  • A message from the Eco Club: It’s another cold day outside, but it’s also beautiful! Did you know you will be much warmer if your boots and clothing are nice and dry? At the end of each day, make sure to hang up damp mittens and put your boots where they can dry. Then you’ll be  ready for more fun outside the next day!

The Breakfast Club – Gledhill Makes Mornings Easier

The Breakfast Club is open to ALL students in grades 1 to 5.

Did you know that Gledhill students are able to have breakfast at school everyday? We are the Breakfast Club – a before-school program that serves breakfast daily in the Lunchroom from 8:00am to 8:40am. Any student in grades 1-5 may attend. It is not based on any kind of need. It’s for everyone. That means you can drop your kids off at school earlier, and know they will have a nutritious breakfast to fuel their day. Plus, your kids can attend as often as you like – whether it’s daily or even just once a month. It’s a great solution for those early morning work meetings that pop up.

The program is run by a team of dedicated Parent and Community Volunteers, who are passionate about healthy eating – and the importance of a good breakfast to start the day. We always offer smoothies, whole grain cereals, fruit platters and a daily feature item like scrambled eggs and toast, quesadillas or granola fruit parfaits. Students can catch up with friends or play quiet activities until the morning bell rings.

IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO SIGN UP To register, just email Gledhill.breakfastclub@gmail.com or pick up a registration form in the School Office. We do ask for a small donation to our program. Donations and registration forms can be dropped off in the Breakfast Club Mailbox in the School Office.

WE STILL NEED VOLUNTEERS

We still need volunteers to join our team, especially for the Clean-up shift from 8:40am – 9:15am. Even just once a month is a big help. Please email Catherine at Gledhill.breakfastclub@gmail.com for more info.

  • Eco Club has a message: What is plastic made of? Where does it come from? We learned that plastic can either be found in nature or is man made. Man made plastic is called synthetic plastic. Most plastic used today is man made. It’s made out of crude oil which is a complex mixture of 1000s of compounds. Other materials used in the production of plastics are coal, natural gas,  salt and even corn oil.
  • Next week is Gledhill’s Skate (and Helmet) Drive. Do you have any skates or helmets that your family members have out grown? Bins will be located in front of the main and gyms offices. All sizes of children and youth skates and helmets are needed
