 District Updates 

start with hello logo

Jane Addams Middle School values inclusion, empathy and fostering a safe and positive school culture. 



They were recognized as one of this year’s recipients of the Sandy Hook Promise “Start with Hello Week Award”. Sandy Hook Promise (SHP), which is a school violence prevention organization, launched the awards in tandem with the larger Start With Hello Week national campaign to recognize school efforts to prevent bullying and violence.


SHP selected JAMS from hundreds of submissions across the country. Start With Hello (SWH) is a program designed to help students break the ice, overcome social barriers, and get to know one another in order to create and sustain an inclusive culture and school community.  


Congratulations to all JAMS students and staff that made this accomplishment a reality. You make our community proud!

JAMS Huddle for Good

Jane Addams Middle School recently partnered with WE Schools and the NFL to participate in the Huddle for Good, which aims to inspire people to make meaningful and lasting contributions to their communities. The JAMS Leadership class planned a homeless care package drive. They created public service announcements, presentations, and the Bengal News spread the word out about their cause. JAMS students created 300 homeless care packages by contributing over 10,000 volunteer minutes in just one day! The care packages were delivered to homeless individuals in Skid Row. 


Check out this NFL morning show segment where the WE organization talks about Huddle for Good. All the footage came from JAMS. We are so proud to see our students working hard to bring compassion to our city.
