MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR

Hello Everyone,

We are extending the Mixed Bag Design Fundraiser until Monday, October 16th.  If you plan on participating, please send in your order and payment by Monday.  We will not take orders past Monday.

All students have been issued a Chromebook at this point, however, Chromebooks are not to leave school grounds until Insurance Forms have been issued.  Insurance forms will be distributed soon, but until that happens, students are not allowed to take the Chromebooks home!

The JMW Homecoming Dinner Dance will be on Friday, November 17th from 6:00-11:00pm at the Pawtucket Country Club.  Tickets are $35 for current JMW Students and $50 for everyone else.  We will have a program booklet for this event, where students can sell advertisements.  Students will receive 50% of the profit for each ad sold towards tickets for the Homecoming Dinner Dance.  For example, if a student sells a $50 ad, they will get $25 towards a ticket.  This promotion is not just for students, but for anyone who attends the event.  Ad forms were distributed on Wednesday and are available from Mr. Pimentel.

On Monday, October 16th, Mrs. Garvey has arranged for a Financial Aid Night for the families of our Juniors and Seniors.  This will be the perfect opportunity for students and parents to learn about FAFSA and receive assistance filling out forms.

Also on Monday, October 16th will be Picture Day!  Mare Studios will be at JMW to take pictures for student ID's and Picture Packages.  Forms were mailed home directly from Mare Studios.  If you would like to purchase a picture package, have students bring in the money and forms to school on Monday.

JMW Apparel Order Forms and payment are due on Tuesday, October 17th.  Order your JMW Apparel today.  We will not place another order until the Spring.

As Halloween quickly approaches, please be reminded that costumes, masks and costume makeup is not allowed at school.  Students may dress up and use costume makeup for Pumpkin Palooza, but not during the school day.
