JHS CHEER: The Johnston Cheer Program is going to be spreading Dragon Pride and we need your help!

We haven’t had the chance to do this for over a year, and we are excited! Driveway paintings are a huge fundraiser for us and we are hoping to purchase new uniforms for all cheer squads.

We are taking orders until May 27th and will be painting through the months of May and June (Just in time for Grad Parties!)

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.
