Community service opportunity of the week and Cancer awareness Month - This Saturday is the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life in Palm Desert. It begins at Palm Desert High school at 9am with a walk for survivors, and continues for 24 hours.  It's a great way to show your support for those who are going through cancer treatment as well as to celebrate the victory of those who have survived. You can come and walk for just part of the time with a small donation. See Mrs. Middlebrook if you would like more information.


Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre - Attn RedHawks:  Tickets are still available to this year's murder mystery dinner theatre, "The Return of Rock N. Roley".  This event sells out every year so don't wait until the last minute.  If you enjoy a good mystery then you'll love this one.  It combines mystery with good old rock n' roll music.  Tickets are $18 and they include a complete dinner provided by Mimi's.  You must buy your tickets by Thursday afternoon.  Ask an Advanced Drama Student or see Ms. Schwimmer for to buy yours.  There won't be any tickets available at the door.  Don't miss out on this annual tradition.


Spelling Bee - The JGMS Spelling Bee will take place on Thursday, November 20 in the MPR.  Sign-ups are in Mrs. Doherty's room 410.  You can pick up a word list to study for the competition.  Students who participate will receive 2 AOI points; the winner and alternate will receive 3 points.  The winner of the JGMS Spelling Bee will represent our school at the District Spelling Bee on December 17.
