What’s happening at Journey Middle School?

On Feb. 16, a few classes went on a ski trip to Mt. Washington for a big field trip.

They spent the whole day there on fresh snow and had a blast skiing and snowboarding all over the hill.

After the day was done, they got back on the bus and had a special dinner and arrived home a few hours later.

Thank you Mrs. Wilkie for all your help organizing this awesome event, and to all the chaperons for all their hard work too.

Today (Feb. 24), we are going to wear pink shirts support anti-bullying in all of our public schools.  Students and staff are encouraged to wear pink and even do an extra act of kindness that day.

On Thursday (Feb. 25) JMS presents the Bring on Spring dance. It is going to be from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m. in the gym.

Thank you for reading and as always; People Run to Be Here, So Run to Read Us.

A little poem to get you in the spring mood.

Flowers

Roses, tulips, flowers in general beauty and

Divine different colors trying to blossom.

If you don’t let them grow then you’ll never

Know. Find the beauty in which they glow.

Autumn they fall spring they grow which leaves

Red and yellow.
