The staff at SJHS are in it for the right reasons, and I look forward to doing great things in the coming year.”

“Dr. Mach and I are excited to have Mr. Elghadi join our team at the Junior High,” says Principal Crystal Szymanski. “We are confident he’ll help bring additional excitement, motivation, and intentionality to our school.
