Principal / Vice Principal’s Message

This is the final week for PAC chocolate sales!  Please continue to bring your money or unsold chocolates to the staffroom each morning.  We appreciate how families have supported our big fundraising project!  All funds that are raised will go towards supporting student learning opportunities, school initiatives , and home / school communication (ie. field trips, Dance in School, Yoga lessons, a new school communication sign and more…)

Parent / Guardian Appreciation Tea & Variety Show is coming to GV! 

We look forward to celebrating our school volunteers during the morning of Thursday, May 23 @ 8:30 a.m.   Please join us in the Learning Commons for words of thanks, entertainment, treats and a warm beverage.  The Variety Show will follow afterwards at 9:00 a.m.  Please mark your calendar and plan to attend!

Pics From The Week

Learning Commons News

Many thanks to Clayton Gauthier – Cree/Dakelh Artist who kindly gave us permission to draw inspiration from his wonderful book The Salmon Run.

We are so proud of this collaborative Learning Commons project which included the participation of every student at our school. Each division looked at the life cycle of the salmon from an Indigenous Perspective: showing true colours, persevering in the face of struggles, following your heart, honouring your ancestors, protecting the environment and the interconnectedness of life. Safety First from Kindergarten to Grade 7:  Sanding the wood and drilling the holes. Thanks to Brian Newbold for the jigs. The painters each did one part of a salmon and were totally engaged in this cooperative project. Over 500 students made 100 fish.The project took one full month to complete, including our lessons and discussions before we started to create the plaques.
