The Student Council raised awareness for childhood cancer earlier this semester by participating in a Miracle Minute fundraiser for The Cure for the Kids Foundation Cancer Treatment Center in Las Vegas. Teachers passed around a donation bag for one minute during students’ first period. The Greenspun students raised over $2,700 to help provide care for children and their families dealing to assist with cancer treatments.. This was the largest donation Greenspun's Student Council has ever raised for a charity. Way to go Dolphins!

Important Announcements


We Need Your Help

School safety is our number one priority at Greenspun Junior High School. As a Greenspun community we are asking for your support in the following areas:

  • Please monitor your children’s cell phones and remind them that they are not allowed to use them during passing periods or in their classes. Inappropriate cell phone usage has been the cause of the majority of fights on campus. We are also asking that you do not text your child during class time.

  • Any student wishing to attend an after school soccer game must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Otherwise, campus monitors will escort them off school premises.

  • Please remind your child to be respectful of their surroundings before and after school. We have reports of students throwing rocks at cars, running across the street, showing disrespect at our neighboring church, and using inappropriate language. It is important to respect our neighbors and the community around us.

  • Misbehaviors are on the rise across the district. CCSD and GJHS take these incidents very seriously. Students who choose to participate in such incidents such as fights, verbal altercations, destructive behavior and school disruptions may receive a 3-5 day suspension, StarOn, or expulsion.


Important Update on School Identification Badges and Lanyards - No More Loaner Lanyards


Your child’s safety is important to us. That is why it is imperative for us to be able to identify each student on our campus at all times, and why we require them to wear lanyards with their school identification cards attached.


Please remind your children that they must come to school wearing their identification badges and lanyards. Beginning Monday, April 4, 2022, we will no longer give students loaner lanyards.


Students who come to school without their ID and lanyard will be placed in In-House for the day. They will not be permitted to attend classes without their IDs and lanyards. If they lose their IDs or lanyards, they can purchase new ones for $1.00 each in the Student Success Center before or after school or during their lunch period.

We appreciate all of your continued support in a combined effort to keep all students, faculty, and families safe on and off our campus.


If you have an emergency, please call our office at (702) 799-0920; ext. 4035.
