Home / school communication is always important and can be a challenge. At Georges Vanier we communicate to parents in the following ways; weekly blog, Twitter, school web page, FreshGrade, school sign, PAC, Tea Time, school events, classroom notices, and one-on-one conversations. As we come to the end of the school year, we will also send home a print newsletter to highlight important dates, events and make a request for parent volunteers. Thanks for your support at GV and know that we always welcome and value your feedback.
Learning Commons News
At Georges Vanier, the Learning Commons is a shared space that is used by staff and students for lots of great activities. We are helping further a sense of ownership by inviting students to bring a plush toy to hang out on the shelves in the LC for a couple of weeks. Please label stuffies with your child’s name and division. No sentimental favourites, just in case…
Parent / Guardian Appreciation – May 26, 8:25 a.m.
We look forward to honouring our many volunteers who help support our school! Parents / guardians volunteer on PAC, drive and chaperone on field trips, read with students in classrooms, support English Language Learners, volunteer at breakfast club, help out in our clothing exchange, organize special events, and assist us in many other ways. Please see the invitation that will be sent home this week and we look forward to celebrating your involvement at GV.
Vanier Variety Show – May 26, 9:00 – 9:40 a.m.
We looking forward to celebrating our students’ varied talents on the big screen and on stage! Parents and family members are welcome to attend.
