 PTSA & School Committees:

Powered by You JSIS! 5 Hour Pledge
Outside of the core academic curriculum, most of the things that enrich our children's education at JSIS happen because of parent involvement.  We are very fortunate to have so many talented and dedicated families working together to make our school the best it can be.

We ask that every family
donate at least 5 volunteer hours per year to support our school.  If every family participates we can put on community events, create new programs and sustain current programs.

See a Need, Fill a Need. Check out the different activities below and find out how you can best contribute your time to these efforts.
