JET Assembly / Earth Day Celebration
On Friday, April 29th, Jamison Elementary held its monthly assembly. This month's focus was EARTH Day. After our positive awards ceremony, the GRUBS Ecology committee along with the Earth Day Committee presented an overview of Jamison's Earth Day. A new word was born..."Manyones"! This word was a take off from the 2015-2016 building theme of ONE. Students are aware that ONE person can make a difference; however, now they know that MANYONES can make a bigger impact. The day was a success! The CB Cares Foundation gave Jamison $1,000.00 for our Earth Day projects. Additionally, and more importantly, we honored the Marzo Family by unveiling the new "Mrs. Marzo's Strawberry Patch." Students, staff, and community members will now have a place to gather, pick strawberries, and remember the positive influence Mrs. Marzo had on our building.
Overall, what a great day...570 students giving back, getting dirty, and helping make our building look great!

If you choose to donate, please put the donations in the box outside the main office area on May 4th, 5th, or 6th. Items will be picked up at the end of each of those three days.

Jet Ticket Winners:
When students are “caught being good”, a Jamison staff member can recognize their behavior by giving them a JET Ticket. The student must write his/her name on the ticket and circle the appropriate character trait (Respect / Responsibility / Safe Community / Sportsmanship). Students place the JET Tickets in the Ticket Box located outside of the Main Office. Then, three students from grades K-3 and three students from grades 4-6 are randomly drawn at our monthly assembly and are given Jet T-Shirts.
Each month, someone in our JET community will be recognized for all that he/she does for our building.
- April’s award recipients are Mrs. Trisha Waugh and Mr. Rob Hessler for their dedication to the Jamison students by organizing and running the IRun4Life program.
