    Happy 2018! 
    We have a busy winter planned--looking forward to seeing you at JAMS!

    PTSA General Meeting
    Thursday, January 18th, 7PM
    JAMS Library

    Please join us for our winter General Meeting. Not only will you have the opportunity to vote on the Nominating Committee who will put together your 2018-19 PTSA Board, you will also have the opportunity to:

    Meet and listen to parents, students and an administrator from area high schools (Garfield, Roosevelt, Ingraham, Nathan Hale, The Center School and Nova) speak about their experiences and culture of the various schools. In addition, principal Paula Montgomery will explain the open enrollment process. Forms will be available.

    This meeting will include relevant information for parents of all grade levels: 6th grade parents so you know what is coming, 7th grade parents as you being to plan for next year, and 8th grade parents experiencing it now. We acknowledge that there are high school open houses at Garfield and Center School scheduled for Jan. 18, and we sincerely apologize for the overlap. Scheduling during the first part of 2018 has been an enormous challenge.
