Here's a sneak peek of what will be taking place at JMS in February in honor of Black History Month!

Black History Month Trivia

A question will be read on the morning announcements every day during the month of February in honor of Black History month. Students will write their name and their answer on a slip of paper and give it to their homeroom teacher. The questions are designed to challenge the students' knowledge of African American history.  The correct answer and winner will be announced during the afternoon announcements. The daily prize will be an ice cream pass.  However, unlike previous years, all correct answers will be saved throughout the month. At the end of the month, we will have a drawing for a grand prize (will be announced at a later time). Therefore, the more correct answers the students submit, the more chances they have to win the grand prize at the end!


Door Decorating Contest

This year Ms. McClellan had the brilliant suggestion to do a door decorating contest! Between now and Friday, February 8th, we are asking each homeroom to decorate their door to represent Black History Month and/or famous African Americans throughout history.  The winning homeroom will receive a pizza party for the students and the teacher will receive a $25 gift card!! Judges will be Mr. Smiley, Ms. Snowden, and possibly 1 other judge. All doors must be decorated before Friday, February 8th!
