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