Our weekly forecast April 1-5

Hey GBES Families!
Report cards came home last week. This is one way to discuss the progress your child made last term.  Please come in for our parent-teacher conferences on April 10 6-8 pm, and April 11 1-3 pm.  This is another fantastic way to hear about your child’s learning.  To make online appointments, please follow this link: This link is also on our school website .This will let you schedule your meeting time with each teacher. If you are having trouble contact us at the main office.  If you don’t have computer access- please call to set up an appointment or drop into the main office. 902-464-5184.
We had a grant to bring in Sportball to work with our Gr 1 students for 8 weeks.  We have gotten a second grant for 8 weeks for Sportball to work with our Grade Primary students.  It was a great first session last Friday.  More info:
We had other guests in the school- Neptune Touring company was in on Friday morning, and Thursday we had Rocks and Rings (curling) with all classes on Thursday. 
We are looking forward to our Grade ½ and Grade 3 classes going to Mermaid Theatre in Windsor on Wednesday for a field trip.  This is a hot lunch day.  Pizzas will be available for students to eat when they return but they will need a bag lunch for the trip.
There is some rain in the forecast but warm weather.  Layers and a change of clothes.  By lunch many students are looking to shed their winter coats and a hoodie or sweater is what they need to play in.   And, with rain in the forecast, mud mud mud.  Please send extra clothes.
