Principal's Message

Jackie Carducci GJHS Principal

As we end the school year, I would like to pay tribute to our eighth grade students. Life as a junior high student is not always easy, but our kids have managed to make it through three years of academics, extracurricular activities, lack of sleep, and lots of middle school drama.

What is the most exciting is that each of them have their own success story. It isn’t always about who has the highest grades or who has accomplished the most. It’s about how these kids have embraced their struggles, learned from their mistakes, and demonstrated growth as individuals. It’s about how each of them uniquely added to their success story during their middle school experience.

As our eighth graders move on to high school, it is important to remind them to be proud of who they are, to celebrate their wins in life, and to continue to pursue their dreams, despite the challenges. I am blessed to have been a part of their journey, and I can’t wait to see the many successes they will add to their stories.
