    Aargh, Mateys!  The fall book fair is coming soon, and Ms. Baggett needs your help.  She is collecting Paper Towel and Toilet Paper rolls.  So consider recycling those empty rolls, instead of tossing them.  She is also collecting small "treasures" for her treasure chest.  If you have small toys, stickers, books, stuffed animals that are ready for a new home, please donated them today.  Remember, "One man's trash is another man's treasure!"

JHPA is committed to ensure students fulfill their dreams through our rigorous school programs, assessments and committed community outreach. We strive to lead our students to become independent, critical thinkers, and life-long learners while fostering a respect for diversity within a global society.
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.  To this end, the IB works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.  These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
