Principal’s Message

Jackie Carducci, GJHS Principal

Parents, how many times have you asked your children if they have homework, and they look at you cluelessly and reply, “I don’t know.”


Save yourself endless frustration by becoming a Canvas Observer of your student’s account. Although Infinite Campus is a great tool to check your students progress, it does not have a feature that enables you to see assignments before they are due.





Parent Observers will be able to

  • Get email updates from each class.

  • See upcoming assignments and due dates

  • View your student's grades for the class and individual assignments

  • And much more!

Furthermore, if you become a Canvas Observer, instead of asking your child if he has homework, you can ask something like this: “Did you start your argument essay that is due by the end of the week?

PROGRESS REPORTS AND REPORT CARDS

Parents/guardians can access student progress reports and report cards through Infinite Campus Parent Portal by clicking on the Documents Tab on the Index Menu. This method allows immediate access for parents/guardians to review students’ progress and grades. As parents/guardians have immediate access to grades through Campus Parent, schools will no longer print and distribute progress reports, and the District will no longer print and mail report cards home. Parents/Guardians who require a printed report may contact their student’s school to request a copy. For more information about Infinite Campus Parent Portal, please visit https://www.ccsd.net/parents/infinite-campus.php
