Announcing…Amazon Smiles to Benefit Jones PTO

Happy Summer Jones Families!
Who shops on Amazon?

The PTO is betting that most of us make Amazon purchases more frequently than we’d like to admit. This is why our latest fundraising effort will hopefully be a no brainer, as we are continually looking for ways to streamline our fundraising efforts.

Anytime you make a purchase on Amazon and follow the link below, 0.5% of your money spent will go to the Jones PTO. It is that easy! It has been tested by a few PTO Board members and it works exactly like a regular Amazon order. Shop away!

To begin shopping on Amazon and support the Jones PTO, simply follow this link below and shop as usual.  Thank you for your support of the Jones PTO!

Summer’s Best,

Happy Spring!

Dear JMS Families and Community,

Happy Spring!

New Tree
Last August one of the sugar maple trees that frames the entrance to the Jones Middle School campus was discovered to be diseased and had the potential to become hazardous through instability and loss of branches. It was determined for the safety of students and staff that it needed to be removed. Jones Middle School and Jones PTO agreed to plant a new sugar maple tree to replace the diseased tree.  Both Jones PTO and Indian Guides of Upper Arlington helped provide the budget for the new tree.

On March 17th Davey Tree Experts delivered the sugar maple to Jones Middle School using a tree spade truck and it was planted where the previous tree had been located. The new tree is a mature sugar maple tree (about 18’ tall and 6 inches in diameter) and we trust it will provide beauty for the Jones campus for many years to come!

Secrets of a UA High School Parent Forum
To all 8th grade parents:  Join the Upper Arlington High School PTO for “Secrets of a UA High School Parent” – a lively hour of Question & Answer – on Wednesday April 12th at 7:00 p.m. at the UAHS West Cafeteria.  Worried about your middle schooler’s transition to high school?  Worried about your transition?  All you always wanted to know but were afraid –or didn’t know – to ask.  Bring your questions and our panel of knowledgeable High School parents will answer as many questions as they can.  You can also join the PTO for $25!  See you there.
