Sports Day

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Just a friendly reminder that Sports Day is this Friday, June 16th. We have attached the “Shape of the Day” for both the Primary and Intermediate schedules to this email for your convenience. You will notice that although they will be doing different activities throughout the day, we have aligned all the times on both schedules so everything runs simultaneously. We encourage parents/family members to join us in encouraging our students throughout the day, so please join us on Friday if you can.

* Please note this is not an early dismissal day.  If you choose to take your child home early, he/she must be signed out with the classroom teacher and at the office.

RAIN PLAN – In the event of heavy rain on Friday, the staff will make the call by 8am whether to postpone to the following Friday (June 23) or continue as scheduled. We will email and send a text remind, so please make sure to check before bringing your child to school.

Hot Lunch – Hot lunch will proceed as normal on Friday regardless of rain, but it will be delivered at 11:35am.  Parents are welcome to eat with their children either inside or outside the classroom on Friday.

Team Cheers in the Gym at 9:15am – With increasing numbers in the primary grades this year, we have decided to not have the Kindergarten & Grade 1 classes in the gym for the Intermediate cheers. Many of the younger students were quite overwhelmed last year during the cheering, so we thought it best to invite these younger  classes down for the beginning of the assembly to “showcase their colours” before heading outside to begin their activities. Once the Kindergarten & Grade 1 classes have left the gym, we will proceed with the intermediate cheers.

Also due to our increased number this year and school fire code regulations, we are asking all parents to please STAY OUTSIDE of the gym during the assembly. We will have all the doors open so parents can hear the cheers. Thank you for your understanding.   

Thank you and hope to see you on Friday!

Mr. Gordon – Principal

Every single dish prepared was delicious and very much appreciated by everyone. We are very fortunate to have such a strong and supportive parent community.

We are encouraging all of our students to bike or walk to school every day!  Each day a tally will be taken to see how many students in each class participated.  The class with the highest participation will win a pizza party.  Students that live out of our catchment area are encouraged to participate by getting dropped off close to the school where you can still bike or walk the rest of the way!

Please remember that a bike helmet is mandatory and parents and students need to walk their bikes on school property to ensure the safety of everyone.

GHE Admin Update

Posted on Updated on

Dear Parents/Guardians,

It has been a busy week here at GHE with lots of administrative changes. As you now know, Erin Boisvert will has been assigned as the new Principal effective August 1, 2017. Erin is joining us from Whistler Secondary as Vice Principal, and has a wealth of knowledge at the elementary level. I know Erin quite well and I know she is going to fit in very well here in our school community.

I also wanted to let you know that Chris Matheson, current Vice Principal at GHE, has been placed in the District Principal pool , but will remain at GHE as Vice Principal next year. Mr. Matheson has made a great impression during his first 3 weeks at the school and I know everyone is really excited for him to continue on with us next year.

Finally, I am happy to announce that we have also been assigned a 2nd Vice Principal for next year! Monica Martin is joining us from School District #93 (CSF) and brings a wealth of French Immersion experience. Ms. Martin is very excited to be joining our school community and I know she will fit right in.

Please join me in welcoming Ms. Boisvert and Ms. Martin to our team, and also in congratulating Mr. Matheson!

Have a great weekend,

Brayden Gordon –  Principal
