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.”

- A message from Mr. Webb:
It was a cold and wet fall day when Gledhill arrived at the rugby pitch with 40 athletes, all ready to give it their all. The grade 5 teams competed hard and one of our teams ended up in the finals! What a day.
The grade 6 teams fought to the end and played against each other the very last game, coming within 2 points of one another. That made one of the grade 6 teams make the finals, but they lost on the last play of the game to Williamson. So proud of all our rugby superstars for their hard work and excellent display of sportsmanship!
- The winners of the door decorating contest are as follows: first floor—room 5, second floor—room 19, third floor—room 27.
