Principal's Message

Jackie Carducci GJHS Principal

When I think of spring, images of budding tree leaves, blooming flowers, and cool sunshiny days come to mind. Oh wait…there is one more thing that I am thinking, and it is dancing merrily in the forefront of my mind. I know you know what it is because I am sure that you are thinking it too! 

Yes! It is our long-awaited, well-deserved spring break! 

Just like Mother Nature uses the spring season for renewal and rejuvenation, I encourage you to use Spring Break to rest, relax, and recuperate from whatever it is that has made you weary. It is a great  time to take a break from school obligations and spend quality time with family and friends.

Whatever your plans for the upcoming week, I wish you a wonderful and safe Spring Break, and, I am looking forward to seeing all of you in a week – renewed, rejuvenated, and ready to finish strong as we enter the home stretch of the school year.
