The JBMS school counselors hosted a Purple Up for the Military Child celebration on April 18th for those students whose family members are in the military. School Resource Officer John Heilman spoke to students about growing up in a military family and about his own time in the army as an adult. We thank our JBMS families who serve and are here to support their children!
James Blair faculty and staff received five grants from the Williamsburg Community Foundation! Ms. Ashley Miller will purchase books for her ELL students in their own languages. Our school counseling staff, Ms. Pottle, Ms. Kuthy, and Ms. Kravitz, will be redoing the guidance office space to be a warm and welcoming environment for students. Ms. Jaclyn Miller will purchase equipment with which to grow and study plants with her science classes. Mr. Capers will purchase drones to use with the science and technology classes. Congratulations to our staff on winning these grants for their innovative ideas!
