  • Congratulations to our boys' basketball team!!!  They finished their season as the district champs and were just one game shy of the Parish Championship!  We are very proud of the team and the hard work and effort they have shown this season!  This is a picture of them with their first place trophy for winning the Amite Tournament earlier in the year.

  • JSMS Represented at Special Olympics

    JSMS was well represented at the recent Special Olympics held at PHS. The students in Mrs. Morgan's room practiced and prepared for their individual events. Each student did an excellent job in their division. We would like to thank the high school seniors that volunteered and assisted our students at the event. We are so PROUD of our students!
