Hand On Learning Activities (HOLA)

This is JSS’s very popular after-school learning and fun program.  Several times each year you will receive a schedule of offerings, everything from Legos to a school newspaper to soccer to fairy houses to cooking, which take place Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3:15 to 4:30 for seven weeks.  Prices are kept reasonable and scholarships are available.  Look for information coming home and in the newsletter.

Holiday Store

In December we host a holiday store in the lobby to sell JSS items (mugs, water bottles, t-shirts, etc.) as well as assorted toys and crafts for holiday gift giving.  The tables are staffed by volunteers and all proceeds benefit the JSS PTO.

How Schools Work

This is a program to help caregivers who are new to the United States and/or the school system navigate their child’s education.
