VOLUNTEER BACKGROUND CHECKS

WEB – WHERE EVERYONE BELONGS
WEB stands for Where Everyone Belongs! Being new to the school, 6th graders are typically nervous, have tons of questions, or simply just need some encouragement and support. And for that…we have 7th and 8th grade WEB leaders! 6th graders will be guided by WEB leaders on their first day of school on Sept. 7th and will spend time getting to know them through fun activities.
FREE MEALS TO ALL STUDENTS
School meals will be available FREE to all students in 4J schools throughout the 2022–23 school year, thanks to the extension of a federal program that makes it possible to provide the meals at no cost to families. However, we are still asking families to fill out the application for free meals, as it helps keep the funding for this in our schools. https://www.mymealtime.com/
