"Gio has been an excellent addition to Jefferson Junior High School this year. He shows up to school ready to learn and engages his teachers in thought provoking questions. His dry humor and steady stream of dad jokes are always appreciated by both his peers and the staff. We believe his deep thinking will take him interesting places in life, and we are excited to watch it." - Zachary Guillaume, Counselor
