December 2, 2016 
  
Dear Parents,
 
 
Happy Friday!  It is hard to believe that it is already December and there are only three weeks until the Holiday break.
 
Goulbourn continues to be a very busy place for both students and staff.  Our girls' and boys' volleyball teams have been busy participating in exhibition and tournament play this week.  We thank Coaches Klassen, Boucher and Trotter Clare for their dedication to athletics and to our friends at Earl of March and Longfields Davidson Heights for inviting us over. 
 
On Thursday, we welcomed the University of Ottawa Maker Mobile.  Students had a wonderful day exploring laser cutting, 3D printing and robotics. It was an excellent opportunity to explore STEM initiatives using new software. Thank you to Mrs. Law for organizing these workshops.
 
Today we enjoyed an amazing concert by the South Carleton Guitar Ensemble and Senior Band.  It is always great to see our talented alumni doing well and showcasing their talent!
 
We also look forward to our Craft and Vendor Sale which will take place on Saturday.  We hope you will stop by GMS sometime between 9AM and 3PM to do some shopping. We will have a used book sale, bake sale, 34 prize raffles, and of course many vendors and crafters! Don't forget to have lunch at the canteen!  Thank you to Mme Klassen for her leadership and dedication to this fundraiser.
 
Looking ahead to next week….
 
As part of Computer Science Education Week, Goulbourn is joining in on the largest learning event in history.  On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at noon, students will have the opportunity to participate in the Hour of Code.  This one-hour introduction to computer science is designed to demystify ‘computer programming’ and to show that anybody can learn the basics of coding. Greyhounds who signed up will begin their orientation on Monday.  Thank you to Mr. Terrade and Mme MacLaren for providing this enriching opportunity.
  
On Tuesday, artist Amie Talbot will visit GMS to share her techniques of coloured pencil art.  Students who have registered for this session look forward to enhancing their skill set.  Thank you to Mrs. Friesen for organizing this workshop.
 
On Wednesday, as part of the OCDSB’s adjusted calendar, Greyhounds will follow a Monday schedule. Please check your timetable carefully to ensure that you are prepared for Monday’s classes on Wednesday.
 
Our Sounds of the Season concert will take place on Thursday, December 8th at 7 PM. Students involved in Concert Band, Jazz Band, G Notes choir and the Guitar Group will be showcasing their talents. All members of the GMS community are welcome to attend!  Also that evening, Sir Guy Carleton Secondary School is hosting their Parent Information session from 6:30PM to 8:00PM.  The school is located at 55 Centrepointe Drive in Nepean.
 
Finally, on Friday, Mrs. Hillsdon will accompany a group to see a production of the Nutcracker at Algonquin Commons Theatre.  Greyhounds look forward to seeing Sydney and Noella perform.  Thank you to Mrs. Hillsdon for organizing this field trip.
 
Have a fantastic weekend!  See you at the Craft and Vendor Sale tomorrow!

Hour of Code
 
 
 
The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching over 100 million students in over 180 countries. We live in a world surrounded by technology. We know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning how technology works. 
 
That’s why our school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 5-11). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code.
 
The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science. Students can choose from a variety of activities to learn the basics. No experience is necessary. Sign up outside Room 104 or 113 and join us during Computer Science Education Week.
