Clean Out Your Closet, and Help the JM Theater Department!
Calling all you 80s gals: We're betting you still have prom or bridesmaid dresses in your closet you'd love to get rid of. We can take those dresses and alter them into 50s party dresses, and it saves having to buy fabric. If you've got a dress you'd like to donate to the Grease costume closet, email Rose Pate , send it with a student, or drop it by the front office. Thursday @ 6pm is 11th grade parent night in the media center--bring the dress with you!

If your child did not attend JM last year, you will need to create a new account. Here is the link to the directions for creating that account.
To create the account, you will need your child's Access ID and Access password. You must pick this up ​in person, and you must have identification.
