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.”
- Today is the start of the Paralympic Games. The Gledhill phys ed department has been honouring these games, playing modified events such as sledge hockey. Today we will show Team Canada entering the Olympic venue. Teachers: if both Mr. Webb and Mrs. Pace aren’t in the gym, we are in the small lunchroom.
- A reminder to the Grade 4/5 ball hockey team of their pizza party today with Mr. Webb. Please come down to the gym at 11:30. We will be going outside after, so please bring jacket and boots.
