Zaxby’s Night for WJMS – Tuesday, May 14th
WJMS has a wonderful fund raising opportunity through Zax-by’s that will earn students and teachers free food as well as provide much needed funds to help WJMS purchase a new sound system for the gym.
All you need to do is eat at the Highway 53 / Braselton loca-tion between 4:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 14th. A percentage of the sales will be given directly to WJMS. The more people that participate, the more money WJMS will earn. Be sure to tell your family, friends, and neighbors.
In addition, students will have an opportunity to demonstrate their drawing skills by draw-ing a picture of Zaxby’s mascot, LZ. Zaxby’s will then select two winners from each grade level, and those students will win a free meal.
The WJMS Choruses will have their final performances of the year tonight. The sixth grade chorus will perform at 6:30 p.m. (Call time is 6:00 p.m.) The seventh grade chorus will also perform on May 13th at 7:30 p.m. (Call time is 7:15 p.m.) The eighth grade chorus will perform the following evening, Tuesday, May 14th, at 6:30 p.m. (Call time is 6:00 p.m.) All concerts will take place at the JCCHS auditorium and are free and open to the public. Songs include hits by Phillip Phillips, Matisyahu, Swedish House Mafia, and others. Come out and hear us make music!
