It's hard to believe the end of the school year is nearly here!  With so much happening, I wanted you to have a few key reminders at the top of your Inbox, along with our special bell schedule.  

  • First, if you haven't already done so, please remind your child to turn in missing assignments, textbooks (and laptops/Chromebooks for 8th graders).
  • Second, JLS students will be receiving their 2021-22 Yearbook tomorrow morning if they have turned in all textbooks.  If their Yearbook is held, they will likely need to check in with one of their teachers.
  • Lastly, this week is about celebrating our accomplishments and honoring the work of our 8th grade students.  We are all looking forward to our Promotion Ceremony on Thursday, and our traditional Promotion Party afterwards.  We are still seeking volunteers to help us with this event, if you are interested, please sign up below!

As we approach the end of the year, students are returning borrowed items to the school. Please review the list below and remind your child to turn in these materials to the teachers as soon as possible.  Missing or damaged items can be paid for in the JLS office.  Your child may not receive a yearbook if the textbook/materials obligations are not cleared by Tuesday, May 31st.
