Thank you! = JOSEPH ARTHUR MIDDLE SCHOOL Incident Reports As part of our PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support) program, students may be written incident reports for a variety of minor misbehaviors. Examples include: no ID card, forgotten Chromebook, unprepared, disrespectful words, etc. The intent of incident reports is to track these less serious behaviors to provide students the opportunity to correct their behavior. Homeroom teachers are to contact a students family when they receive two incident reports in a quarter. If a student receives three incident reports for the same type of behavior they will be issued an office referral and detention. It is our goal at JAMS to allow our students the opportunity to make good choices and to follow expectations. By utilizing incident reports, we are able to address behavioral concerns and allow students the opportunity to succeed. Extra-curricular Activities After some grueling tryouts and open gym dates, JAMS is proud to have selected our Winter Athletic teams. A big thank you to all who tried out! This years cheerleaders will be led by CES employee, Ms. Fournie. A Team basketball will be coached by Mr. Porter. B Team basketball will be coached by Mr. Bute, and 5/6 grade teams will be coached by Mr. Brunner. This years volleyball team will be led by Mrs. Ringler and Ms. Sears. All regular season games will typically be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Central Elementary School. The cost to attend is two dollars for adults and one dollar for students. Students and athletes need to be academically eligible to participate or attend extra-curricular activities. Most basketball players will ride the activity bus after school to CES for practice. Cheerleading practice will be held in the JAMS cafeteria and volleyball in the multipurpose room. All athletes are expected to have a ride home by the end of scheduled practice times.
