A Special Thanks to Green Valley High School
It’s Homecoming week at Green Valley High School, and this is the perfect time to reflect on our legacy at Greenspun.
We think about our freshmen who are off to an amazing start, and our former students who are now seniors, applying to colleges and receiving their acceptance letters. No matter their age, our alumni make us proud and keep us motivated to continue achieving amazing goals.
Today our Band, Color Guard, Student Council, and Robotics team will represent us at the GVHS Homecoming Parade, carnival, and football game. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to experience a bit of high school life and community.
We would like to give a shout out and a huge thank you to Green Valley High School for including us in this special yearly event.

Reintroducing: The Dolphin Card! The Greenspun PBIS Committee is very excited to announce the return of the Dolphin Card! The Dolphin Card was an incentive tool used at Greenspun to reward students for being model citizens. Every quarter, students who receive an "O" for citizenship in every class will be given a dolphin sticker to put on the back of their ID. This sticker entitles them to privileges such as attending sporting events without a parent, playing 4 square the last 10 minutes of lunch, having their names on the announcements, and more! Students who did not qualify in the first quarter will have an opportunity to earn a sticker for the second quarter. If your child receives a sticker, please remind them that it will not be replaced if it is lost. Congratulations to everyone who had outstanding citizenship, enjoy your rewards, and keep watching the announcements to see more privileges!
Check the GJHS calendar for more events & information.
