National Bullying Prevention Month is a great time for schools, organizations, and individuals to raise awareness about bullying and the role we all play in making a difference.
Every day thousands of young people experience bullying from their peers while at school, after school in their neighborhoods, and even when they are at home, through social media and texts. There are many ways to support bullying prevention as an individual or with friends and family, and within your school or community.
In observance of National Bullying Prevention Month the Jolliff Middle School Counselors are sponsoring a Poster Contest, if you are interested please read the details on the Poster Contest here.
Together against bullying. UNITED for kindness, acceptance and inclusion.
Make it ORANGE and make it end! What are your true colors when it comes to showing that you believe that all youth should be safe from bullying? Come together in one giant ORANGE message of hope and support, WEAR AND SHARE ORANGE to color our nation, and even the world, visibly showing that our society believes that no child should ever experience bullying.
In an effort to ensure the academic success of all JMS students, we will hold study hall/homework help sessions on Tuesdays and Wednesdays after school. During study hall, select faculty members will be available to help students with assignments. If you would like your child to attend study hall please fill out the required form and submit to their homeroom teacher. Bus transportation is provided but if you prefer to pick up your student, please arrive no later than 4:45 pm.
Parents and Guardians: Log into your ParentVue accounts during the month of September to verify your student’s information online. Student Online Verification is replacing the blue cards that were sent home in previous years for each student. This new process allows you to verify the information for all children in your household at one time.

This year’s theme focuses on students thinking about the different platforms of self-expression and using mediums of artwork in dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, photography or visual arts to tell messages about themselves.
- What is Reflections? This is a national program where students can compete by providing positive recognition for their artistic efforts.
- How do I participate? Students select a genre of interest, create a piece for that category and submit it for judging following pre-determined criteria. All pieces must include an entry form packet that can be downloaded from the PTA webpage. We ask that you do NOT enter your student entries via the online entry portal. Please submit student entries to your local PTA per the rules listed in the “How to Enter” section of the Student Packet.
- When are the pieces due? Pieces are due no later than October 25th before the end of the school day.
- Where do you turn the pieces in for judging? Students turn pieces into the main office where they will be collected for judging.
