Back to School Shopping

Hello Gledhill families!

As we start to shop for back to school supplies, please keep in mind an important initiative one of our Gledhill parents is undertaking.  This parent does charity work when she visits the Caribbean Island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines by giving back to less fortunate children. Her family and close friends donate items that she ships over and then hands out to local school children who are in desperate need of every day items. This year she’s trying to reach more children and is looking for donations of school supplies and non- perishable food (see list below).

Please consider buying some extra supplies when shopping for your own Gledhill student to donate to this worthy cause.  There will be a bin in the office to drop off your donations once school begins. 

List of items:

Brand new school supplies such as,

Pencils

Pens

Markers

Crayons

Coloured pencils

Pencil sharpeners

Erasers

Scissors

Folders

Notebooks

Construction paper

Rulers

Sticky notepads

Pencil cases

Highlighters

Lined paper

Blank paper

Calculators

Whiteout

Protractors

Backpacks

Non-perishable food items

Toothpaste

Toothbrushes

Deodorant

Sanitary napkins

 

Please help us reach as many children as we can. If you have any questions please feel free to email  gledhillguardian@gmail.com.

Getting Ready for Back to School

Now that the long weekend is behind us it’s time to start thinking about getting our kids ready to return to school (Tuesday September 3rd).

As you start preparing for lunches, indoor shoes and other miscellaneous items that could be misplaced it’s a good time to think about ordering labels for your lunch containers, water bottles, hoodies, jackets, backpacks, shoes and anything else that you can add a label to.

Did you know that you can support the school council by ordering your labels through Oliver’s Labels?  It’s a win-win situation, you get to keep track of your child’s stuff (hopefully reducing lost items) and a portion of the purchase will support the school council.  If you’re interested take a look at the link below:
