Categories are Scariest, Most Original/Creative, Funniest, and Group (2-5 people). All costumes must be school appropriate and students who choose not to wear a costume may dress down for a $1 donation to the Jenks Student Council.
The MSA uniform policy does not allow hoodies or jackets to be worn in class and students are encouraged to wear either a blue or white sweater or wear a long-sleeve shirt underneath the navy blue polo shirt. We are aware that students claim the 3rd floor is "cold" but now that the heat is turned on (and rising to the top floor) temperatures are often so warm in classrooms that teachers need to open windows. Navy blue JS Jenks hoodies are permitted.
Representatives from Girls' High will be visiting the 8th grade girls this Thursday morning.
Friday, November 2nd, is an early dismissal day with students being dismissed at 12noon.
School is closed Tuesday, November 6, for Election Day and Monday, November 12, in observance of Veteran's Day.
Report Card conferences for the 1st quarter are scheduled for November 7th, 8th, and 9th. Notices and a complete schedule will be sent home with students this Friday.
Thank you for the continued support of your child's education!
