Tonight’s Dinner and Entertainment CHECK! – Movie Night at Gledhill

Daily Announcements: Thursday, December 13th

Note to parents:  Shane, our parent volunteer, who this year has graciously taken over Movie Night organization, needs our help. He has a small group of parents who help him regularly, but needs to expand this pool a bit. Helpers are needed each movie night to set up chairs and mats (5:30 – 6:00), sell tickets, pizza and popcorn (6:00-7:30ish) and clean up (about 8:30 depending on when the movie ends). Please email Shane via thegledhillguardian@gmail.com if you can help. Upcoming movie nights are tomorrow, Dec 14th, Feb 22nd and April 26th.

What’s coming up?

  • Friday, December 14th – Family Movie Night -“Arthur Christmas”
  • Friday, December 21st – Spirit Day – PJ Day and last day before the holidays

Highlights from this morning’s announcements:

Read first: “I would like to acknowledge that this school is situated upon traditional territories. The territories include the Wendat, Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Mississaugas of Scugog, Hiawatha, Alderville First Nation and the Métis Nation. The treaty that was signed for this particular parcel of land is collectively referred to as the Williams Treaties of 1923 and applies to lands east of Woodbine Avenue. I also recognize the enduring presence of Aboriginal peoples on this land.”

Calling all hockey and figure skating parents – Skate Day needs you!

Do you have a passion for the ice and want to see the tradition of Gledhill Skate Day continue each year? This is the last year our current Skate Day organizer will be at Gledhill so she needs to pass the torch.

One or two parents are needed to shadow her this year so that they are ready to go next year.

What is Skate Day?

Skate Day is a day in March when all Gledhill students, grades 1 through 5, who wish to participate, walk with their classes to an arena to skate for a half day. The school council Skate Day organizers book and pay for the arena and coordinate transportation and fitting of loaner skates and helmets for kids who don’t have their own. The teachers look after distributing permission forms and getting 2-3 parent volunteers to walk with their class to and from the arena and to help tie their class’s skates.

It’s a fantastic day filled with so many smiles from kids excited to skate with their friends and many who are skating for the first time!

If you have questions about what is involved with Skate Day organization or are interested in shadowing our organizer this year, please email thegledhillguardian@gmail.com
