The money collected will be donated to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in hopes of finding cures for blood cancers. We are having a contest among all grade levels.  The grade level that donates the most money by this Friday will be recognized.  Also, each person who donates will receive their autographed Pink Heart on the Cafeteria Window! Did you know… In children and adolescents younger than 20 years, the five-year relative survival rate for Leukemia is 85 percent.

Seniors: March means that deadlines for scholarships are approaching. Many applications are posted on the board across from the cafeteria and more are available on the JHS website online. Make sure you apply online for the WJCC Community Scholarship Fund before the deadline of March 22. Last year, over $60,000 in scholarships went to seniors at Jamestown, Lafayette, and Warhill.
