FAM Summer Camp
PBIS is a proactive systems approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture and needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional, and academic success. Jones-Farrar IB Magnet School was among over 300 schools earning the Bronze  level for building the foundation for school-wide PBIS implementation.
"On Time, Every Day is the Magnet Way" 
Q4 Booster:  May 25, 2016 YMCA Swim Party
cdr New JFMS ongoing  fundraiser! cd

 We currently have allocated $3,000 from our Activity Fund, and will use PTCO technology funds and an ongoing fundraiser of collecting money through the recycling of aluminum  cans. Students may bring small bags of cans to school each day or larger bags may be dropped off out side the storage shed in the WEST playground area. Our goal is $11,000 to purchase 30 Google Chrome Tablets and a Recharging Cart. I know we can easily achieve that this year!

  Please continue to bring in aluminum cans! Large bags can be dropped off outside the shed on the WEST side of the building. Smaller bags may be brought to school anytime by students.

This year we are starting to save any brand juice pouches, Capri Sun, Kool-Aid, Hawaiian Punch, generic brands also.

Please continue to save Box tops, Campbell’s points, COKE rewards, aluminum cans, can tabs. Trash becomes easy CA$H for our school.
