Last Council Meeting Minutes

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend last night’s final council meeting of this school year. We were pleased to welcome many families of students who will be starting at Gledhill in September!

Two teachers were present to answer Kindergarten questions and Mr Budgell,  our VP, and members of the School Engagement Committee took them on a brief tour of the school.

Mark your calendars! The first council meeting of the next school year will be Thursday, Sept 19th, 2019

Big Family Fest “Thank yous”

Last Friday we had amazing weather and a fantastic turnout to Gledhill’s Annual Family Fest. Each year the event raises valuable funds for the school council supported programs and initiatives including Drama with Jeff, Scientists in School and Skate Day.

We’d like to say a few important thank yous:

THANK YOU to all the local businesses who contributed to the day including Davidson’s valu-mart who donated all the food for the BBQ, Kevin Smith for donating the loot bag contents, the Fire Station on Woodbine for visiting with their truck and Toronto Water for sending the water truck.

THANK YOU to all the familes who attended the event and supported this important fundraiser.

THANK YOU to Andrea A and her team of parent volunteers who helped set up, man the stations and clean up afterwards.

THANK YOU to everyone who baked and cooked for the food tables.

And finally, a HUGE THANK YOU to Chantal, Marni, Scarlett and Melissa who have worked so hard to organize and run many of our fundraisers over the last few years!

“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.”
