After School Programs

2020 Chili Cook off Winners: 1st Place: Carol St. Amand, 2nd Place: Rita Dietrich, 3rd Place: Caleb and Joey Gloster.  Congratulations!!


The Ski Club will begin on Wednesday, January 8th.  Please remember to leave for school a little earlier than usual.  Traffic tends to back up with those getting dropped off with ski equipment.  When you arrive please put all of your ski equipment in the Music Assembly before school on Wednesdays.  At the end of the day, gather all of your things, including homework and meet in the Music Assembly.  We will not have access into the building when we get back from skiiing.  The ski bus will leave shortly after all of the school buses have been loaded.  See Mrs. Laramee in room 203 for any questions.


The JBMS After-School Program will complete the fall programming on December 12th.  Our Ski-Club enrollment is now full, and is scheduled on Wednesdays during the months of January and February. The After-School Programming at JBMS will start the second session in early February. Please attend our annual Chili-Cook-Off on Thursday, January 30th. We will hold raffles as well as food items for sale! All proceeds go directly to fund programming for the JBMS After School Program. 

The JBMS After School Program will be hosting the annual chili cook-off event on Thursday, January 30th from 5:00-7:30 PM.  Tickets are $5.00 if purchased in advance or $8.00 at the door.  If you would like to enter your chili in the competition, click on the registration form below.  If you have any questions, please contact Melissa Gramuglia at
