Principal / Vice Principal’s Message

We enjoyed an active and exciting opening week at GV!  It has been wonderful to reconnect with our students and families.  During the week, students were engaged in grade group learning which centred around our “Kindness Counts” theme.  On Thursday and Friday our volunteer friends from Horizon led Gym Blast and we also enjoyed Kindness Counts Button Day on Friday!

Early next week students will be settled into classes and get to know their teachers for the year.  We ask that you support our careful class placement decision making and help your child to settle into their new environment.  If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s placement, please make an appointment to see Mr. Dekerf.

PAC Parents Advisory Council

Our first PAC meeting of the year will take place on Monday morning at 9:00 a.m. in the PAC room.  All parents are welcome to attend.  During this meeting we hope to elect a new PAC executive.  Please join us and learn more about PAC!

Learning Commons News

Welcome to another exciting year of reading, creating, problem solving and making in the Vanier Learning Commons. To keep up to date with all of our news and events check out the LC blog or on Twitter @crosland_a
We are very proud of our great collection of library books. Please help us to take care of our resources. Most book damage comes from leaking water bottles or food in backpacks or from scribbling by younger family members. Please do not try to fix torn or damaged books at home as we will attempt to salvage well-loved books. Parents and guardians are made aware of any lost or permanently damaged books. Replacement costs can range from $5 to $20. Your assistance in helping us maintain our collection is greatly appreciated.
