    6th Grade Orientation Sign-up, Band Information

    Orientation at JCMS will be virtual this school year.  In an effort to familiarize 6th graders to JCMS we will host small group tours so your child will know the layout of the building and understand what their schedule will be.  One parent/guardian may accompany each 6th grader and masks must be worn throughout the tour.  Sign up, for 6th grade students only, is on a first come first serve basis at:

    Secondly, we are still allowing students to request participation in band/orchestra for the 20-21 school year.  We will be having sign-ups for 6th grade band and orchestra instruments on the front lawn of the school.  This is a drop-in style event, in that you don’t have to be there the entire time, and you don’t have to be there right when it begins if you cannot make it. Instrument choices for band are the flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet and trombone. Instrument choices for orchestra are the violin, viola and cello. We want students to have a 1st and 2nd choice of instrument in mind, as sign-ups are done on a first come, first serve basis. Representatives from Fullers Music store will be present to help answer questions regarding renting or purchasing an instrument.  Masks must be worn to this event. Date to be announced. 

    Please contact the school with any questions. 

    Address Updates

    We are working on the plan for your child’s safe return to school on August 17th.  As you may know, the governor announced schools will return at 50% student capacity to start the 20-21 school year.  Less students will allow for sufficient social distancing until the Coronavirus passes.  We are currently working on splitting our student population into two groups.  If your family changed addresses over the summer, it is very important that new addresses are shared now, so we can lessen the capacity of school buses. 

    Please call Jacksonville Commons Middle School, (910)-346-6888, to share any new address or contact information you have between 8 and 3:30. Updated proof of address information like electric and water bills can be shared through email.

    Thanks so much, and we look forward to sharing more with our families very soon.
