Did you know → Johnston Public Library offers a variation of “Study Zone” or “Homework Help,” where kids show up on Zoom to either be tutored, have an academic environment to do homework, or be able to dive further into their work with other Johnston students. We meet on Zoom at 3:30PM on Mondays until around 5PM and have high school peer tutors available to help students. We can also meet outside that time individually if needed. Reminder all sessions are completely free and non-obligational.  All sessions are monitored by James Grimm and Jessica Young at the Johnston Public Library. For students to receive more information, fill out the online form here with their information so we can reach out to them: or at the slightly less scary shortened version:


Dungeons and Dragons Club is looking to start live meetings following spring break. What is Dungeons and Dragons Club? I am glad you asked. Dungeons and Dragons Club is designed to give students a chance to play the long lived pencil and paper roleplaying game with all materials provided. Players of any ability level are welcome. New games may also be added to the club based on interest. Some of those games could include Star Wars: Armada, X-Wing miniature game, and more.


If any of this peaks your curiosity please complete the survey below to allow Mr. Hewitt (sponsor) to schedule a date and time for the cub to meet. If you have any questions feel free to stop by Mr. Hewitt’s room (113) or email me (

Interest survey for Dungeons and Dragons Club:


Hey 9th Grade Dragons!

Are you interested in learning about how to start and run a business? Do you want to learn what it takes to be an entrepreneur? Do you want to learn how to invest in the stock market? If so, the JHS Business Club is for you! Here, you will have the opportunity to work on projects of your own or team up with other students and see if this would be something you would want to do in the future. New ideas and suggestions on which direction the club should engage in are welcome too. We meet every Tuesday @3:30 on Zoom. Practices can last between 15min-45min. Please stay tuned for future announcements about events and ways to engage with the club.

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.
