Principal’s Message


Jackie Carducci GJHS Principal

As I witness the dedication of our staff endlessly preparing lesson plans, our students working diligently to complete their assignments, and our committed parents taking an active role in their children’s education, my principal’s message to all of you is a simple one.


Please take the opportunity to spend time with family, enjoy your favorite activities, and most importantly, to rest both physically and mentally during Spring Break.


Literally speaking, one of the definitions of break is “to take a pause from work.” Need I say more?


STAY SAFE AND ENJOY YOUR MUCH-NEEDED SPRING BREAK!
