There are two days left to register for lunch service!  On November 16, the initial 3-month trial plan, selected by many families, will expire. With the renovation now complete and a full menu available, we are pleased to offer a one month extension to give our families an opportunity to experience all of the new selections as they prepare to sign up for the remainder of the school year.

Registration will remain open until November 15th. You must register on or before November 15th in order for your child to begin or continue the program when they return from Thanksgiving Break. Login to PlusPortals and choose Forms to make your selection. If you have already registered your child for the full year, there is no need to complete the registration form as your service will continue.

STRIVE

We often think of how thankful we are for all that God has blessed us with during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. To capture that holiday spirit and share it with others, JCS students and families have the opportunity to join together for STRIVE, an event where you can get involved with our ministry partners to help others during the holiday season. Bow Down Church, a church pastored by a JCS alumni in urban West Palm Beach and Edna Runner Tutorial Center, a place that help students in Jupiter to excel in school and life, are examples of the rewarding ways we can give back locally. Lower School families should keep their eyes open for a flyer that will come home in students' weekly folders with more information. Upper school students will receive a flyer on Thursday in chapel. In preparation for this season of giving, we ask that our JCS families pick up an extra toy or some holiday candy during the break to be ready for our collection that begins the day we get back from Thanksgiving break. We are excited to see what God will do for those in need this season through the generosity of our school!

Semester Exam Schedule

The second quarter is quickly coming to a close and Semester Exams are upon us. We are very proud of our students and all that they have accomplished during this first semester of the year. Exam week is scheduled for December 18 - 21, with a dismissal time of 11:55 a.m. each day. Important exam week reminders:

  • It is very important that students be well rested and present for all exams. Make-up exams are for emergencies only and require prior approval from my office.
  • Exams are from 8:00 – 11:55 p.m. Please drop your student off no later than 7:40 a.m. so that they can go to their locker and be in their assigned class and ready to start by 8:00 a.m.
  • Dismissal time is 11:55 a.m. daily.  Please allow your student at least five minutes to get out of class and get to car line.
  • If your student is not scheduled for an exam during a particular period, they are not required to be on campus. We will, however, be offering a study hall in the Media Center daily from 8:00 – 12:00 p.m. for your convenience for any student needing a place to study when they do not have an assigned exam to take.


Please see the attached Exam Schedule for more details. Please also assist us in encouraging our students to continue to work hard, to put their best effort forward, and to be faithful to reach their full potential inside and outside of the classroom. We are honored to stand with you in helping your child be all that he or she is called to be for Christ. Exam Schedule | Guided Practice Schedule.
