Mr. Wellbrock serves as a School Angel at John Griffin Middle SchoolA crucial key to the success of JGMS is our awesome parent involvement. We would like to spotlight the unselfish and giving efforts of Mr. William Wellbrock. Mr. Wellbrock serves as a “School Angel”, tirelessly patrolling our campus to maintain the safety of our students. Additionally, he has organized our “Operation Toy Drop” initiative which seeks to collect toys for disenfranchised children throughout the state. He boosts student and staff morale by showcasing his school spirit! Sometimes he even dresses up as some of our favorite fictional characters. As a member of the School Improvement Team, Mr. Wellbrock contributes to our efforts of building a bridge between our school and surrounding community by serving as a voice for parents. We appreciate you Mr. Wellbrock!
