George Bissett Elementary

This Week @ GBES Dec 10-14

Hey Families,
Last week was a huge week with parent-teacher meetings, and report card being released.  I always appreciate feedback that we can use to improve our process, or pass along to the Regional Centre.  I appreciate any feedback on the on-line appointment site.  This was a new site to us.  Send me feedback to jfry@hrce.ca .


Christmas concert tickets will be released on Wednesday December 12.  2 tickets will be sent home with the youngest member of the family (grade Primary and up).  There will be a large pool of extra tickets.  Please email gbes@hrce.ca subject: tickets if you need more tickets to the show.  You can also call the main office to make the request.    Ticket requests need to be by the 14th.  Tickets will be sent home on the 17th. 


This week’s pictures showcase: Grade 3 students showing off their math learning, Mr. Saunier and the Grade 1/2s practicing for the Christmas concert, Grade Primaries working on writing and art with their elves, and a quiet morning  shot of sun and snow- Winter is here.


Winter weather  is here. This week is forecasted to be sunny and cold.  This means we expect to be out for the week at recess and lunch.  Layers, snowpants, and a change of clothes is important for all students. 


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 Monday.  We always need volunteers to wrap presents on December 18th. Email or call to let us know if you can volunteer.

Have a good week,

Mr. Fry
