Principal's Message - October
September flew by, and it sure was a nice start! I hope that all of you are checking our website at gibbonsschool.ca as it will have important school dates and information for the classroom. Each class has a google calendar for our students to check for homework, and the calendar is updated regularly. PowerSchool is also a method of staying informed about school and your child’s education. Parent-Teacher Conferences will be in November, and your child’s teachers look forward to chatting with you about your child’s year so far. Remember you can touch base with your child’s teacher any time; their emails are on our website or PowerSchool.
Our Terry Fox run was a huge success! Thanks so much for the volunteer hours that went into concession, set-up and take down. Our students are lucky to have such a lovely trail to run.
We enjoyed a few presentations by our Addictions Counsellor who will be presenting in all Health Classes by the end of the year. She has presented on topics such as gaming and internet use, to tobacco and vaping thus far.
Parent Council is providing a Pancake breakfast to our WHOLE school on October 6th and I am always amazed at how successful this is. It takes a lot of volunteers and we appreciate it SO much!
Have a wonderful October and enjoy the fall weather,
