11th GRADE FAMILIES – WE NEED YOU!  Once a month, families from each class show their appreciation for the staff by hosting a meal, snack, or treat.  February is the month for Junior families to provide lunch to our amazing staff.  Boosters Hospitality makes this happen through your donations.  If you would like to help, donations can be sent via the link below OR can be sent to the office marked, “11th Grade Staff Lunch.”  Thank you so much!  Signed, Boosters!

THANK YOU FOR SUBMITTING YOUR VACCINATION STATUS  Each year, schools must report their vaccination statistics which are held in a database with the State of Colorado.  We appreciate every family’s efforts to help us report accurately.  Our school is divided into two groups, the high school and the junior high with Summit Academy students included.  Please click HERE to access our high school statistics and a link to more information. 

THOUGHT OF THE WEEK:  CELEBRATING OUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS  If you have not already followed us on social media, you are missing out on some major basketball accomplishments!  Mark Sharpley recently earned his 450th win; 492nd if you include his wins with the Girls Varsity team.  Additionally, Caleb Nolan and Helen Stegner both scored their 400th point of their careers at Ball Arena on the same night!  It is a testament to the will, dedication, and work ethic of our athletes and coaches that all of these accomplishments occurred in the last month!  Congratulations and thank you for representing the values of JA!

Have a great week, Jags!
