The cemetery is home to the graves of over 400,000 people, most of whom served in the military.” This is the last day of the JMS social studies department essay contest. There is still time to submit your essay. Remember, you need to write a one-page essay answering the question: Why is it important to honor our veterans? Submit your essay to Mr. Dwyer’s mailbox in the main office or email it to sdwyer@cpsk12.org, by the end of the school day. The writer of the best essay will receive a special prize and your essay will be shared with local veteran organizations. Let’s show our veterans what their service means to JMS!

     

    An important reminder from Coach Rowe:

     

    If you are wanting to attend a basketball game here at JMS here are the expectations that we will ask you to follow.

    1. Pay $2 at the gate or have an Activity Pass in hand.
    2. Must wear a mask at all times.
    3. Must stay in the auditorium or the concessions area. Anyone who leaves those areas will not be allowed back to any JMS game.
    4. Once you leave the building you will not be allowed back in.
    5. Students may only sit in the balcony if they are with an adult and must sit with them.
    6. Cheer loudly but positively and appropriately.

     

    Failure to comply with these expectations will result in suspension from all JMS sporting events.
