What? Again? Yes, another Kama‘ehu student has gone beyond the call of duty to receive the coveted JET of the Month Award from Barber’s Point Elementary School for the month of January.
Fifth grade student Diane Samson out of HOPE Shelter found out she was named the JET of her class in the final week of January.
She then went up to receive her certificate and pin in front of the entire school on Monday, February 1st.
With her grandmother and several of the Kama‘ehu staff present, Diane got up and stood proudly on the school stage when her name was called, smiling from ear to ear.
Becoming a JET is no easy task. Classmates must compete against each other and only one is chosen from each class monthly. The criteria include a student’s performance in academics, how well a student focuses on others as well as themselves, and his/her ability to take on tasks without being told.
Congratulations Diane! You’re a JET! Your grandmother and all of us at Kama‘ehu are proud of you! Keep up the good work.
