Veteran's Day Assembly

On 11-11-19, Jamison celebrated our veterans and active members of our military in a special way. In conjunction with the Travis Manion Foundation, we spent time thanking our service members for all that they did and continue to do! They certainly live out the motto, "If not me, then who..."

A Season of Thanks...

Thank you to all of our community members who donated food and / or gift cards to our Holiday Food Drive and Giving Tree projects. Our community is certainly "others-centered".

Playground Update

Our playground renovation is now at Phase 2 of our plans. This summer our new swings were installed. This week, our old playground structure is being taken down in preparation for the new playground structure to be installed. The students are certainly excited!

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.

November’s Winner:

· Luka Jonjic

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:

· Jasmarie Flores-Melgar

· Matthew Gairo

· Brigid Jonas

· Aubrey Lewis

· Michael Patrone

· Nate Pinchuk

Honorary Jets:

Each month, someone in our JET community will be recognized for all that he/she does for our building. November’s award recipients were the veterans from our community. We thank them for their dedication and service to our country!
