COIN WAR – On May 16th, 17th, and 18th, our GHE Leadership students are going to be hosting a Coin War.  This is how it works. Each division will have a container labeled with their class name outside the office.  Only Quarters, Loonies and Toonies will be collected.  Quarters will be counted as 1 point for the class container they are in and Loonies will be counted as 5 points.  Toonies will be 10 points against the class container they are in.  Start thinking strategy! The class with the most points will win and the winning class will be announced on Friday afternoon.  Let the games begin!  The money raised will be donated to the We Day Foundation’s initiative to provide safe drinking water to all citizens of our planet.

LIBRARY NEWS

It has been a  busy week in the library.  We have had author visits from Nora Ryan, Ann Alma (talking about her latest kids’ gardening book) and Ashely Spires(Chocolate Lily author/illustrator.)  The kids have really enjoyed these valuable and inspirational visits.  Thank you again to our PAC for their funding of these events!

 

Ready Set Learn!

On Monday we had a Ready, Set, Learn event in the library for preschoolers and parents.  We read books, drew pictures, cut shapes and modelled with plasticene.   Our focus was on fine motor skills.  We will have another session on Mon. June 13 from 2:00-3:00.  We hope to see you there.

GHE Bike Rodeo!
