Dear Parents,
Happy Friday!  We have survived two days of indoor recesses!
Mrs. Wiggins’ English classes welcomed LCdr Nicole Newell last week as part of the Historica Canada Memory Project, a nationwide project that connects Veterans and Canadian forces personnel with the opportunity to share their stories with Canadians in classroom and community forums.  This was a wonderful way to begin thinking about Veterans Week and our upcoming Remembrance Day Ceremony.
A huge congratulations goes out to all of our grade 6, 7 and 8 Cross Country runners who competed in their meets over the past two weeks.  They all ran their hearts out and wore garnet and grey with pride. Kudos to Kaitlyn, Rheese, Daniel, Zac, Maya, Menna, Evelyn, Shilpa, Olivia, Lana, Emma and Sydney who qualified for Boards and competed in rainy and muddy conditions on Thursday.  Coaches Klassen and Hillsdon are very proud of you. We thank all of our parent drivers who drove athletes to their meets.  We could not have done it without your support!
On Wednesday, Greyhounds welcomed Tom Thistle​ as part of our Green Team’s education initiatives.  Tom shared important information about recycling and energy conservation.  He also shared the amount of waste Goulbourn generates per year and while the number is quite high, we are still ranked within the average range.
On Thursday, 46 students participated in the first Caribou Contest of the year.  We are delighted to see such an interest in Mathematics and we are thrilled that Mrs. Law provides this enrichment opportunity for our students.
Monday is a busy day at GMS.  It is photo retake day.  Students who require a retake must ensure that they are at school on time as photos will be taken right after the announcements. As well, Mrs. Smith's classes will be treated to a special presentation by editor and poet Stuart Ross.
Additionally, Mr. Boucher and Mr. McIntyre are starting an Open Gym program.  On Mondays grade 6 and 7 students and on Fridays grade 8 students will have the opportunity to spend time in the gym at lunch hour.
On behalf of School Council, we would like to invite you to join us for our October 25th meeting.  We meet at 6:30PM in the GMS Library.  New members are always welcome!
Finally, the ‘Free the Children’ club is issuing a challenge to all Greyhound families.  We are participating in the “We Scare Hunger! food drive to provide non-perishable items to the Food Bank. Please bring in your item(s) before October 31st to support this initiative!
​Enjoy the weekend!  Stay dry!

Congratulations !!

William was the only youth invited to be a special guest at yesterday's announcement of the new Royal Canadian Geographical Society building.
It was a really amazing event and opportunity for Will to meet several explorers. Alex Trebek called Will up to the podium to congratulate him on being the youngest finalist in the competition.
