Back to School 2021-2022

Letter from JMMS Principal - Michelle Vela

Monday - July 19, 2021

Good Evening James Monroe Families,

I hope you have had a fun summer so far.  There are still a few more weeks left to get that last minute weekend getaway or vacation in! School will be here before you know it.  Here are a few things to get wrapped up before we come back to in-person learning. 

Help Uploading Necessary Documents - Monday August 2, 2021 from 9:00am to 2:00 pm

If you are having trouble uploading your proof of residency documents or shot records, we will be having an early "Document Drop Off" day to help out. 
Monday, August 2nd from 9-2, come in and we will help you to upload documents and get your online registration completed.

JMMS Registration - Friday August 6, 2021 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm

Since all APS students register online, registration should go pretty quickly. Please make sure your online registration has an APPROVED status in ParentVue to be complete. Pre-registration was completed in the Spring where students choose their electives, all students need to have a complete on-line registration in order to receive a schedule.

Friday, August 6th from 9-3 students will need to come in and get their ID pictures taken, pick up schedules and get a Chromebook if they do not yet already have one.

You will have the opportunity to purchase JMMS Spirit Wear.

A computer lab will be available if you need to complete online registration and upload proof of residency or shot records.

Fill out free and reduced lunch forms; this helps us tremendously with potential future funding. 

Meet our fantastic Parent Involvement Group (PIG), and sign up to join or just get questions answered.

Picture ID – Make up Day - Monday August 9, 2021 from 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm

We will have a makeup picture ID evening on Monday, August 9th from 3-8pm if you are not able to make it on the 6th.  These will be our only picture days for ID's so please try to attend one of the picture times.  Schedules will not be given out on Monday evening but you will be able to print them from ParentVue prior to school starting.

6th Grade – Jump start Day - Tuesday August 10, 2021 from 1:30 pm to 2:55 pm

Incoming 6th Grade Jump Start will be on Tuesday, August 10th from 1:30 - 2:55.

All incoming 6th graders are highly encouraged to attend our Jump Start day on 8/10/2021.  Students will need to be dropped off by 1:25 and picked up at 2:55.  The parent pick up/drop off is on the East side of the school. 

They will follow their schedule starting with 1st period.  Not to worry; there will be plenty of adults guiding students on where to go! 

Please come dressed in Dress Code and wear a mask. 

Students do not need to bring their Chromebook, but bring a folder with paper and pencil to jot down notes.

Students will need to bring a print out of their Class Schedule.

We look forward to seeing everyone!

Thank you,
