Hello JAMS Families,

We made it through the first two days of school...yay!  PTSA hopes your student enjoyed the first week whether they are new to JAMS or returning.  We are excited about this school year and are looking forward to building community, having the opportunity to interact with you all face to face at our meetings and events and volunteer/work alongside our admin team, faculty, staff and families to support our school community by "positively impacting the lives of all students and families!" 🤩

Our Welcome Back Picnic on Friday, August 26, 2022, 4pm - 6pm on the front lawn!  Bring your chairs, blankets, snacks and drinks.  PTSA will provide the music, space and loads of fun!  Have a great week everyone!
