Updates and News Sept 26

Hello GBES Families,
Just a reminder that our curriculum night is tonight from 6:30-7:30.This is child friendly- students and siblings are welcome.  We'll be meeting in the Gym at 6:30 and then going to meet the teachers at 6:45.  We'll be announcing a switch around 7 pm to let families meet multiple teachers.


Just a reminder that we don't have school for students on Friday.  It is a Professional Development day for staff. 


Monday is Orange Shirt day.  It shows  we remember and shows we care about the many Indigenous children who, a very long time ago, had to go away to school.  We learn about this because this treatment was not fair and was not kind, both terms that young children can understand. There will be age appropriate discussions and activities related to Orange shirt day on Monday.


Hot lunch information went home today.  It will start being delivered next week.  You will need to get your orders in by Friday to get food delivered next week.


Our first fundraiser of the year- Santa's Little Helper- were sent  home today. They will be due back October 15th.  Funds raised will be going to support our kids.
