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.

  1. A very special thank you to Mrs Bailey and the rest f the staff and students for making our concerts a huge success! A job well done!
  2. Hi Gledhill, Next week Eco Club will accept 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!
  3. Students and staff, please check the lost and found for items you have lost.
  4. 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.
  5. 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

  1. Hanukkah, the Jewish “Festival of Lights,” also known as the “Feast of Dedication,” begins at sunset on the 25th day of the Hebrew month, Kislev. In Judaism, Hanukkah is celebrated for eight days to commemorate the victory of Judah the Maccabee for religious freedom and rededication of the Temple in 165 BCE, and to celebrate the power of God and the faithful members of Judaism. To commemorate the rededication of the temple a menorah[1], the Hanukkah lamp, was lit. The oil was only supposed to last for one day, but it miraculously kept the menorah lit for 8 days. Today, the seven candles of the menorah are lit one day at a time to signify the eight days of light that shone during the first rededication ceremony in 165 BCE. Spinning a dreidel (a spinning top) is traditionally associated with the festival.
  2. A huge Gledhill welcome to all the schools visiting for the grade 5 girls basketball tournament.
