OkMEA All-State Choir = A best-of-the-best choir consisting of students from across the state of Oklahoma. The auditions begin in October where 1,823 music students vied to pass 1st round to advance. The students compete, as a one-person team, based on talent only, and are up against schools size A-6A. The music is college level, 8 part pieces that consist of different genres and in different languages. Kayleigh Patterson not only passed 1st round auditions at ECU, but continued to pass 2nd round auditions at UCO and in turn gained a prestigious spot as a member of the 2023 OkMEA All-State Mixed Choir, the highest level choir achievable in Choral Music in the state of Oklahoma. Only 208 students survived both auditions to earn membership. Kayleigh represented Jones High School at the OkMEA State Music Convention in Tulsa over a grueling four day event, Jan. 18-21, 2023. She is now using her competitive skills to audition for a college scholarship to USAO where she has set her sights on receiving a Music Education degree and becoming the 3rd JHS student to enter the teaching ranks, as a music teacher, and to help other students hone their love for music (joining Allison Johnson (Oliver) and Joel Lane.) Please acknowledge and appreciate all of the hard work and sacrifice that Kayleigh and her parents (Trish Patterson and dad) put forth to achieve this honor on her own talent and merit. CONGRATULATIONS KAYLEIGH! Best of luck to you as you move forward and as always, keep making beautiful music! #greatdaytobealonghorn
Jones Public Schools will be remote learning for Wednesday, January 25 due to inclement weather. Stay warm!
Upcoming JHS Track & Field schedule:
Tonight's basketball game at Mcloud has been cancelled and will be rescheduled at a later date.
Junior Males: A representative of the American Legion Boys State and a representative from the Choctaw American Legion Unit that pays for Jones Student to attend Boys State will be at Jones High School at 12:45 on Friday in the commons giving presentation on Boys State and how to apply to be a delegate. All Junior Boys interested need to attend this presentation. See Mr. Moses if you have any questions. We also have staff members that participated in Boys State that I can connect you with.
We are, of course, watching the weather event predicted for tomorrow. We expect to see some snow, but we're hoping, with no ice predicted, it will not be significant enough to impact driving conditions. We've already started our procedures to keep sidewalks as clear and safe as possible. Unfortunately, we are on the boundary of this event , so we will have to continue to wait. There is the possibility that we can implement a remote learning day; however, the admin team will need to discuss this further before we make that decision. To be clear: we are currently anticipating regular instruction in class for tomorrow, but stay tuned.
Seniors!!! Due to the possibility for inclement weather, the senior ad deadline is extended to Friday, January 27th. You must let me know & start payments by the 27th if you want an ad. Otherwise, we will be cutting extra pages from the yearbook. Ad prices: full page $180; half-page $90; 1/4 page $70; 1/8 page $50. The yearbook staff can design the ad for you for an additional $20. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Girl's Varsity Basketball will play at 4:00 tomorrow at Mcloud, instead of 6:30. Please keep an eye out for further schedule changes should there be inclement weather. Thank you!
