MathCounts is a club that works to prepare for the MathCounts competition in

February. Students work on challenging and complex problems, as they get ready for

the sprint, target and team round of the competition. We look at many different

areas of math including algebra, geometry, puzzles, and probability.

If you are new to Palo Alto schools and would like to make new friends, join the

Newcomer’s Club. The club is open to anyone, not only newcomers. You’re welcome to

bring a friend whether the friend is new to Palo Alto or not. If you are not new to JLS

and would like to meet some newcomers, join us. Bring your lunch; there will be games

and snacks too.

Students will learn about Robin Hood through films and stories and discuss the legend

and the history.

Get actively involved, playing soccer to promote teamwork, friendship, and

sportsmanship. Students will improve their skills over the year. Boys, girls, and all

newcomers welcome. We meet on the fields on Fridays at lunch and pick teams.

Students will be able to watch cartoons starring their favorite superheroes like

Superman, Batman, Spiderman, Wonder Woman (basically any hero).

The tennis club is for tennis players of all skill levels to come out and play matches or

participate in tennis clinics to help improve their skills.

Take a mini-­‐break from reality and enjoy your lunch while watching classic cartoons

with your friends! Appreciate the early animation art form while meeting Tom and

Jerry, Fred and Barney, and maybe even Popeye and Olive Oil! Room location alternates

between Ms. Soong and Mrs. Constant.

Need a break from sitting in class? Feel like chatting? Come and do both, walk and talk

around the JLS athletic fields. Take a nice walk around the dirt track during lunch while

hanging out and chatting with friends. This is a great way to meet new people and have

fun too. Bring a friend!

Coach Creighton's wrestling club is designed to introduce students to the sport of

wrestling. Activities will include basic techniques, conditioning, film study and

meditation. The club is open to boys and girls.

Students who enjoy doing things for other people and learning about people and

cultures from other parts of the world should check out the YCS (Youth Community

Service) club. We will help plan mini service projects and also have the opportunity to

participate in a variety of community -­‐minded events throughout the year.
