JAMS AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMS: YMCA ON BOARD
The JAMS PTSA Steering Committee has announced on its website that after-school activity programs at JAMS will be run by the YMCA! This is great news for people who were wondering or worried about how this would be pulled off at a new school. The YMCA runs the after-school activity programs at Eckstein and HIMS.
MORE TEACHER HIRING NEWS
The JAMS Fusion Page official website has announced the hiring of four more teacher leaders: science leader, language arts leader, head counselor, and assistant principal. With the music teacher leader hire announced earlier, this makes five teacher leader positions filled. If you are interested in participating in the teacher hiring process, you can take the SEA interview training and let Principal Montgomery know that you would like to participate in an interview team. There is a training scheduled for tomorrow, February 11.
REMINDER: LET MS. SCHAAF KNOW ABOUT YOUR CHILD'S MUSIC TALENTS AND NEEDS!
