- Cardboard Boat Race— Each year Jamaica HS runs a cardboard boat regatta where teams of students get together to design, build and race cardboard boats in the pool. We’d love to make this a community event Team names, captains and advisors are due to Mr. Pecorino (JHS Science teacher) by January 15th.
- Finals Week: Students are allowed to dress down all week, or they may wear their QC uniforms. It’s their choice. Obviously, clothing must be appropriate for a school environment, and devoid of any disrespectful, revealing, or gang-related graphics or designs.
- Field trip to Lincoln Center on Friday, January 30 to see a play, “100 years of American Humor”. We will depart from QC at 8:45am. Electronics are allowed. Lunch: students should bring a bag lunch or money for food (suggested $10). As always, students may receive lunch from the cafeteria prior to leaving, but this must be ordered before 1/20/09.
