Pajama Spirit Day
This year, Target gave away money to schools all over the country for a simple act: a vote. JLA staff and students set a goal of 400 votes. If we reached our goal, students AND staff would earn a Pajama Spirit Day. Well, we did it! Here we are enjoying our first Spirit Day for the 2013-2014 school year. Go Jaguars!
