Fire Alarm Malfunction

The fire alarm was activated in our building over the weekend due to an equipment malfunction error.  The company that supplies the equipment was contacted this morning to inspect the matter.  Any necessary repairs will be made as soon as possible.  This will not impact classes, school will be in session tomorrow.

We had two very successful events at JKMS last week!

Successful Band Concert

We would like to thank Mr. Lee, the JKMS Band director, and Mr. Couslon the DHS band director for an amazing collaborative band event at Dixon High School last week!


Successful Spring Fling Dance

We would like to thank Mrs. Herd, Mr. Nunes, and the leadership students for hosting yet another successful band event at JKMS.  Please click on the link below for a short video clip of JKMS students and staff having fun at the spring fling dance.

8th Grade Activities

Eighth-grade families, we have 10 weeks left in the school year to ensure that our Mavericks are prepared for the transition to high school.  Parents, it is imperative that your eighth graders remain focused on our school-wide expectations of being safe and respectful, and productive.  We started the year strong and are committed to finishing strong. please take a moment to review the attached information sheet regarding 8th-grade end-of-the-year activities, dates, and requirements to participate in 8th-grade end-of-the-year activities.
