A Message from the Director...

Hello Everyone,

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate JMW Senior, Emiliano Ducas, on his work with Ten 31 Productions.  Emiliano recently was a live statue for a Boston Celtics event.  We are proud of your work and look forward to your artistic future.

JMW will be hosting our Meet & Greet Open House on Tuesday, September 26th from 6:00-8:00pm.  This will be your opportunity to meet with teachers and explore the curriculum and expectations. Please make every effort to attend.  Friends of JMW will also be present to talk about the many ways to get involved with PTO.  We will also kick off our Mixed Bag Designs Fundraisers.  Packets will go home on Wednesday during Advisory!  Help us raise funds for student activities.  

On another note, Governor Raimondo has announced that the state will be able to cover the renewal fees for every Dreamer whose DACA status is eligible for renewal before October 5. If a student needs assistance renewing their DACA status, please reach out to our Guidance Counselor, Mrs. Garvey at 1-401-729-6530 or email at garveyc@psdri.net.

Until Next Week,
