Back to School Shopping

Hello Gledhill families!

As we start to shop for back to school supplies, please keep in mind an important initiative one of our Gledhill parents is undertaking.  This parent does charity work when she visits the Caribbean Island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines by giving back to less fortunate children. Her family and close friends donate items that she ships over and then hands out to local school children who are in desperate need of every day items. This year she’s trying to reach more children and is looking for donations of school supplies and non- perishable food (see list below).

Please consider buying some extra supplies when shopping for your own Gledhill student to donate to this worthy cause.  There will be a bin in the office to drop off your donations once school begins. 

List of items:
