JGS Students Are Super(heroes)!
On Thursday, Oct. 12th, AJ Lady Wildcat Volleyball hosted Paws for a Cause All-Cancer Awareness Night. The volleyball team sponsored a local girl, 3 year old Blakeleigh Grace, who is currently fighting her own battle against cancer. JGS students Marlee Smith, Lily Baker, and Kaya Coleman caught word that little Blakeleigh loves superheroes! So, the girls attended the celebration in costume and surprised Blakeleigh with bags of goodies and a photo opp. Blakeleigh was the sweetest, most thankful little girl . . . in our eyes, she's the real superhero!

about 1 month ago
Anyone attending or visiting JGS during the week of October 16th - 20th probably saw some strange things . . .students and staff wearing their pajamas to school; superheroes in the building; hippies; hats; and of course, a sea of pink on Friday. No, you weren't hallucinating. The themed dress days were all part of a fundraising effort to benefit the American Cancer Society and promote awareness of ALL forms of cancer. Students and staff were asked to donate $1 for each day of participation in the theme days. Everyone had a great time dressing up and helping out this worthy cause. WAY TO GO BULLDOGS!
