Principal’s Message

Jackie Carducci GJHS Principal

I like to compare the last few weeks of school to a baseball game. Baseball players, just like our students, have struck out here and there, accumulated base hits, and even some home runs throughout the year as they diligently completed assignments, took assessments, and participated in their many extracurricular activities.

But now, just like in baseball, it’s time to make it through the home stretch. While many of us are battling the end of year overload, whether we are students, staff, or parents, it is easy to get discouraged by those overwhelming “to do” lists that cause us nothing but anxiety, and sometimes, the desire to give up.

That is why it is more important than ever to focus on the home stretch and go for that final home run. Taking a time out to create a winning game plan for the rest of the school year is a great place to begin.

Add the support of our teammates, a positive pep talk, confidence, and determination, so when we walk up to the plate and swing that bat, we can say to ourselves, “Self, you finished strong!” as we watch that ball soar out of the park for that final home run!
