Gledhill Gives Back

One of our Gledhill parents 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). There will be a bin in the office until the last week of school in June in which to drop off your donations . If you are unable drop off items but would like to donate money please send a cheque payable to Gledhill school council. All money collected will be spent on buying items to be sent with donations collected.

List of items:

Brand new school supplies such as,

Pencils

Pens

Markers

Crayons

Coloured pencils

Pencil sharpeners

Erasers

Scissors

Folders

Notebooks

Construction paper

Sticky notepads

Silent Auction “Thank You”s

On Friday, November 23th 2018,  we held our second annual  DANCE PARTY and SILENT AUCTION fundraiser.  This event was an opportunity for our parents to get out and have a fun night while at the same time doing some important fundraising for our school!

Because of the outpouring of support from individuals, local businesses and organizations, we were able to fund raise almost $5000 for our school programs!

Thank you to everyone who attended the event and supported our school.

Thank you to the fundraising team (Chantal, Marni, Melissa, Scarlett and Alex) and other parent volunteers who helped make the night a success.

Help! – Silent Auction Items Are Still Needed

Our grown ups only evening of FUN is coming up soon on Friday, November 23th. Parents are invited to come dance up a storm to Gledhill’s own DJ Rhino and his 90’s tunes.

Auction items are still needed!

What can you donate?

  • That brand new rice cooker that is still in the box that you will never use?
  • An item or gift certificate from your favourite local business?

No item is too small. Please email thegledhillguardian@gmail.com if you have any questions or something to donate. Items can also be dropped off at the school office.

They include: Cyclepath, Deserres, Dragonz, Theatricks, Face to Face, Fresh Paint Studio, Hand and Stone, Looking Glass Adventures, Oak Park Deli, Pose Hair Salon, Metro Nails, Nail House, Rithmetic Math Club, Studio M, Tabule Restaurant, Time Capsule, The Right Side, The Marlies, Little London Barber Shop, Love Winks, East York Basketball Camp, False Ox, The Nooks and Jack of Sports.
