As many of you are aware, one of Gledhill’s grade 5 students, Hailey, is undergoing treatment for leukemia. Her care is placing a large financial burden on her family. There is a gofundme page set up to raise funds for Hailey’s family . It can be found HERE.
Gledhill’s staff, students and council have planned several upcoming events and opportunities for those who are able to contribute to Hailey’s family.
Movie Night Bake Sale: Our next movie night is Friday, February 2 – The movie is “SING”. There will be a bake sale at the gym entrance for those attending movie night and those who would just like to pop by and get some goodies. All proceeds from the bake sale will go to Hailey’s family. If you’d like to contribute baking to the table, please drop items off between 5:30-6:00pm to the gym that night or to the office that day.
Hearts for Hailey: Red heart valentines will be sold for $.50 each or 3 for $1. Students can purchase them at morning recess the week before Valentines day (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) outside of the music room. They will also be sold the Monday morning recess the week of Valentine’s Day (12th) and will need to be returned to the school mailbox located outside the office, by the Tuesday morning (February 13th) so they can be sorted and delivered to classes on Valentine’s Day! Pink hearts will be available, free of charge, to send Hailey a special message! Those will also be delivered to Hailey on Valentine’s Day!
Light up the Night for Hailey: Parent Teacher Interview Night is Thursday, February 15. At 6:15pm that night, families are invited to gather in the gym and begin a walk around the school grounds to “light up the night”. Glow necklaces will be sold on February 12, 13th, 14th from 3:30 to 3:45 p.m. and February 15th at 6 PM in the gymnasium. Bundle up and show our Gledhill family member how much we care!
Any additional donations can be made in the jar located in the school office.
