National Young Readers Week

November 10th-14th

Visit we

National Young Readers week is an annual event that was co-founded by Pizza Hut and the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress. To make this a special week we are recruiting local “celebrities” and community "leaders" to re aloud a favorite book in our classrooms and discuss the importance of reading for college and career readiness.

vd  Tuesday, November 11th

 Beginning at 1:30 PM

Commander Boettcher from FHS will be bringing the JROTC color guard and at least 4 spinners. JROTC members will practice and demonstrate the appropriate service and respect of presenting our nation’s flag. Through our studies of citizenship and civic responsibility, this display of patriotism will also give our students an understanding of this prestigious duty in our military forces. We are grateful for this opportunity for our students on Veteran’s Day.

 Parents are welcome to attend.

October 9th Fall Family Fun Night “GAME NIGHT” games

& Scholastic Book Fair Update:

Thank you for your support of "Game Night" and our PTCO sponsored book fair!
We had 348 students and parents attend. We also gave away a deck of cards to every student that attended and 35 door prizes. 
We hope that by giving the cards away families will continue to practice many of the games they learned at this event.
Thanks to all that took a few minutes to share feedback on the "How are we doing" forms.
We appreciate your ideas on how we can make this an event better next year!
We would like to apologize that we were unable to safely serve the cookies we ordered with the pizza. Unfortunately, they may have contained peanut traces. To make up for this safety issue, peanut free cookies were served as a snack to ALL JFMS students this week.
