Pizza lunch needs YOUR help!

pizza-31782_640

Do your kids eagerly look forward to pizza lunch days?

Do you enjoy the glorious extra time you get from not having to make a lunch?

In order to ensure that Pizza Lunches will continue this year, Gledhill School Council is looking for a new pizza lunch coordinator. We have a dedicated team of volunteers who help at the lunches, and the past coordinator is on hand to help with the transition.

Please email any questions to GSCpizza@gmail.com or come to the School Council meeting next week for more info!

SCHOOL SUPPLY DONATIONS- CURRICULUM NIGHT

Hello Gledhill families!

We have a parent at Gledhill who has spear-headed an important initiative.  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).

If you have any of these items that your family is able to donate, please consider bringing them with you tonight to Curriculum Night.  There will be a box for donations available outside of the office.  Thank you in advance for any offerings that may be received!

List of items:

Brand new school supplies such as,

Pencils
