Welcome to the start of another great year at our wonderful school! Our dedicated staff and energetic parents have been busy preparing for the return of our students and community. We hope you will join us in making JLMS the best place for learning and growing during your child’s middle school years. 

We invite you to join the James Lick PTSA, our Parent, Teacher, and Student Association. The PTSA supports programs offered by staff and enriches our community life at James Lick. PTSA general meetings will be held on Tuesday evenings as follows: August 24, September 21, November 16, January 18, February 15, and April 19. Your participation makes our community stronger and the school an even better environment for our kids. 

There are many volunteer opportunities throughout the year, but here are some ways you can connect and help us now: 

Our first PTSA Meeting/Potluck: Tuesday, August 24, 6-8 pm (location to be announced). Always a crowd-pleaser. You’ll meet a bunch of other parents and hear about plans for the year and find out how you can help. 

Clean Up Day: Saturday, August 28, from 10 to 3. Everybody is welcome—roll up your sleeves and fulfill teacher housekeeping wishlists to keep the school beautiful! More hands make light work and an immediate impact for students and staff. 

Staying informed about what’s going on at school is easy—join the James Lick Yahoo Group for all the latest news. Go to
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/JamesLick/ and sign up, or email Wendy Brummer, PTSA communications team lead, at mwzf @ yahoo.com to be added to the email list. 

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!
