Thanks to everyone who attended the Halloween Dance. It was a record breaking attendance. We saw some awesome costumes and dance moves. Thank you to everyone who helped with the cleanup, it was greatly appreciated.

New 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 this week. Samko Fundraiser

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

This year’s Scholastic Book Fair will be held on November 22 (3 to 8 pm) and November 23 (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. The Grade 6 students will also be there selling baked goods, coffee and tea to raise funds from their graduation.

Make sure to mark December 7 on your calendar and reserve some time to discover local businesses and artisans at this year’s Holiday Fair. Santa will make a special appearance. Come take a picture with him or deliver your Christmas list. Be sure to follow our Facebook page to get the list of vendors attending.

The Greater Gatineau Silent Auction is coming back in May. We are looking for ideas of businesses we can approach for donations. If you have any ideas, please don’t hesitate to share with us. Let’s work together to make this auction even more successful than the last one.

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