Welcome Parents

2017-18 Registration

We are looking forward to a great 2017-18 school year, and with the increased interest in JMS we are anticipating a waitlist for all environments and want our current students & siblings to have the first opportunity for these spots. 

Please watch for Enrollment Packets in the Take Home Folders on Wednesday, February 22. These Enrollment Packets must be returned by Wednesday, March 1, when enrollment opens up to the public. After this time, spots will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Annual Fundraiser!

We are happy to announce the annual fundraiser will be a Pancake Breakfast! Hold your calendars for March 18. If you'd like to help out, please contact Katya.
