MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR

Ricardo Pimentel  

Hello Everyone,

Although this past week was a somber one with the passing of our dear colleague and teacher, Julie-Ann Carlson, from Jenks, we have persevered and sought strength to move on.  She will always be remembered as a kind and loving individual who encouraged students to participate in the Arts.  She is the reason, many of our students attend JMW and we will be forever grateful.

We did postpone exams by one day.  Exams continue on Monday, January 23, 24 and 25.  The schedule is listed below. January 23rd and 24th will be release time days with an 11:15 dismissal.  Lunch will be served on all days.  On January 25th, we will have a special Advisory in the morning to distribute schedules for for Semester 2, followed by Periods 5 and 6.  Lunch will be from 10:50-11:15 followed by Exams for Periods 7 and 8.  Dismissal will be at 2:20pm.
