We hope all of our in person and virtual families have had a great start to the 2021-2022 school year!
We wanted to bring to your attention some important days that are coming up at Gledhill:
September 30th, 2021- Orange Shirt Day
Gledhill will be recognizing Orange Shirt Day with lessons and activities where students will learn about the legacy of the Residential Schools System for First Nations, Métis and Inuit families and communities.
On September 30th we are asking everyone to wear an Orange shirt as Gledhill acknowledges the truths of Residential Schools in Canada, we honour Survivors, and we remember the thousands of children murdered by these schools, many of them buried in unmarked graves. For more information about Orange Shirt Day, please visit https://www.orangeshirtday.org/about-us.html
October 1, 2021 – Terry Fox Run
Gledhill will hold its annual walk/fundraiser for the Terry Fox Foundation on Friday, October 1st! Teachers will conduct an outdoor walk with their class and their cohort.
(In the interest of safety for all, we will not be sending pledge sheets home and no cash donations will be accepted at the school.) For more information on Terry Fox and his legacy, please visit https://terryfox.org/
What a year it has been! We hope that all of our families have a safe, fun and relaxing summer!
Before we sign off for the summer break, we wanted to provide a very exciting update on our year-end fundraising initiative! We raised $11, 245 and we couldn’t have done it without the amazing families and community that make Gledhill such special place! Thank you to everyone who was able to contribute and share the information!
A big thank you to all of our Gledhill staff- teachers, admin and support staff who kept the year going despite the many challenges!
We wish all of our Grade 5 graduates all the best as they head off to new school(s) next year and we look forward to welcoming our new JKs in September.
Do know a family joining Gledhill in the fall? Let them know about to sign up for this blog and to join our Gledhill Facebook page to stay up to date on back to school information for September 2021.
Stay well and stay safe Gledhill Tigers! See you in September!

We want to wish Gledhill’s Grade 5 students all the best as they move onto new schools next year! Students were invited to Gledhill at the beginning of this week to say goodbye to some of their teachers and have opportunities to share memories of their time at Gledhill! A big thanks to teachers, admin, and parents of the students for giving our Grade 5’s a special send off!

Please think of thanking staff generally, as opposed to your specific teachers. Use this opportunity to give a shout out to all our teachers, caretakers. office staff, Educational Assistants, Special Needs Assistants, Child & Youth Workers, Early Childhood Educators, Lunchroom Supervisors. and of course our Principal and Vice Principal.
Feel free to get creative! You can attach messages, photos, GIFs or videos – your own or from the online browser.Want to sign the board? Please do so by 5pm on Monday, June 28th. We will share it with the staff team on Tuesday the 29th.
