Happy New Year 2014

I hope that each of the Jamison families are fortunate enough to have a happy and healthy New Year in 2014. I realize that it is a great time of year to focus on making reachable and self-improving goals. However, now that the "business" of the holidays have come and gone, please take this time to spend some quality time together, put the electronic gaming devices away, and play a board game or two. The entire Jamison Community is in my thoughts wishing you all the best in 2014.

Do you know a special teacher?

The Jamison HSA has asked for the following message be sent to our community:


The Bucks County Teacher of the Year program was created to recognize those educators who go above and beyond to help empower youth to achieve their goals and realize their dreams. We would like to recognize those educators who show a superior commitment to teaching, and who are making a difference in their classrooms by going above and beyond for their students.
