The students, staff and families of Jesus the Good Shepherd School borrowed a page from Clark W. Griswold to take a day-long vacation and travel the continent, from New York to Nevada for the 2014 May Day celebration. Parents and students from Pre-K3 to 6th Grade enjoyed a day of fun and festivities, with each class assigned a destination that they represented in song, dance and costume.

Disney’s “Frozen” and Las Vegas made appearances at destinations that included New York, California, Texas and even an Elvis appearance. Organized by a massive parent’s committee, JGS Takes A Vacation was chaired by Beth Swanner.

Also, the JGS P.T.O. was on hand with prizes, including a Trip Raffle featuring an $8,000 vacation package that ultimately went to Ainslee Peters. The festivities concluded as the sixth grade class wrapped a traditional May Pole to bring to a close their transition from elementary to junior high school.
