In conjunction with a program educating the students, we ask parents and caregivers to assist the school in creating a safe walking environment for our students. If you drop off or pick up on Moffett Street, please review these important reminders.

  • Remember, Moffett Street is a two-way street.  At no time are you permitted to drive on the wrong side of the road, especially over the Cross Walk.
  • Please keep the cross walk clear particularly during the busy dismissal time.
  • When stopping for students using the Cross Walk, please allow space so that students are able to watch for moving vehicles in both directions.
  • If you see that a vehicle may be endangering a student, please use your horn to alert them.  While it may be loud, it is more important to make the driver aware and alert the pedestrians to danger.

Remember, child safety should always come first.  Please don’t put your child or your neighbor’s child in an unsafe situation for convenience sake.

~ Dr. James Walsh, Principal

This week, the JMS Student Council is sponsoring the first annual "Hunger Games", based on Suzanne Collins's bestselling young adult novel.  As a tribute to this popular book series and its riveting storyline, all of the homerooms were divided into 12 "Districts,"  and from December 15 - 19, the students will compete to see which District can bring in the most non-perishable items that will then be distributed to local food banks.

Parents: TeenSafe,  an online service that enables parents to remotely observe texts, social media activity and cell phone calls, has provided us with a helpful parenting guide to online safety. TeenSafe is also offering JMS parents a discount and a $10 donation to our PTA for every parent that subscribes.
