From the Principal
I must start by sending out a sincere and heartfelt, THANK YOU, to all of our students, parents and staff as we had such a great start up this school year in September. We already have a lot of great memories and I look forward to carrying this momentum forward.
In looking back on September, our opening welcome and open house BBQ was a huge success. It was such a pleasure meeting all the students with their moms and dads as they had big smiles on both occasions. This could not have been done without the help of our Glendale staff and the Parent Association. I know from working with their leadership - both the Parent Association and School Council - would love to see more people participate if you are able. We also had some other great school events to celebrate: band kickoff, GSTS Cardboard Challenge, Parent-Teacher Conferences, field studies, Dawe Run, Grade 8 Shunda Creek, and the volleyball season start up.
This month we have and have had two successful school fundraisers! Our Indigo Adopt-a-School fundraiser was a great success with an online digital drive raising more than 100 books for our learning commons! Also, on October 13 we are finishing up our AD-mazing Coupon Book Fundraiser. These efforts go towards making our school a better place and our community support is greatly appreciated.
October is already shaping up to be a busy month, so hold on! We are excited about the Civic Elections at GSTS (Oct 16), Book Fair (Oct 17-19), Grade 5 Immunizations (Oct 25), Middle School Retreats (Oct 25-26-27), Gladiator Awards (Oct 30), Halloween Parade (Oct 31) and our Volleyball athletic season, to name a few!!!
To conclude, I wish you all the best and I hope to see lots of parents out to our School Council Meeting on Oct 17, 2017 - 7pm-8:30pm. Many cheers ahead.
