    WHEN: May 28-31

    Monday 5/27- Memorial Day- No school

    Tuesday 5/28- CRAZY HAIR DAY- How creative can you be with your hair?  Show your wild and crazy side with a unique style all your own!

    Wednesday 5/29- MAKE-BELIEVE PLAYGROUND INJURY DAY- Over the year, the school office has seen many playground injuries. Come to school with a MAKE-BELIEVE injury- an arm in a sling, crutches, splints, etc.  All types have been seen at one time or another. Two rules- no fake blood and you cannot visit the office with your fake injury.  :)

    Thursday 5/30- WHERE IN THE WORLD IS DR. GUNDERSON- Pictures of Dr. Gunderson will be 'peeking' out from various spots around the school.  All throughout your day, keep an eye out for Dr. Gunderson!

    Friday 5/31- FASHION DISASTER DAY- Nothing matches, nothing is the same.  Be creative and dress like you don’t have a care if nothing goes together!

    Let’s celebrate our great school during Spirit Week!!

  • Medication Pick Up

    Please pick up any unused medication(s) that your child has in the school office by the last day of school:  June 7, 2019. 
    The school cannot store medication in the office over the summer.  For the safety of all our students, parents *must* pick up all medications.  Medications may not be sent home with students.

    **New this coming school year: You may deliver your child’s medications and the accompanying forms to the District Nurse at Registration in August. Reminders for this will be emailed to families prior to registration. Remember that you must submit a Medication Authorization form if your child needs to receive any over-the-counter or prescription medication(s) during the school day. The Medication Authorization form is available in the school office and on the District website. For prescription medications, a physician’s signature must be present on the form as indicated. Please plan ahead and have this form, appropriate signatures, and any accompanying medications ready to submit at registration. 

    Thank you for your cooperation in maintaining a safe environment for our students. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the district nurse or the school office.

  • Calling All 5th Graders
    Image result for cross country clipart

    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 to sign up.

    Please visit the JLMS Athletics page for more information about the requirements for joining sports at JLMS and visit the JLMS Cross Country page for info about schedule, meets, and more.

    If you’re interested in Cross Country in the fall, please click here
    to sign up for our JLMS Cross Country email list.  (This is not a final sign-up, just a way to continue to receive information.)  Thanks!
