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.”

  1. Uschool Ukulele is today at lunch
  2. Boys Basketball is today at noon
  3. Gledhill Staff and Parents: This week is the last week to share a photo of yourself with your reusable mug. Let’s show the kids we care about the environment with this simple but important habit. Your name will be entered in a draw to win a big bag of fresh coffee from Mountainview Coffee. Send you photo by email to Mme. Leclerc soon! (Chantal.Leclerc@tdsb.on.ca) Thanks for participating.
  4. Forest of Reading meets today at 11:45. Students please eat your lunch in the lunchroom and then you will be picked up at 11:45.
  5. There will be the last ball hockey tryout tomorrow morning at 7:45am. Please check the list outside the gym office at last recess today to get permission forms and to make sure you are one of the ones who Mr. Webb still needs to have a look at.
  6. Congratulations to A in Rm 26, L in Rm 29, Z in Rm 30 and H in Rm 27 who knew that the word that describes sound going from loud to soft is either decrescendo or diminuendo. Please see Mrs Bailey for your prize. The new question is now posted in the music room and will be up for two weeks.
