Weekly Update For 11/15/21

Dear JMS Parents,

Here are the important dates and information for the week:

  • Monday is the first day of the second trimester!  Students can check their updated schedules via Skyward.  We will also go over schedules first thing in the morning during WIN.

  • Monday is also the opening day of firearms deer season.  Be safe hunting and driving tomorrow!

  • Quiz Bowl: Yesterday, our 7th and 8th grade quiz bowl teams travelled to Springport to compete in the Big 8 competition. We had two teams from each grade, and Jonesville was able to snag a first place trophy in BOTH competitions! 

  • Sports:

    • Boys basketball, Monday, Nov. 15th, Away at Bronson

      • 7th @5:00PM

      • 8th @6:00PM 

    • Boys basketball, Wednesday, Nov. 17th, Home vs Springport

      • 7th @5:00PM

      • 8th @6:00PM

  • Cheerleading practice is starting.  Anyone interested in participating needs to sign up ASAP and make sure they have a physical on file.

  • Girls basketball and boys wrestling will start in January.  You may want to schedule a physical sooner, rather than later, due to the holidays if you’re interested in playing.

  • After school tutoring and athletic study hall will be available every Tuesday and Thursday from 2:50-3:50.  Any student wishing to attend may show up as long as they bring work.  Athletes will know in advance if they must attend.  *Students cannot remain in the school past 4pm, and should have transportation available after tutoring.

  • If your child is absent from school due to an illness or appointment, please call the office in the morning and let us know 517-849-3210.

  • Students who are quarantined are required to complete all classwork while they are away from school.  Your teacher should have Google Classroom or Schoology set up to deliver all assignments and instruction.  Failure to complete assignments on time will result in a lowered grade.  If you are sick, please let your teacher know so an exception can be.

  • During sporting events, please talk with your child and remind them to stay off of the baseball and softball fields.  This is especially problematic during football games.  There is an area behind the bleachers where the students can play.  We are trying to keep the softball fields from any damage during construction.

  • Masks are optional in school, however, if you ride the bus, they are required the entire time you are on the bus.
