Dear JGW Community
This past Wednesday we had our annual Thanksgiving Feast. This event was planned by a committee of staff and implemented by a group of educators wanting to help bring our community together. I want to give a special shout out to Ms. Shirey and Ms. Hamel for leading the staff in pulling this night off. We had over 400 community members in the building and we saw generations of Poets smiling and having a great time.
