Welcome back! We hope you all enjoyed the spring break!
We have much to be proud with our JJMS students. In the months of March and April our students competed successfully the Science Olympiad, and participated in the Science Fair and tap danced their way through the Anything Goes musical! I continue to be so impressed by the students and the talents each of them bring to school every day. Additionally, each of our grade-level PTO night events were a tremendous success. The turnout exceeded expectations for every grade. We followed up those events with a Spirit Week run by our Student Council. Both students and staff enjoyed being a part of these days.
In the coming months I hope to see you at some of our evening events, including concerts where our students will get to show off their musical talents. Please continue to check the calendar on our website for updated upcoming events.
As we approach the final stretch of the school year, we encourage all students to stay focused on their academic work while also getting outside to enjoy the warmer weather! May and June can be challenging months for students with balancing academics and thinking about their fantastic summer plans. I’d like to take the time to remind everyone that given the social and emotional needs of adolescents, it is important for all of our students to get enough rest and have time to unwind in the afternoon. Let’s support our students with helping them make informed decisions in striking this delicate balance.
