Welcome Back!

We hope everyone had a great summer.  We are excited to announce that while you were away JHS was voted a National PTA School of Excellence! We will be celebrating this distinction in October.  If you like kickball let Beth Kluger, your VP of Programs know now!  We are one of 278 schools nationwide to earn this distinction!

We hope everyone got to come out to Open House it was fun to see so many returning faces and meet some new ones.  Mr. Townsend kicked started the Freshman Parents with the all new Freshman Parent Orientation.  The link to his Powerpoint is on social media and it was filled with great information.   We welcomed our teachers and staff back with the  Teacher’s Back to School Luncheon.  Thank you to so many volunteers and donors who made this possible.

It’s never to late to join us…

Our General Membership Meeting will be on
Tuesday, September 11, 2018

Also that evening, Mr. Townsend will be with us to answer questions and talk about all the resources available at Jamestown!
