19 AM every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. We do not have FIRE/PRIDE time on Wednesdays so that schedule will remain the same.

Students, if you have chosen Study Time as your FIRE choice this rotation, you do need to report to school at 7:45 AM as we will no longer have Off-Campus Study Hall in the morning. This change will not affect Off-Campus Study Hall for the last period. For your information, a copy of our new schedule is below.


JHS GOLF — The Johnston Golf program’s Fan Gear Shop is open!  None of these items are required for athletes, but there are a lot of great products available if interested.  Please share the link on social media and spread the word to whomever may be interested.  Nothing better for golfers in the community or fans of the program wearing Dragon Gear!

9th grade students who wish to obtain a school driver’s permit can follow the following link:

This link will guide them to a Google Site. Students will need to log in with their jdragonmail credentials in order to watch a video and complete a quiz. The video contains the information that was presented at permit meetings in the past and will now take the place of those meetings. One parent will need to watch the video and note that completion on the quiz. As usual, the only students eligible are 9th graders who have completed driver’s education and have had their learner’s permit for at least six months. After the quiz has been completed, students can pick up their signed Department of Transportation form in the JMS Front Office. Students will need a parking tag to park on school grounds during the school year. Parking tags are available for $20 when students pick up their DOT form. Please make sure you have your license plate number with you at the time of purchase.
