McCordic Fun Fair

Today the Grade 4 and 5 students from Rm 25 were invited to attend the McCordic School Fun Fair. They were given a warm welcome by the staff and students and were served up a BBQ by a team of local police officers.

For the past 7 years, one of our teachers, Mme Bey, has been walking her classes to McCordic once a week during the spring. The Gledhill students work in partnership with the McCordic students, dancing and spending time together. Their culminating event is Special Needs FolkFest at Ted Reeve Arena.

McCordic School is a Special Education School in the Toronto District School Board for students with developmental disabilities. The school is located just behind Main Station on Balfour Ave. The school serves approximately 85 students with developmental disabilities who live in the east end of Toronto. The students range from four to twenty-one years of age. Many of the students also have physical disabilities (require wheelchairs) in addition to their cognitive impairments. Over the years, a partnership has developed between the two schools and the Gledhill  School Council has been pleased to share a portion of our funds raised with McCordic each year. This year we were able to present them with a donation of $1500.

Today,  Rm 25 was also presented with a very special painting – a collaboration created by the McCordic students and teachers.

 

 

End of Year Lost and Found Reminder – TOMORROW is the deadline to claim items

If you are at the school for tomorrow night’s Spring Concert, please check out our over flowing Lost & Found in the school basement. There are many pieces of clothing and footwear waiting to be reunited with their owners.

After tomorrow, all Lost & Found items will be included in the Family Fest Clothing Swap taking place on Friday after school and any remaining items after the swap will be donated to charity.

For example you can bring in shirts, T-shirts, shorts, pants, shoes, socks and other clothing. Hint think about all of the seasons, not just summer! Think winter coats, snow suits and boots. Even think of a rain storm!
