Summer Updates

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are enjoying a happy summer and that you have had the opportunity to do at least one new or exciting thing with your family.  The weather has been a challenge but it has hopefully not put a damper on what you have been up to.

PLAYGROUND – the playground is ready to go and installation will begin on August 21st!  It will take at least a week to get it installed and then will require a round of inspections before it can be opened.  Please resist the temptation to climb the fence around it to play and wait until we have the ‘all clear’!  I will let everyone know when that is.

STAFF NEWS – We are still in the process of hiring and I have two days of interviews next week.  We are welcoming Ms. Shory (DECE to Kindergarten), Mme. Nastic (French), Mr. Gulab (Community Class/SERT), Mr. Warren (Caretaking) and Mr. Dava (Caretaking).  Still to be added to the team is a Secretary and another Teacher.  We are so excited to welcome everyone to the team and know you will join me in showing them what it means to be a Maverick!

A huge shout out to Mr. Marshall and Mr. Mete who have worked hard this summer to scrub the school clean.  It is looking good in here!

Enjoy the rest of the week and look for more updates in the next two weeks.

Be safe and have fun!

GOLD!

Congratulations to Devon, one of our Intermediate students who won GOLD today in the 400m individual medley at the Ontario Provincial Championships. She smashed her personal best time. Great way to kick off summer! 

Thank You!

Thank you and congratulations to everyone on a successful school year!  Wishing each of you a wonderful long weekend. Stay tuned to the blog for playground and teacher hiring details. 

2017-2018 Agenda Pre-Orders – Reminder

Hello GMPS Families!

Thank you to those of you who have already pre-ordered agendas for the next school year. We recommend that every student from Grade 1 to Grade 8 use an agenda as a helpful tool to record homework and communication with the teacher.

The deadline has been extended – if you are interested in purchasing an agenda for next year, please place your orders online. There is a flyer attached also, for your reference.

The agendas will be distributed on the first day of school, and will NOT be available to order in September.
