George Bissett Elementary

This Week @ GBES Dec 3-7

Hey Families,
-This is a big week as we release report cards Tuesday and get to meet in Parent-Teacher meetings.  If you haven’t scheduled an appointment yet, go to https://georgebisset.schoolappointments.com  . If you are having trouble, please call us at the main office (902)464-5184. 
-We are still in early winter weather phase with cold weather, and warmer wet weather.  The forecast is looking like warm and wet on Monday and it gets colder over the week.  A change of clothes is important for all students just in case they get wet or muddy. 
-Please start putting aside items for our Santa Gift-Mart.  We collect new or gently used items that we sell just before Christmas so students buy gifts for family members.  It is always fun to see what children will pick for family members.  We will be collecting items starting in December.  We always need volunteers to wrap presents on December 18th.
-We will be having a SAC and PTO make up meetings on Tuesday night.  SAC will meet at 6:30 and PTO at 7:30 pm. 
-Government has launched a survey to hear from parents and guardians of students about their experience with the public school bus system.  https://www.ednet.ns.ca/bussurvey
-December is a stressful time.  I have attached a great infograpgh on stress behaviour from the Mehrit Centre. https://self-reg.ca/resources/

Have a great week,

Mr. Fry
