November 2019 Home & School

Date: October 31, 2019 Author: Jennifer Plaxton Categories: Home and School

Thanks to everyone who attended the Fall Harvest Dance. We saw some awesome dance moves. Thank you to everyone who helped with the cleanup, it was greatly appreciated.

Again, this year, GGHS is partnering up with the Samko & Miko Toy Warehouse for another fundraising activity. You shop, we raise funds! All the details will be sent home soon.

On November 16th, we will host our first Movie Night of the year. Put your pyjamas on and bring your favorite teddy to watch “The Secret Life of Pets 2”. Look for the invitation in your child’s backpack next week.

This year, we decided to do a little more to help the families in need in our community. We will be collecting items for the Christmas Food Drive at this month’s Movie Night. For each item you donate, you will be entered into a draw for a chance to win a $10 Chapters gift card.

This year’s Scholastic Book Fair will be held on November 21st (3 to 8 pm) and November 22nd (8 am to noon).  Come shop and help school gain scholastic credits for each classroom. Returning this year is the “wish list wall” from teachers. Offer a book to your child’s classroom.

Make sure to mark December 6th on your calendar and reserve some time to discover local businesses and artisans at this year’s Holiday Fair. Be sure to follow our Facebook page to get the list of vendors attending.

The next H&S meeting will be held Tuesday, November 5th at 6:30 p.m. in the staff room.

As always, follow our Facebook page (Greater Gatineau Home and School) to keep up-to-date with all the information regarding our events.  For questions, comments, and suggestions please email us at or reach out through our Facebook page.
