We are looking for a few people to help put together a Winter Social for March 9th!  You and/or a team of your friends would need to pull together a committee to book a DJ, organize sales of tickets, coordinate a decorating committee etc. With the success of Homecoming we do see this on a smaller scale!
The countdown is on….Senior Week will be here before we know it. We are looking for volunteers to chair the Senior Week committee. This entails putting together activities for the Seniors during the week of 4/22-4/26 and coordinating two teams, one to handle the Pancake Breakfast, the other to handle the Senior BBQ both to be held on Senior Seminar Day 5/23!
Teacher Appreciation Week – Volunteers are needed to chair the committee and assist with activities still to be determined, during the week of 5/6-5/10!



Our events have had a great response so far this year, please help us to finish the year strong.  If you are interested in helping with any or all of these events please email the PTO at johnjayhspto@gmail.com
