Highlights from this morning’s announcements:

“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. Beginning this Wednesday, any grade 3-5 students interested in being a part of DISNEY SPRING CONCERT decoration committee are invited to come with their lunch and start making decorations! Please sign up with Mrs Bailey before Wednesday. First 20 students only.
  2. Uschool Ukulele today at lunch.
  3. Eco-Club – Last week the used batteries were picked up and Gledhill recycled 160 kg of used batteries. AMAZING! Thanks for keeping those chemicals out of our water and soil.
  4. Ramadam (Islam)Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, is referred to in the Qu’ran (Koran) as a blessed month in which the teachings of the Qu’ran were revealed to the prophet Muhammad. During Ramadan, most Muslims fast during the hours of daylight and also increase their focus on prayer and contemplation. At the end of each day, the fast is traditionally broken with a prayer and a light meal called the iftar.

    Ramadan is considered a time for Muslims to recommit themselves to practicing compassion and generosity for others, as well as a time to cultivate spiritual renewal both within themselves and their communities.
