Both in person and virtual seventh grade students were involved with watching and asking questions during the live presentation. Students learned about the importance of dairy products, how dairy cows are milked, and the life cycle of a dairy cow. Thank you to the Georgia Mobile Dairy Classroom for spending some time with our students!

  • Four NJMS students participate in Music in Our Schools Month video

    We are so proud of our four NJMS students (6th Grade: Elizabeth Childress, Guadalupe Coyt, Skyla Hart; 8th Grade: Rebecca Stancil) who participated in the NCMEA Music In Our Schools Month Music Advocacy Project. These students reflected on the importance of music in their lives. They discussed how they missed "traditional school", but participating in chorus and music virtually has increased their confidence. Also, singing virtually has allowed them to feel more comfortable engaging in school work, and other activities they've had to participate in online. Please take a few moments to watch the video and listen to their inspiring stories! Great job students and Ms. Crouch! https://youtu.be/XVVwZ-Sa4ss
