On Tuesday, December 09, 2014 1:30 PM-2:45 PM, in the Spotts Gym, JMS will host a presentation by former Detroit Lions quarterback, Eric Hipple and his daughter Tarrah:
This innovative presentation strives to enhance learning and academic achievement by changing the culture of stigma surrounding mental health. The program emphasizes the power of peer support and bystander intervention in everything from preventing negative behaviors and violence, to identifying serious warning signs of depression, substance abuse, or suicidal intentions. Building on the energy, motivation, connectedness, and sense of purpose that exists in a “healthy mind”, the presentation provides constructive strategies, resources, and materials for school staff, students, and parents to use to encourage positive behaviors. Attendees will learn strategies to identify depression, as well as strategies to promote healthy behaviors.
This presentation has been presented for the past ten (10) years in schools and communities throughout the state of Michigan, three (3) times at the MEMSPA (Michigan Elementary and Middle School Principals Association) conference, three (3) times at the annual Michigan School Boards of Education conference, once at the Michigan Association of Secondary School Principals conference, and to numerous high school and middle school students as well as Pre K – 12th grade parents and school staff.

There is will BASKETBALL OPEN GYM every Monday and Wednesday from 3:00 to 4:30, at the old Phoenix Alternative School gym on Concord Rd. Students are responsible for finding their own way over there, and having someone pick them up promptly at 4:30. This open gym is for those 6th, 7th, and 8th grade boys and girls who are SERIOUS about their basketball. Please bring appropriate clothes and shoes, as well as a water bottle(there isn’t a drinking fountain over there). If you have any questions, or ride issues, please see Mr. Brown. Thank You!
JMS has a chance to give the library a face-lift! WE NEED YOU! With the help of the students, we are working on designing our space to meet the ever-changing atmosphere needed to stay current with today’s tweens/teens. There are many unique opportunities for parents/families to participate in to benefit the middle school library and we need YOU! We need your AWESOME ideas, some of your time, and a little of your hard work to MAKE IT ALL HAPPEN. Please contact Mrs. Maddox at email@example.com or by calling 517-826-7096 if you’re interested in helping. The first opportunity to get involved starts now!
WITH THE COUNSELOR
This is held on the last Friday of every month in the Counseling Annex from
8:30-9:30. We will host a morning coffee for parents on a topic that is relevant to
middle school. This gives me the opportunity to meet with many parents at
once to discuss how to help their children be successful. All parents are
welcome to attend these meetings, which last about an hour.
Dates: For Trimester 1 and Topics
Congratulations to the following students for being nominates as Student of the Month for September:
