As you are most likely aware, the HISD Board
of Trustees voted on February 11th to rename A. S. Johnston MS. The school has
served the community at its present location since 1960. The JMS Principal Mr.
Sanders created a simple 2 question Survey.
He has asked for community input. The link is: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/9M8LNPP
Editorial comment: JMS is a well-loved and well
regarded community school. Not only do the zoned students from Westbury and
other nearby neighborhoods attend, but JMS is a well-regarded Fine Arts magnet
school that draws many students from all over the city. We are blessed in this
area to have our children able to attend Parker elementary and its award
winning Music magnet program, before heading on to MS at JMS and then on to WHS
where the Fine Arts program was reinstated last month. People don't refer to
Westbury as Jazz-bury for no reason!
