Room Parents

We are hoping that each division in our school will have a room parent this year.   This parent volunteer will be a communication and support person for the classroom teacher and PAC.   A room parent will collect contact information from the parents in the class and use this list to pass on information or seek requests for help.  i.e. the class may need more drivers for a field trip or helpers for a special art activity.   Please see your classroom teacher if you are able to take on this important role.

Learning Commons News

What a super week it has been at Georges Vanier. Along with celebrating Diwali, we celebrated some great learning. Students in some divisions have begun to blog their accomplishments. They have been able to think about how to take a good photograph, crop it and upload to their own student blog. We also began to talk about how to leave a constructive and positive comment.

Halloween Safety

We look forward to some Halloween celebrations this week at GV.   On Friday, students are invited to wear appropriate costumes (nothing too frightening and no weapons / replicas) and primary children will participate in a parade in the gym.  Halloween safety will be reviewed at Monday’s school-wide assembly.  Have a happy and safe Halloween!
