What’s Coming up at Gledhill?

Hello Gledhill families!  

Here’s your weekly update of “what’s coming up at Gledhill”!  

The TDSB has advised that afterschool/evening activities such as Movie Nights be cancelled until job action has been resolved.  As a result, the Movie Night scheduled for this Friday February 28th will be cancelled.

We have been advised that pizza lunches can still go ahead for now, so our pizza lunch schedule for this Friday February 28th is still on, unless a strike day is scheduled.

We will keep you posted with any other updates that affect school activities as we are made aware of them, as these guidelines may change at any time.  Thank you for understanding!

The character trait for February is “Fairness”.  Every morning the students hear a quote related to Fairness with the morning announcements.  

February is African History month, as well as Chinese Heritage month within the TDSB.  Gledhill will be recognizing African History and Chinese Heritage through the daily announcements, as well as activities within the classrooms.

Black History Month- Artist Feature

Hello Gledhill families!

During the month of February, the TDSB celebrates Black History month.

In the front hallway of the school across from Room 3, we have a wonderful exhibit of art that has been loaned to Gledhill for the month by one of our families to celebrate and recognize the work of Black artists.  The talented artist, Owen Ralph, is one of our students grandfathers.  Please bring your students by to have a look at these wonderful pieces, you won’t be disappointed!
