Principal's Message:


Jackie Carducci GJHS Principal

Greenspun Junior High School has a multitude of courteous, kind, successful, and outstanding students who walk through our doors on the daily. There are not enough adjectives to describe the dedication and work ethic they demonstrate in academics, the arts, sports, and other extracurricular activities.


Their work is not over when the dismissal bell rings as evidenced by the many awards our students have earned in various competitions throughout the year. From superior ratings for the band, choir, and orchestra; national titles for our cheerleaders and color guard; a showcase title for our yearbook, an undefeated season for our boy’s soccer team, to a world championship title for our robotic kids…these are just a few of the many examples of Greenspun Greatness and our amazing students!


Students, thank you for your dedication and strong work ethic as you spend endless hours preparing for excellent performances and hard-fought prestigious titles at endless competitions.


Parents, thank you for your support and the countless hours you spend making sure your children are prepared with the behind the scene necessities.


Teachers and coaches, thank you for making it all happen. Without you and your assistants, our programs would not be top-notch. A very special thank you goes out to each of you: David Martinez, Band, assisted by Jordan Miller; Heather Scobie, Choir, assisted by Kelly Ray; Sheila Davis, Orchestra, assisted by Michael Spicer; Amy Reusch, Art; Sadie Floyd and Brittany Whitlow, Color Guard; John Cress, boy’s soccer; Niki Hood and Page Zuniga, cheer; and Casey Juliano, robotics and yearbook publications.


I have said this countless times. “These kids, our staff, and our community are second to none!” I am honored and blessed to be the proud principal of Greenspun Junior High School!
