Make A Difference / Jamison Pour House

Ms. Young, and The Make A Difference kids, will be hosting a Make A Difference night at the Jamison Pour House on Wednesday, December 9th, from 5PM to 9PM. 15% of the food sales will go to the M.A.D. program.

Thank you for support of the Dance-a-thon and the Candy Drive!

We would like to thank the community for your support of the Dance-a-thon. The Make a Difference Kids will be using some of the money to provide the children living in the Homeless Shelter in Doylestown with warm pajamas for the winter.

We would also like to thank the community for their generosity during the candy drive…we delivered about 500 pounds of candy to the Ronald McDonald house.

GRUBS work day...

Thank you to all the families and Jamison staff that came out on November 7th to get dirty to keep our school clean. With a great turnout, the community assisted with leaf collection, weeding, and mulching to make our school look beautiful. On behalf of the entire staff, THANK YOU for your time and dedication to our school.
