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.”
- Only one more day until all posters and poems are due for the Remembrance Day contest. Send all entries with permission forms to Rm 30.
- Good Morning Gledhill! We are here to talk to you about the Enchanted Forest book fair where you let your imagination grow! The book fair starts TODAY, Wednesday November 14th, and runs until Wednesday, November 21st. It is open from 8:30-11:30 each day, but closed at recess. A special family event will take place on Thursday, November 15th from 3:30 until 6:00 (during parent teacher interviews). All students received a flyer with a ballot. Submit your ballot when you visit the book fair on Wednesday, Thursday or Monday for a chance to win $25 worth of book for yourself and $25 for your classroom.

- A message from the Eco Team: Hi everyone, we all know that plastic bags are causing big problems for animals in our lakes, rivers and oceans. We invite you to email Mme. Leclerc a photo of one of your family members shopping for groceries with reusable bags. We will post your photo on the Eco Club board and enter you in a draw for an Eco Friendly Prize. email@example.com
