New Announcements:

Beginning Monday, September 14, ALL students will receive FREE breakfast and lunch MEALS courtesy of the USDA’s free meal service program.  This will continue through December 31 or until the program’s funds are exhausted.  At that time, all families will go back to being charged based on their free/reduced/paid status.  Be sure to fill out the free and reduced meal application to determine the status after the waiver expires.


Students need to pick up a full meal when they go through the lunch line for it to qualify; ala carte and additional items can still be purchased separately.

Calling all artists! You are invited to submit original artwork to a contest to choose the cover for this year’s JMS Yearbook. The yearbook theme for the 2020-2021 book is Welcome to the New Normal. The contest winner’s work will appear on the front cover and wrap around on the back cover, so size/proportion accordingly. Entries are due to Ms. Kehrli (Room 516) by Friday, October 16 and will be judged based on creative interpretation of the theme and originality. Use any 2-dimensional media (photography, drawing, painting, collage, digital art, etc.). Entries not selected for the cover may be included inside the book to showcase student creativity. Questions? Ask Ms. Kehrli, Mr. Kirkholm, or Ms. James.
