Mascot: The Jaguar

  • In 2010, our students chose the jaguar as the school mascot. We believe the jaguar embodies the qualities of curiosity, confidence, commitment and independence.

    Jefferson-Houston PreK-8, a fully authorized IB World School awards a stamp on a special tracking card to promote student courtesy and etiquette. Teachers encourage students to:

    • Be Respectful
    • Be Responsible
    • Be Safe
    • Be Your Best

    The teacher distributes stamps to a student's special tracking cards when the student demonstrates one of these values. When giving the stamp, the teacher explains to the student what the teacher noticed, and why the teacher appreciated the behavior. All staff members have a special golden Jaguar paw that can be given to an entire class when they demonstrate one of the PBIS values.
