Jasper Middle School: Where Dragon Nation Begins… By Helping Dragons Become GREENER!

Jasper Middle is excited to announce the launch of their new Pride Patrol Recycling Team, composed of dedicated and diligent 5th and 6th grade students.  Members of this team were required to complete an application process including personal references– in preparation for the work world.  Because JMS is such a large campus, selected member were divided into five section teams and assigned section leaders.

The Pride Patrol will collect all JMS recyclables on Wednesday mornings from 8:00-8:30 am, before homeroom begins. Since recycling is a habit that must be practiced daily, the Pride Patrol will be encouraging their peers and even family members do their part to separate recyclables from rubbish!   Mrs. Jennie Smith, School Counselor and Team Sponsor, would like to thank each member for their diligence and cooperation in completing a successful launch!
