Library Dedications

Nineteen books were dedicated in memory of Martha Holmes from her Book Club Buddies.

"In honor of a dear friend and dedicated teacher, who challenged her students to reach great heights."


We Salute You Award:

This is a monthly award given to a student that a staff member feels is dedicated to being the best person they can be in all that they do. 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.

December’s Winner:

· Mary Walter

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.

December’s Winners:

· Autumn Barstow

· Emily Fine

· Jack Lanzidelle

· Ethan Philp

· Sloane Rizen

· Hannah Vandzura

December Boomerang Award:

Honesty – Young person tells the truth even when it is not easy.

Winner: Gwyneth Seery

Nominees: Emma Legg, Athan Sotiropoulos, Maxwell Vollman and Nathan Vollman

Honorary Jet:

Each month, someone in our JET community will be recognized for all that he/she does for our building. December’s award recipient was Dr. Nadine Garvin, Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education in CBSD. Thank you, Dr. Garvin, for all that you do for the Jamison staff, students and the entire school district.
