Gledhill Supports Centre 55 for the holidays

Each year Gledhill families show kindness and caring to those in need by donating new unwrapped toys and mittens to Centre 55. Over the next two weeks please help by bringing toys to the sled by the main office and by helping to decorate our tree in the main hall with mittens.

We are also collecting non-perishable food items for Centre 55 on the day of our holiday concert- Thursday December 12th.

Thank you for showing kindness and caring in our community!

Gledhill Jr PS will be hosting our annual Scholastic Book Fair from November 14th until November 21st.

The Book Fair will be open to students, staff and parents during the day.

We will host a family event on Thursday, November 14th after school from 330 to 6pm.

The profits made from our book fairs are used to develop our library collection, purchase classroom resources, and support our makerspace culture. Every year, our book fair is a huge success due to the support from our wonderful parent and teacher community.

If you are able to volunteer during our book fair this year, please take a few minutes to sign up for a shift or two, every little bit helps.

Here is a link to the schedule –

Thank you so much and happy reading!
