    JMB students are off to a good start, and I look forward to a great homecoming week. This year's theme is the Neon 80s. Monday is anything but a backpack day.

Students have also been reminded that the code of conduct and dress code are still in effect during school spirit days. The ticket sale process started with upper-classmen. Upper-classmen

    The Clipper crew and students had a great first week back to school. It was good to have students back in the building. I thought the students did a great job getting through the hallways, used their cell phones, and did well with their hats and hoods. Moving forward, please encourage your student to make sure their bellies are not showing. Students with bellies showing will be encouraged to change or modify their attire to comply with the dress code. If a student is none compliant, they will complete their classwork in an alternative setting. The last day to request a schedule change

  • Curbing Cellphone Use

    As we are entering the 2022-23 school year, I wanted to take time on behalf of the faculty and staff of James M. Bennett High School with a request to please help us in curbing student cell phone use during the school day. Without question, the number one distraction and barrier to a majority of our students’ learning and success is an increased need to be connected to their cell phones at all times. It has become an epidemic of its own, and we need your help

  • Welcome 9th Grade

    Greetings New Clippers! I hope the first part of your summer has been wonderful. I know I have enjoyed the slower pace that comes with summer, but I miss the sound of student voices that brings our building to life. As we near the middle part of July, I wanted to take a moment to welcome you to JMB and introduce myself and a few key staff that will be able to help navigate freshman year. I also want to share a few reminders.

    Some of our students and staff are on the end of the year count down, while others are thinking about all they need to accomplish before the year ends. As I reviewed progress report grades, I noticed a few of our students had some pretty low progress report grades and have some work to do before school ends. If you haven't already done so, be sure to check the family portal and encourage your students to finish strong. For those who have struggled this year, summer school will be at no cost and transportation will be provided. Be sure to check out the details below. We had a great Rising Senior night
