Parents’ Night Out!

Thank you to all of the Gledhill parents, friends and staff who came out and made Friday night’s Trivia Night and Silent Auction a big success. Our trivia host, Terrance Balazo, kept us all on our game with some challenging trivia. Awesome job Terrance. Terrance gave us a shout out on twitter …

A big thanks to the many Gledhill parents and community businesses that donated items and services for the Silent Auction. It was a popular auction and, of course, helped Gledhill’s School Council raise funds for some of the programs we sponsor at the school. Finally, thanks to the organizing team (Jill, Lisa, Melissa and Andrea), volunteers and school administration for taking care of all of the logistical, behind the scenes preparation (this event couldn’t have been an adults only, licensed event without a bit of planning!)

Silent Auction Items

We hope you are planning to attend the Trivia Night and Silent Auction event this Friday February 19 from 7:00pm to 10:00pm. Last year’s event was a lot of fun and we’re hoping that this year is even better. We have collected many great items for the silent auction including …

  • Tragically Hip memorabilia,
  • tickets for Kinky Boots,
  • tickets for Young People’s Theatre,
  • classes with Theatricks (Drama with Jeff),
  • Arbonne gift baskets,
  • jewelry,
  • and much more!

Please donate!  We have been very fortunate to receive many donations from parents already and we truly appreciate the generosity of our parent community. We ask if you have already offered a donation that you bring the item to the school’s office by Thurs. Feb. 18. For anyone who has not yet donated, but may be able to, please email us at gledhillschoolcouncil@gmail.com.

We are looking forward to a great event and we hope to see many of you on Friday!

Volunteers needed for Trivia/Auction Night


This coming Friday, February 19th, Gledhill School Council is hosting our third annual Parents Night Out. This ever popular evening of Trivia combined with a Silent Auction will be an adults only event – yes, it will be licensed!

We are still in need of a few volunteers for the event. If you are willing and able to dedicate some of your evening, we need volunteers for the following …

  • 2 volunteers to help sell tickets at the door and to help clear tables, etc.
  • 2 volunteers to help with table and chair clean up at the end of the evening (10:00-ish)

Please contact gledhillschoolcouncil@gmail.com if you are interested in helping out.

Start brushing up on your trivia knowledge now! Hope to see many of you there!

There are a growing number of items for the mini Silent Auction portion of next Friday’s Parents’ Night Out. These include:
