A beautiful Halloween clay project completed by the students in Mme Brenna’s classroom today.  A wonderful collaborative and creative effort by the students!

Congratulations to Garibaldi Highlands students!  We raised over $4000 for cancer research at our annual Terry Fox Run.  A great accomplishment.

It has been a busy October at Garibaldi Highlands Elementary.  Last week we held a very successful Terry Fox Run.  Students gathered together for a special assembly where student leaders taught us a little about Terry Fox and his goal to find a cure for Cancer.  Our students had a good run/walk and we are still counting our donations!  Earlier in the week, we held our “meet the teacher’ event and book fair, along with a GHE potluck dinner.  It was very well attended, there was delicious food and it was a nice community event.

Next week, 23 of our student leaders will be heading to Vancouver to take part in WE DAY.  The students will come back motivated to take on projects to help those in need.

  • Thursday, October 23 is individual photo day.  Don’t forget your big smiles!
  • Friday, October 24 is a Provincial Professional Development day and there will be no school for students.

Learning Resources

A number of parents have requested additional/supplemental learning resources to use with their children during the current labour dispute.   We have updated our website to include some useful links for students and parents:

Amongst the services provided by LearnNow BC to students is access to live tutoring five nights per week from 6 – 10 pm.  Other resources include the Charged-Up streaming video lessons for Math, as well as self-assessment tests through Success Checker.  These resources are freely accessible through  www.learnnowbc.ca

Here is the link to GHE’s page of learning links.

Here is a nice article about preparing K/1 students for French immersion.

School Supply Lists

Hello GHE parents and students,

I am posting a pdf file that contains all of the school supply lists for grades 1-6.  For kindergarten, arrangements will be made between parents and teachers once the school year begins.  Please continue to check our websites, as well as the media, for updates on the current labour dispute.
