Christmas Program christmas play

Monday, December 11, is our Christmas program date. Our Third Grade’s program is at 6:30, our Fourth Grade at 7:15 and Fifth Grade is at 8:00. In order to make for a smoother evening this year, we are asking that you consider a few things:

1)Please consider carpooling.

2)If you are of healthy body, please park a block or two from school to enable the less fortunate easier access.

3)Please leave small children at home this evening. We ask that you opt for them to attend our dress rehearsal in the afternoon.

4)Please don’t stay for all performances unless you have children in all performances.

We hope that these suggestions can serve all in having a happier evening. Thank you for considering these options.

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.
