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 (email@example.com)

9th grade students who wish to obtain a school driver’s permit can follow the following link: https://www.johnstoncsd.org/school-news/school-drivers-permit-process/
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.
Any and all students interested in upcoming athletics, please register now using the Johnston online activities registration system. All student-athletes are required to have a yearly sports physical on file in the system. Please see the attached sports physical form, that should be brought to the doctor appointment and signed by doctor, then a parent or guardian should complete the additional information on the form.
