Staff and students alike are hard at work preparing a “media campaign” of sorts for the introduction our new School Message, coming at the start of next school year. Our message will be:
At Gilmore, we are: Safe, Fair, Kind
Here’s a “sneak peek” at one of the posters you will start seeing around the school promoting this positive message.
Have a safe, fair and kind summer!
I’d like to take the opportunity to tell you of some exciting news. This Fall, Rosser Elementary will become an annex school of Gilmore Community School.
Since 2003, the District has operated a successful annex school model in two Burnaby neighbourhoods. With this model, a vice-principal will be assigned to Rosser Elementary and I will be the Principal of both schools. Students will stay in their current schools with their own clubs and sports. We will have our own Community Council with Chair Bill Brassington, and Rosser will have its own Parent Advisory Council. Both schools will maintain their own names and identities with their own school goals, yet students and staff will also be able to come together to work collaboratively.
This is a wonderful opportunity for both Gilmore Community School and Rosser Elementary. If you have any questions please contact me directly.
Principal Dennis Taylor
