This Weeks ‘little’ Details

Hi Everyone!  Just a few helpful details to answer the questions you might have about this week.

Tomorrow is Grade 8 Graduation.  Tickets have been sent home.  Grads are to arrive for 5:00 to Thornhill GCC and the ceremony will begin at 5:30 p.m.  There will be an opportunity for pictures and to have punch after the ceremony and we have someone coming to take pictures during the ceremony so that parents can watch instead of worrying about getting the pictures.  No jeans allowed.


  • Mr. Sub will be delivered tomorrow
  • Milk will be delivered Tuesday and Thursday
  • There is NO PIZZA

REPORT CARDS will go home on Wednesday at the end of the day.  If you are leaving before that time, reports will be available in the office for pick up next week or the last week of August.  Teacher names for next year will be on the report cards.  There are still a few teachers to be hired for next year, so that information will be blogged out as it is ready.  We do not take requests for class placements and the staff have worked incredibly hard to match students appropriately for many many reasons.  There is a letter from the Principal included with the report cards as well as a variety of other inserts.

PLAY DAY – Primary Play Day is scheduled for tomorrow, so please send your child ready to be outside and active.  Rain plans are also being made.

Grade 7 Introductions – the Grade 6’s from Bayview Glen are coming tomorrow to do some team building and getting to know you activities with the GMPS Grade 6’s.  This will ease everyone’s transition for next year.

EARLY DISMISSAL is Thursday at 12:00.  Please make sure that you pick up your children by that time or that you have alternate arrangements made.  Staff will be unavailable to supervise as we have a meeting beginning promptly afterwards.

CHARACTER MATTERS – our Final Assembly is Wednesday at 10:00a.m.  If your child is getting a certificate, notes will be coming home tonight.  The assembly will include a farewell to Mr. Baumann who is retiring, as well as mention of those other staff and students who are heading elsewhere for September.

SUMMER – the school is closed over the summer, except for the Daycare.  If you need to reach someone over the summer – please email me at and I will monitor my email as I am able.

We have had an incredible year here at GMPS and I am so proud of everything we have accomplished, both individually and collectively.  Our Mavericks are truly amazing kids with so many strengths and talents.  I look forward to next year and all that we will be up to!  Thank you to everyone!
