This Week at GMPS

We certainly cannot complain about the temperature outside these days!  As the temperature cools down outside, the amount of learning heats up inside and we are so excited about all of the great things going on here at GMPS and can’t wait to share them with you!

THIS WEEK you will have an opportunity to begin to sign up for Parent – Teacher Interviews.  The online booking system will open at noon on Thursday November 10th.  Instructions will be put on the Blog later this week, so please watch for them.  The interviews will be happening on Thursday November 24th in the evening and Friday November 25th during the day.

Remembrance Day is November 11th (Friday) and we will be having a special ceremony and assembly here at GMPS.  We will begin at 10:30 and end at 11:30 for a postponed recess.  If you are in the area and would like to join us, we will gladly have the first 80 guests come to participate.  After that, we have to abide by the fire code.  Please remember that this is a reflective and commemorative gathering and that pictures and videos will not be permitted.

Thank you to everyone who has donated to the Playground Fund.  We will post an update as soon as we have calculated the results.  If you are still interested in donating, please speak to Ms. Cameron.

Movie Night was a FANTASTIC night!  We had a huge turnout of families and everyone had a good time.  Thanks to our School Council for gathering us together for some fun.

Our next School Council meeting will take place on November 21st in the library.  We have a special guest speaker coming to talk about Literacy and the importance of engaging with your children in language and literacy.  Stay tuned for details.
