Annual GES Sports Day Tomorrow

I wanted to remind parents about GES Sports Day tomorrow-- rain or shine. The PAC will provide lunch at no charge-- a hot dog, a bottle of water and a freezie. Additional items will be available at the canteen, which will be in the under cover primary area.

The Primary students will be having their activities in the morning, while the intermediate students will be doing a variety of activities throughout the day. All students will get a participation ribbon, while the intermediate students will have three competitive events in which ribbons will be given out for places 1-6; 100 m dash, 800 m run and softball throw.

It should be a great day. Thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers. Thanks to the teachers for organizing the day as well.

Until tomorrow.

Fundraiser for Diabetes Research a Huge Success

Madison MacPhail, our own Canadian Ambassador for Diabetes Research, spearheaded a fundraising effort with last week's GES Coin Drive. We raised an amazing amount of money-- $1,173.48!!! How good is that? Division 6 raised $263.36 and will have free pizza tomorrow.

Great job everyone. You can read more about Madison by following the link on our webpage.

Until later.

Busy Day at GES

As I went to various classes this morning the level of activity was very high and students were busy engaged in their learning. I have included some photos of my visit to Mrs. Kopeck's class (both classes were singing and signing together). Students showed me their plants that were drooping, as well. Ms. Taylor was working on a fractions unit when I stopped by her class and I also included a picture from Mrs. Klan's class.
