Gilmore’s Terry Fox Run will be happening Friday, September 29th from 1-3pm. At one o’clock, classes will come down to the gym for a short presentation and film on Terry Fox. Once the presentation is over classes will leave to participate in the run. The run will be held rain or shine so please ensure you are prepared and dressed for the weather.

GILMORE COMMUNITY FAMILY PICNIC
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2017 @ 11:30am -2:30pm – CONFEDERATION PARK
We invite all Gilmore families (parents, siblings, grand parents) to join staff and students in Grade 1 to Grade 7 at our Community Family Picnic on Friday, September 15. To help your student fully enjoy themselves please make sure they bring the following: Walking shoes, lunch, water bottle, a book to read, sun screen, hat, towel and water-park clothing (and dry clothing for the walk back to school). Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather and is wearing good shoes for walking from the school to Confederation Park and back.
It is our expectation for all Gilmore students to participate in the Community Family Picnic so please be sure to return your child’s WALKING FIELD TRIP FORM to the school. If you do not have a form, there are extra forms available at the office.
Welcome back to another school year! We hope you and your family had a relaxing and enjoyable summer break, and we hope you are as excited for this school year as we are.
Full day classes begin tomorrow morning at 8:50 (for Grades 1 – 7), with students again returning to their last year’s teacher. Students will then be assigned a new “homeroom teacher” for the remainder of the week, but will be staying with their classmates from last year. If all goes according to plan, this year’s classroom placements will be finalised by Monday morning, at which time your child will be placed with their teacher for this year.
Teachers will be sending home a number of important notices over the course of the second week (including a school supply list specific to your child’s classroom) so please make sure to look for them in your child’s bag.
Welcome to the 2017 – 2018 school year, Gilmore Community! Let’s make it a great one!
