Every year we have a 'Safe And Caring' assembly to inform all students of the expected behavior and conduct we want to see at JFS. We discuss our Safe and Caring rules for the classroom, the playground, and how each child has an individual responsibility to keep JFS a great place to learn. This year we had student leaders create skits to demonstrate proper and improper behavior. They were entertaining and the messages were student centered. Many thanks to our 6th grade leaders: Allison Y., Anisha S., Ashley K., Ethan L., Jay M., Katelyn T., Marcus W., Max L., Ritu B., Sophia C., Tiffany L.,.
