Parent Shadow Day

parent dayParent Shadow Day will be on Friday, October 11th from 7:30-10:30 am. This will be an excellent opportunity for you to see your child in the actual classroom environment.  From the first bell through the first half of the day, you will be part of changing classes, going to lockers, experiencing lessons, and seeing your child participate in his/her education.  Upon entering the school you will be asked to sign in. Because this is a regular day of instruction, we ask that no siblings be brought to this event.  Also, due to lack of space for all our visitors, we ask that parents NOT plan to stay and have lunch on this day. However, we invite you to return at a future date to enjoy lunch with your child.  Please be aware that this is not a conference time to meet with teachers.  If you need a conference please schedule this at a different time. Please fill in the attached form and return it to your child’s homeroom teacher by Wednesday, October 9, 2013 so we may prepare for all of our guests. We look forward to seeing you then!

National Civic Oration Winner from JGMS!

Samantha S.

Samantha Sullivan, a member of last year’s Swashbucklers Team at John Griffin Middle School, won the 2011-12 National School Speech/Civic Oration Contest.  A current freshman at Jack Britt High School, Ms. Sullivan’s speech titled, “A Time When Volunteers Made a Difference” described the boat lift necessitated by the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in 2001.

Samantha’s speech was chosen first over more than 100,000 original entries from throughout the nation.  After advancing past school, district and state honors, Samantha submitted a video of her speech and waited through the summer for the official notification, proclaiming her speech as the nation’s best.

Samantha and her family were honored at a recent luncheon hosted by the Modern Woodmen of America and Cumberland County Schools.  Along with a financial award, Samantha was presented with a plaque to commemorate this recognition.  A duplicate plaque was awarded to John Griffin Middle School.  It is permanently displayed at the school’s main entrance. Congratulations on a job well done! Your JGMS family is very proud of you!
