    PARENT ALERT - Latest Social Media "Prank"

    We would like to put everyone on alert regarding a new Tik Tok (social media) Challenge that students across the U.S. are engaging in.  It is called the "Skullbreaker or Tripping Jump Challenge"

    It works this way:

    1. Have three people line up next to each other.
    2. Tell the middle person (victim) that you want to have a jumping challenge to see who can jump the highest.
    3. As the middle person jumps, the two people to each side try to kick the victim's legs out from under him/her.

    In most instances, the actions will be videoed and shared to social media for laughs.  This challenge is very dangerous and could result in broken bones, concussions, skull fractures or other serious injuries.  Many participants require emergency medical services.


    JSMS will not tolerate such a harmful "game", and consequences will be provided for anyone involved in this "game".

    Attention Parents,
    There are independent reads in ELA Guidebooks for Unit 2A , the Giver, in 7th grade and Unit 2 Tell-Tale Heart in 8th grade. The independent reading selections include some sensitive material and subjects. To respond to this issue, we have posted a document/folder entitled Teacher Notes that contains information of how the text is used in the units, reviews of the books, recommendations and guidance, and in the case of grade 7th grade, alternate text choices. Our ELA teachers have met and reviewed materials and are making accommodations in some places.  If you have questions, please feel free to call and speak with your child's ELA Teacher.

    4-H is the world's largest youth organization.  Here at Jewel Sumner Middle we have an active club and welcome any student who is looking for fun and meaningful community service activities.  We take field trips each year and participate in many activities to help better our community.  Our goal is to develop our young people into productive, caring citizens.  The 4-H motto is "To make the best better!"    The club sponsors are Ms. Splane & Mrs. Morgan.  The dues for 4-H are $15 and must be paid by the deadline of September 20th.  They can be paid with your school supply fee or paid separately.  The membership fees should be turned into the homeroom teacher, who will turn them into the office for Ms. Splane to write a receipt.  The 4-H meetings are held once a month.  Our first meeting will be held in September.  Only students who have paid thier dues by this date will be eligible to attend.  We will discuss our officer elections, the Tangipahoa Parish Fair and National 4-H Week.

    We are always happy to have parent volunteers!  If you have a special skill or talent and would want to help with one of our projects - gardening, sewing, baking, livestock, fishing, woodworking, etc. - please contact Ms. Splane or Mrs. Morgan.  Our students need to learn skills such as these!
