Let's work on getting to school on time and enjoying our last few weeks of learning with our school friends.


Have a wonderful weekend!

District Survey


Did you fill out the annual GPS Family Survey yet? We encourage participation from all families because we value your confidential feedback. The survey should take approximately five minutes to complete, and you can skip questions if you don’t have enough information to answer them. You should have received an email on Wednesday with the subject line “Greenwich Public Schools Family Survey” from Superintendent Dr. Toni Jones. The deadline is Friday, June 17.


Parents/guardians received one survey link with separate surveys for each of their children in the district. If a parent has questions or problems, they should send an email to: research@greenwich.k12.ct.us.


Below is a link to last week's S'more with an explanation of what JC teachers and staff have done to continue to build on our parent/school connection.
