April 11th

Students, get ready for International Night which is the week we return from spring break on  Thursday April 24th from 6-8:30pm.  There will be food tastings and cultural displays as well as awesome performances by JML students, the Freedom HS Japanese Taiko Drum Band, Irish Dancers, and a Union Tae Kwon Do demonstration.  Don't miss out on all the action!  See you at International Night!


Good morning JML students and staff! It's time again to read some Autism facts for Autism Awareness month. Did you know that only $169 million goes directly to Autism research? Also, there is not single known cause for Autism Spectrum Disorders. Instead there are multiple factors that may lead a person to obtaining a diagnosis. Studies show that early diagnosis and intervention can lead to greatly improved outcomes over the course of a lifetime. Lastly, ongoing support through the community, schools, and providers are essential for the individual and their entire family. After we return from Spring Break, be sure to listen about our spirit day for students and staff.


We want to thank everyone for attending our JML Spirit Nights at SUBWAY. Staff, can you please poll your 5th block class to see how many students attended our SUBWAY Spirit Night last night and submit your count to Angela in the main office so we can award the spirit stick to the grade with the best participation this afternoon?

 

Attention 8th grade students and staff attending the day at work: we will be calling your classes down by teams. Please wait until you are called. Students, you may bring your electronic devices but they must be turned off when you arrive at your workplace.
