Dear JMS Parents,

Here are the important dates and information for the week:

  • The Special Education Millage vote is Tuesday, May 3rd.

  • Teacher appreciation week is this week May 2-6th.

  • Bike to school day is this Wednesday, May 4th. Parents, you are able to participate as well!  If you would like to bike to school with your student, please email Ms. Vander Hill at bvanderhill@jonesvilleschools.org and let her know.  Anyone wanting to participate will need to be dropped off with their bike at Wicker Works parking lot at 6:45am.

  • Testing for 6th and 7th grade MSTEP MATH testing will be this Tuesday, May 3rd.  Parents, it is crucial that:

    • Your child has a good breakfast the morning of the test.

    • Your child gets a good night's sleep before the test.

    • You talk with your child about the importance of doing their best on this test.

    • Your child gets to school on time, as this is a timed test and will have to make up the test at a different day/time if they are late or absent on this day.

  • Sports: TRACK

    • Tuesday, May 3rd, Away vs. Union City @ 4:30pm

    • Thursday, May 5th, Away vs. Springport @ 3:45pm

  • We are trying to keep the softball and baseball fields free from any damage during construction. Please talk with your child and remind them to stay off of the fields after school hours.   There is an area behind the bleachers, or the park at Wright St. where the students can play.

  • 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.
