We have a very loyal and growing group of supportive grandparents! The GJS+ is a group of grandparents and “volunteer grandparents” who meet to fulfill one goal: to improve the quality of education for all Japhet schoolchildren.
Annual dues are just $25, and the GJS+ meets monthly through February to plan their family fun night and fundraiser. Their event, Dance for Japhet, is a well attended event that features student-designed ice cream, several crafts, an auction, and a family dance. The funds raised supply financing for two merit scholarships, and they fulfull teachers’ wish lists for their classrooms!
During meetings GJS+ members visit with one another and with the Head of School, who joins in. New members are always welcome, and living near Japhet School is not required. Meeting attendance is optional.
Join the GJS by returning this flier:
