November Conferences...Reflections

Thank you to all the parents and students that had an opportunity to experience our fall conferences. Many of you left school on Monday, November 24th, positive and upbeat about how well your child's teacher knows your son/daughter.

I also want to thank you for the support you, the parents, gave the teachers. I realize that the new reporting document is different from a typical report card, but many of you were able to embrace the change and gather the essential information it provided. We discuss change and flexibility with the children...thank you for modeling that as adults.

Girls On The Run!

Jet Awards...

We Salute You Award:

This is a monthly award given to a student that a staff member feels exemplifies “Nothing less than your Best!” This award can be given to a student that goes out of his/her way to help a friend, is a great classmate, and gives 110% in everything he/she does. This student receives a certificate at our monthly assembly as well as a Jamison Jet T-Shirt.

November’s Winner: Luca Giglio

Boomerang Award:

November Asset #30, Responsibility

· Winner – Yvonne Burke

· Nominees – Cameron Hill, Nikki Jacobsen, Delaney Jones, Lexi Magaha, Karl McLaughlin, Madlyn Mondoil

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.

November’s Winners:

· Morgan Bell

· Derek Staedtler

· Aashik Suresh

· Kevin Taylor

· Sophia Wasyliw

· Emily Wiesel

Honorary Jet:

Each month, someone in our JET community will be recognized for all that he/she does for our building.

  • November’s award recipient was Mr. Christopher Murphy, a library and classroom volunteer.
