  • Friday, December 21st – Spirit Day – PJ Day and last day before the holidays

Highlights from this morning’s announcements:

Read first: “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. Hi Gledhill, Eco Club is accepting ideas for “How to green your holidays!” Drop off your ideas to the shiny green and blue suggestion box in the office. If your idea is read over the announcements, you will receive a nice cup of hot chocolate in your classroom. Drop off your idea soon and make sure to add your name and room number. Thanks!
  2. Thank you Gledhill! The toys and mittens in the front hall look great! Please keep the toys  and mittens coming until December 19th. Many thanks from Centre 55.
  3. This year we have decided to collect gently used sports equipment that can be put to use by someone else. Balls, gloves, skates etc that are still in good condition or that you maybe have never used and are around your house can be brought in and placed in the bin outside the gym office. The GAC (Gledhill Athletics Club) are deciding how best to use the items. Thank you. – Mr Webb

Scholastic Book Fair – Our Librarian Needs Your Help!

Ms Kopka, our amazing librarian, is holding her annual Scholastic Book Fair in the library Nov 14 through Nov 21. Proceeds help her buy new books and resources for the library. Parents are needed in short shifts to staff the check out table and help kids with their purchases. 2-3 parents per shift helps things run smoothly.

Besides books, in past years, Ms Kopka has used these funds to buy cool resources for the library like sets of “Dash and Dot” for students to use in the library.
