GJDC Year of Giving
New Year GJDC, Inc Students of the Month
We are so excited to announce our New Year/ January 2023 GJDC, Inc Students of the Month! Our teachers and staff put their heads together and came up with a great group of kids who have shown great work ethic, great attendance and always on time and prepared, kindness to their peers, and who were polite and respectful to their teachers. A few may have stepped out of their box or did an act of kindness when no one was watching (but they were caught!)..... We are so proud of them and hope that, in this crazy time, your kindness, love and positivity will spread, and stick around, like your favorite Glitter !!
** Stop by the office this week to grab a little something special from us and look out for our special recognitions on our FB and IG !
CONGRATULATIONS and lots of Love!! <3
It's the Month of LOVE !

Huge shout out to Welton Motor Freight's Mike Welton for donating the use of his flatbed tractor trailer and for pulling our decorated float in the parade. Mike has been pulling our float for many, many years and we look forward to seeing him and his family every year. Another big thanks to our very own Charles Williams (Celeste) for the work on the car trailer and for pulling the second decorated float and our GJDC families in the parade. We appreciate you both so much!
