ROAR Awards

This year, students will be recognized for going above and beyond to make JAE a better place. Staff members will be looking for students to nominate for the prestigious ROAR Awards. Students will have their pictures posted on the ROAR Wall of Fame, and they will receive a certificate. We are very excited about this new program that focuses on all of the positive attributes of our Jack Anderson students.
