We are seeking volunteers to be Friday Fun Door Greeters at our school. If you have a friendly smile and love welcoming students and staff, we would be thrilled to have you join us in creating a warm and inviting atmosphere once a month on a Friday. Sign up today and be a part of making our school a welcoming place for everyone!
  • Lunchroom Hero - Daytime Hours F: Lunch is a fun and busy time of day in middle school. Lunchroom Volunteers help with transition and with keeping lunch and recess running smoothly. This is a vital role to the function of the entire school. Volunteering is a GREAT opportunity to give back to your school community and see your students in their natural element. Grandparents are welcome! TWO volunteers are needed every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday during all three lunch periods. Please sign up for one or more shifts, if you can. Thank you for supporting our Rhinos!
  • Rhino Store Icon - Daytime Hours F: The JPMS Rhino Store is where students can "spend" Rhino Bucks earned from hard work and good deeds, as given by their teachers. Rhino store volunteers will help students use their earned Rhino Bucks to select food, toys and other items. Students can cash in their Rhino bucks only during their own lunch period.
