GES students are encouraged to swap out screen time for other activities and log them for a chance to win a $25 Target gift card and/or an extra recess. In addition, join other GES families at Centennial Park following school on Thursday, May 3rd for a park play date and some fresh air.  CLICK HERE for more information.

JLMS Cross Country.....

posted Apr 26, 2018, 6:57 PM by Jean Ebel


Do you like running or do you want to get better at running?  Join Cross Country at JLMS! Cross Country is one of two sports open to all sixth grade students at JLMS.  Whether you are an experienced runner or have never run before, you are welcome on the Cross Country team. Cross Country, a fall JLMS sport, starts on the second day of school and lasts about a month.  We practice after school for about an hour and fifteen minutes. We also offer a summer school “Cross Country Jump Start” which is a great way to get started with Cross Country before the season begins.  Visit the school district website for more information.

Please visit the JLMS Athletics page for more information about the requirements for joining sports at JLMS and click here to sign up for our JLMS Cross Country email list.  Thanks!
