  • dance    

        The Winter Formal Dance will be held on Friday, February 16th, in the JSMS gym from 6:30 - 9:00.  The lights will be turned back on at 8:55 and all students should be picked up promptly by 9:00.  Parents may park and come in the gym early to retrieve your child, if you wish to beat the crowd.  Parents are also welcome to come in the gym and stay during the dance as extra supervision. 

    Tickets purchased at school Thursday or Friday are $5.  They are $8 at the door. 
    This dance is a fundraiser for football so encourage your child to attend!
    Students who have an overdue  library book or have library or school fees to pay, must clear these debts before they can purchase a ticket.   
    Dress code is semi -formal.  That means no t-shirts, jeans, or shorts.  Boys may wear dress slacks with a collared shirt or a suit.  Ties and bow ties are optional but recommended.  
    Girls may wear a formal dress (floor length or knee length) or a pantsuit.  Strapless tops must be covered with a shrug, scarf, or shawl.  No bare shoulders on strapless dresses.  Dresses must adequately cover the rear end of the person wearing the dress.  The clothes for boys or girls should be age-appropriate and not have revealing cut-outs or be excessively tight! 
    There will be a photographer at the dance and the concession stand will be open.

  • winner graphic

    As an incentive for students to exhibit good behavior and positive attributes at school, every six weeks two students will randomly be drawn to each win a $20 gift card.  The students who have not been in PAC or had an Out-of-School Suspension will be eligible for the drawing. 

    The two winners for the 3rd six weeks are: 

    Lennon Aultmann and Shykeria McKnight

    We are proud of these two young ladies for the good behavior they exhibit at school.  They are good role models for the other students!

    Please click the image above to learn more about the cumulative grading procedure being used parishwide in grade 8.  This is an entirely different grading procedure than grade 6 and grade 7.  The PowerPoint explains the difference between the two grading systems.
