What is the Dragon Award at Jefferson Elementary? The Dragon Award is recognition of two students per classroom, one boy and one girl, who have demonstrated the PBIS term of the month most often. Throughout the month, students can receive a sticker as a reward for demonstrating the term of the month, and at the end of each month, the two students to receive the Dragon Award Certificate are chosen. Those students are recognized on the announcements. The Dragon Award is just one of the ways we support our JES students who demonstrate their Dragon pride in the way the conduct themselves at school!
