This week, Mrs. Law accompanied the Math Club to the Apple Store at Bayshore Math. Students enjoyed their two workshops (Digital Marketing and Interactive Storytelling) and their special mall Math Trek. Thank you to Mrs. Law for providing this extension and to the parent volunteers who joined the group.
On Tuesday, Mr. Donkor and Mrs. Wiggins will take our concert and jazz band members to South Carleton for their Massed Band practice. We wish them the best of luck!
On behalf of School Council, I would like to invite you to attend our April 25th meeting. At this meeting we will review our Dress Code policy. We will meet in the GMS Library at 6:30 PM. New members are always welcome!
As part of the adjusted timetable, on Wednesday, GMS will follow the Monday schedule. Students should check their timetables carefully to ensure that they have all of the required materials.
After months of preparation, our annual play will be performed for our students and community. Guests from Richmond PS and John Young ES will attend a matinee performance of Annie JR on Wednesday and Greyhounds will have their opportunity to see classmates on stage on Thursday. Goulbourn parents and community members are invited to the evening performances on April 26th and 27th. Tickets for the 7PMperformances can be purchased in advance or at the door at the cost of $5.00. Best of luck to our amazing team of actors, stage crew, tech crew and directors!
The costume department is still in need of a few items. If you have any of the following items, we would love to borrow them for the week: an old fashioned phone, an old fashioned radio, a black fedora, two pairs of suspenders, a pair of coveralls and a briefcase. They can be dropped off in the office or in Room 114.
The Scholastic Book Fair will take place from April 25th until 27th. Classes will have an opportunity to purchase books during the afternoon of the 25th and during the day on the 26th with their classes or an hour before each of our evening Annie JR performances. Thank you to Mrs. Johnson for providing this opportunity for our students. We are looking for some parent volunteers who might be able to help us with the Book Fair during the day on Wednesday April 26th. If you might be able to help out, please email Mrs. Johnson at JoannePJohnson@ocdsb.ca
On Friday, as part of the Health curriculum, Heather Jones from Rideauwood Addiction and Family Services returns to GMS for the final grade 8 workshop of the school year. This workshop will focus on Stress Management and Healthy Coping Skills. We are very fortunate to have such a great partnership with Rideauwood.
Enjoy the weekend!
