Mrs. Jan Hammons and Mrs. Brenda Johnson-Perry display their cake which was provided by the 4-H Club and STUCO and reads, "Happy Boss's Day to the Big Cheese!"

  • We are selling wristbands that say UNDEFEATED to 
    raise money to purchase a surprise for our football coaches! 
    (Not really a surprise because they will know it is happening, they just won't know what it is!)
    These wristbands are $2!  You can send your money to the homeroom teachers or office to snag one for yourself!

    The Student Council will host a school dance on Friday, November 11th, in our cafeteria.  The theme is Hawaiian Nights.  Break out your grass skirts and start practicing your hula!  The hours are 6:30-9:00.  Tickets will be sold in the cafeteria during lunch for $5 the week of the dance.  Tickets purchased at the door will be $8.  There will also be a concession stand and students can take pictures at the photo booth for $3.  If your child would like to bring a guest from another school, they must get a guest form from the office (available a week prior to the dance) and turn it back into the office signed and completed by November 9th.  DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO GET A FORM!  The principal from the child's school must sign the form so it sometimes takes 2-3 days to get the form completed.

The football team recently toured the LSU practice facilities and weight room. 
School finalists for 8th Grade Student-of-the-Year were Karli Addison, Haley Bates, Tanner Blades and Victoria Verberne.  Victoria was chosen as the overall winner and is the representative for JSMS at the parish level for middle school students.
Please click the image above to learn more about the cumulative grading procedure now being implemented parishwide in grade 8.  This is an entirely different grading procedure than grade 6 and grade 7.  The PowerPoint explains the difference between the two grading systems.
