Message From the Principal

Drop-off & Pick-up

Please be respectful of all drivers and students during drop-off and pick-up times.   Traffic is busiest between 7:50 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.  and 2:45 p.m. – 3:25 p.m.  We ask that you practice the following to provide a safe drop off for all students.   Refer to the attached map for designated drop off areas. 

  • Pull as far forward as possible to allow other cars to enter the driveway.
  • Students should be prepared to exit the car on the curbside.
  • Check traffic before pulling away from the curb.   
  • No parking or stopping on either side of the median.   This will prevent students from crossing traffic when entering the building.  
  • Park in the south parking spaces if you need to enter the school.  Do not park along the curb or median. 
  • Establish a meeting place on Hickory for pick-up to alleviate traffic congestion.

Three Part Lecture Series on Supporting Your Children in Challenging Times

You are invited to Part II of a three part series presented by Dr. Mazius and the North Shore Center.  The series is focused on supporting children in challenging times.   Part II - Setting the Stage for Autonomy and Success: How Parents Can Use Technology to Foster Independence at School will be held in the JLMS Library at 7:00pm, Thursday, December 6. 

During Part I, Dr. Mazius shared strategies to help parents balance the natural desire to protect children and the students need for independence.   Parents learned that a rewards and punishment system only works to change a child’s behavior in the short term.  Dr. Mazius educated parents on how to build a child’s intrinsic motivation in order to impact long-term success.  

Building Intrinsic Motivation

  1. Provide children time to do things fort hemselves.
  2. Listen to your child (give them a voice).
  3. Let children fail in order to learn how to succeed (provide scaffolds for success and let children try on their own).
  4. Pay attention to the degree we control children.
