Public Works Session

The GJCS Board of Trustees met in a public work session to discuss findings of a recent facilities feasibility study conducted by The Stenftenagel Group and Gibraltar Design, Inc.  The key take-aways of the study are as follows:

1.  There are significant facility needs to be addressed at all schools but most pressing at  Fifth and Tenth Street Elementary Schools.
2.  We are financially in a position to take care of those needs without levying more tax dollars in debt service than we already currently levy.  This means at no additional burden to our taxpayers.
3.  The window of opportunity to address these issues is now.

Please see the the attached PowerPoint presentation from the meeting.

Rachel's Challenge

All GJCS students in grades K - 5 will be participating in the Rachel's Challenge presentation on Wednesday, August 31, 2016.  Rachel's Challenge is based upon the life and writings of Rachel Joy Scott, who was the first victim of the Columbine school shootings in 1999.  Through her example, Rachel's Challenge strives to positively impact the lives of millions with acts of respect, kindness, and compassion.

Rachel's inspiring story provides a simple, yet powerful example of how small acts of kindness and acceptance motivate us to consider our relationships with the people we come in contact with every day.  Rachel's story gives us permission to start our own chain reaction of kindness and compass ions, which positively affects the climate in our schools and communities.  

A special Community Event will be held for interested parents and community members on Wednesday, August 31, 2016 beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the JHS auditorium.  All are invited to attend this special event.
