On April 10, 9 JHS students and Mrs. Austen Malley traveled to Springfield, MO to compete in different areas at the Missouri Future Business Leaders of America – Phi Beta Lambda State Leadership Conference.  Over 5,000 students and advisers came together with over 150 business education related contests running during the event; contest topics range from accounting to website design, marketing to mobile application development.  This was a great experience for all that attended.  
BIG NEWS!!  Evan Cory placed 3rd in Business Law and has qualified to compete in Nationals this summer in Baltimore, Maryland.  We are so proud of Evan and would like to help him be able to attend nationals at the end of June.  It is going to cost around $900 in travel and accommodations to Baltimore and sightseeing in Washington D.C.  The school district is going to put funds toward this exciting adventure but there will be other expenses that are not currently covered.  If you would like to aid Evan in this amazing experience, you can send your support to the school, marked for Evan, and we will make sure it is put toward his trip.  
Congratulations, Evan!!!
Well done, Eagles!

Boys Basketball Sectionals
February 27, 2018
Senior boys

    On Tuesday, February 27, Jamestown spirit was at an all-time high. Our boys basketball team was playing in sectionals, something that has not happened since 1980!  They would be traveling to Sturgeon to battle the Chamois Pirates.  

But before they could head out, the school sent them off with a pep assembly that included a lip sync battle between teammates and our Athletic Director, E.H. Hirschvogel.  
E.H. lip sync
While the boys did a great job, Coach Hirschvogel rocked the house and won the battle.  The senior boys were presented with “District Champs” t-shirts, given to them by the t-shirt company, with their name and number on the back.  
Many people from the community came to the pep assembly to show their support for our boys.  From the church marquees to small signs made by elementary students, signs of support filled the streets of town all along the route the bus would take to the interstate.  Many supporters traveled to
Sturgeon to watch the boys take on Chamois.  While the game did not go the Eagles’ way, losing 43-37, the school and community are very proud of our boys and their amazing season, with an over all season record of 26-3.  
Thank you, Eagles, for your hard work and dedication. 
 You have made us all proud!

"There's No Place Like Home"-coming
JHS Homecoming and ESPN3 Live Broadcast
February 2, 2018
ESPN3 Broadcast
January 29 - February 2, JHS had its annual homecoming week. The theme was based on the "Wizard of Oz" movie.  The Student Council did a great job planning the dress-up days and many students (and teachers) participated throughout the week.  Elementary students created door posters and the high school students made posters to hang in the gym.  To add to the excitement of homecoming week, we learned that ESPN3 would be coming on Friday night to live-stream the boys' basketball game against Bunceton.  
Because of the set-up of the broadcast crew on Friday, the pep rally had to be held Thursday afternoon.  It was loud, crazy and a lot of fun.  Students came to school on Friday full of school spirit and dressed to show it off for Spirit Day.  
The evening festivities started with the Music Department hosting a taco dinner to raise money for their upcoming trip to perform at Graceland.  The cafeteria was full and the Music Department appreciates the support of the community.  
The high school choir did a great job performing the Star Spangled Banner prior to the start of the games.  The Lady Eagles' game started at 5:30 to a packed house.  The girls played with a lot of heart and energy but just could not pull off a win against the Lady Dragons.  
The Eagles' game started at 7:02 (for broadcast purposes) and after a little bit of a slow start, the boys played a great game.  The Eagles defeated the Dragons with a score of 86-27, improving their record to 19-2 for the season.  Everyone got a lot of playing time and the crowd enjoyed watching the game.  ESPN3 named Garrett Wolfe player of the game and Rod Smith from KRCG13 came over to get some footage of our homecoming for the 10:00 news.  Watch that video here or here.
At halftime of the boys' game, the alumni Sapphires performed a routine and the current Sapphire and the boys' basketball team entertained the crowd at the completion of the boys' game.  Following the Sapphires' dance, it was time for the coronation of the Homecoming Royalty.  Anna Scheperle and Tristan Jones were crowned Princess and Prince.  Emily Strein and Cole Theissen were crowed Queen and King.  The night ended with the Homecoming Dance for the Jr. High and High School students and their guests.
Thank you to our fans that came out to support the school!
Well done, Eagles!

 Earlier in the evening, Trenton and the rest of the Eagles basketball team defeated the Class 2 #3 state-ranked Fayette Falcons in the Slater Tournament with a score of 60-25.  The Eagles improved their record to 16-1 on the season and earned their coach, Seth Thomas, his 50th career win.  The Eagles advanced to the championship game vs. the Class 2 #1 ranked Sacred Heart Gremlins.  While the championship game did not go their way, the Eagles played hard and the community came out in impressive fashion to support them.
Well done, Eagles!
