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.”

  1. Hi everyone!  Did you know that today is World Water Day?  Water is essential to every living thing’s ability to survive and be healthy.  Many people and animals around the world do not have access to clean, healthy water.  Did you also know that the water we have on our planet today is the same water from billions of years ago?  We cannot make new water.  We can only recycle it.  Let’s think about how our actions can protect this super-important resource today.
  2. Today is a good day for classrooms to send their paper recycling to the bins in the basement.
  3. If you have been chosen to join the Eco-Club, please take your permission form to Mme. Leclerc or Ms. Roshi.  We will meet next Thursday Eco-Tigers.
  4. This is an announcement for all the Young Women on the Move. Please meet in Room 30 at 1130.  Bring your lunch.

X Movement is back at Gledhill this week with “X Fusion”

The school administration is pleased to have X Movement back at Gledhill this week. Over the past two years, students have participated in their Aussie X and X Dance programs. This week it’s X Fusion!

Each class at Gledhill, JK through Grade 5, will have three sessions of X Fusion this week.

“X Fusion explores self-regulation through a mix of high-intensity fitness and mindful movement. Students are guided to identify their feelings and emotions, choose their desired state, and use physical action to achieve it. By the end, they’ll be equipped with the steps to self-regulate: Feel, Choose, Fuse.”

  1. The Crayon Box That Talked(Read by students)
  2. Teachers, please have students empty your paper recycling bins in the basement sometime today.  Please remind students to make sure there is room in the bin before they dump it.
  3. Today is International Women’s and United Nations Day for Women’s Rights and International Peace(United Nations)- “The celebration of March 8th as International Women’s Day(IWD) recognizes the struggles of women against all forms of discrimination and exploitation and focuses on the need for global equality, democracy and peace.  On International Women’s Day, women on all continents, often divided by national boundaries and by ethnic, linguistic, economic, and political differences join in the commemoration of this significant event.  On March 8th 1908, women needle trade-workers in New York reacting against their brutal exploitation held a women’s day demonstration.  These women fought for the right to unionize and demanded the right to vote.  The success of the rally led to similar rallies in other US cities and in other countries. Why is international women’s day important to recognize in Canada? In 2005 women earned just 70.5% as men, and 70% of minimum wage earners are women.  More than half are immigrant racial women.  Two million adult Canadian workers earn less than 10 dollars an hour of which two thirds are women (according to Statistics Canada 2007).
