Awards

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.

September’s Winner:

· Shaun Mannala


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.


September 4th Winners:

Honorary Jets:

Each month, someone in our JET community will be recognized for all that he/she does for our building. September’s award recipients were Mr. Wade, Mr. Wrzesniewski, Mr. Willing, Mr. Clark, Mr. Gates, Mr. Lukens, Mr. Baker and Mr. Robbins from the Central Bucks Facilities Department Grounds Crew. We truly appreciate these gentlemen for all of their time and hard work that they spent getting our playground and outside area ready for the new school year. Thank you!
