September 2019 Principal’s Message

Date: September 6, 2019 Author: Jennifer Plaxton Categories: Principal's Message

Welcome back to the new school year at Greater Gatineau!  We are looking forward to a year of engaging learning experiences, fun-filled activities and exciting school community events!

Many of you have signed up for the free “Remind” app, which allows you to receive text or e-mail messages concerning important school news.  Our goal is to have ALL parents sign up for the app, so that you can receive important information.  If you sign-up, you will be advised immediately of a bus cancellation (bad weather), school closure, and other very important information.

Ask at the office for more details or look on the website for instructions on how to sign up.

In order to build school spirit, we have purchased t-shirts for all students and staff members of the school. You can wear the shirt at any time but we would encourage everyone to wear them on assembly days.

This week Mrs. Link and M. Tremblay (Vice-principal) will be having assemblies with all students to review Emergency Procedures (fire drill, lock-down and lock-in)

Construction update

The new top floor classrooms are currently being used, and they look wonderful. The new furniture will arrive at the end of the month. The bottom floor classrooms and daycare room will be ready in about two weeks. The outside courtyard will be ready at the end of the month.
