GJHS sent 373 eighth graders into the community for two days this week for our first ever job shadowing program. Students worked at restaurants, pet hospitals, engineering firms, law offices, fire and police departments, schools, airports, welding shops, business offices, interior design firms, construction firms, salons, mechanic shops, medical offices, and so much more. We received such positive feedback from the business community, who will be continuing to partner with us in the future.
The next wave of girls basketball girls are at GJHS! Coach Henry is building culture and a love for the game with our future Grizzlies!
Ms. Powell and Ms. Rentschler hosted Second Annual Beyond the Book Night tonight and it was a smash hit. Kudos to our 7th graders for such great displays and hard work.
Leadership students completed a variety of community service this semester! They ran a school wide food drive, read in elementary schools, volunteered at local animal shelters, worked a charity bass tournament, and helped out at a local ranch & stables. We're proud of these students for their commitment to service & community!
