Principal’s Message



Jackie Carducci GJHS Principal

GJHS PROUD!


I would like to thank all of you who attended Greenspun’s 23-24 Open House. We believe that parental involvement is important, and we were excited to see such a wonderful turnout.


We appreciate your support in your children’s educational journey. And, even if you were unable to attend, we understand because we know that our Greenspun parents show up in many ways throughout the year.


A special thanks goes to our dedicated staff and our wonderful performers last night. As I listened to our amazing performing arts students and watched our award-winning cheerleaders, it was a reminder of just how talented our students are.


Whether they are playing a sport, programming robots, hosting spirit days, or excelling in academics…their accomplishments are limitless, and I am GJHS PROUD!!!




Events & Honors:


Panorama Student Survey: Thank you for being incredible partners in educating our children. Building our social-emotional learning skills is an essential goal for our school, and we look forward to working together this school year. We will ask your child to reflect on their mindsets and approaches to learning via an online survey they will complete during science class. The survey shouldn’t take more than 20-30 minutes to complete.

The survey content will ask students to self-reflect on their positive feelings, challenging feelings, supportive relationships, and how they view themselves as learners.

We ask that all of our students participate in the surveys, as their responses will provide invaluable insights into their experiences and how we can improve and adapt our school’s response to their needs. If a student doesn’t feel they have enough information to answer a question, they can skip the item altogether. The responses to these surveys will be completely confidential. Feel free to visit https://www.panoramaed.com/panorama-student-survey.
