What are the Phoenix Awards?

The JPTA Phoenix Awards are given quarterly to outstanding students and adults in our school community who go above and beyond to make our school a wonderful place to learn. 
 
Awards are given in the following categories:
 
- Elementary Student
- Middle School Student
- Teacher
- Staff Member
- Volunteer
 
Phoenix Award recipients will receive a personalized award and a gift certificate.  Recognition will be provided on social media, on the Phoenix Awards board in the media center/library, and in person at a public school event, meeting, or in class, depending on the recipient.
 
Nomination Process
 
Please help the JPTA staff, PAC, and Governance Council by nominating JPTA community members for the quarterly Phoenix Awards.
