At Jackson, we are creating a unique identity for our unique school.  We are J.L Jackson with a long history in the community of Salmon Arm.  Originally our teams were known as the Jackson Jets and Jacks and then inherited the Golds and Jewels when Jackson and Sullivan were amalgamated.  The Ministry of Education recognizes Jackson as independent from Sullivan and its once again time to have a name of our own.

Staff and Students are invited to submit team name suggestions:

  • In writing to the office;
  • Emailed to jlj@sd83.bc.ca; or
  • Survey completed on our website

Submissions must include a team name (one name for all teams) and why you feel this name represents Jackson.

  • A team name should be inclusive and characterize our values, teams style of play, symbolize our community characteristics, or represent another source of pride.
  • A graphic designer will suggest logos once a few names are short-listed

Timeline

  • Call for submissions from students/staff – February 21
  • Submission Deadline – March 18
  • Short-list presented to school community for feedback – April 18
