Summer 2019 Appreciations

Date: June 27, 2019 Author: Jennifer Plaxton Categories: News Bits

THANK YOU TO OUR VOLUNTEERS

What would we have done without you? We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone from our community who took the time to help out this year at our school.

Your participation in Governing Board, field trips, sports events, cultural events, Home and School events, classroom support and our weekly food programs were greatly appreciated. Thank you for everything you have done to make Greater Gatineau a better place to be.

A FOND FAREWELL TO OUR VICE PRINCIPAL

We would like to thank Kate Smith for her excellent work during her time at Greater Gatineau. Her great energy, positive attitude and compassion have been so valuable to us here. She has been a wonderful addition to our team and we will miss her next year. She will be moving on to become the VP at Hadley/ Philemon so some of our students will continue to work with her as they move on to Jr High and High-school. Thanks for being part of the Greater Gatineau family, good luck in the future.

HAPPY RETIREMENT TO MRS. BARUFFA

Mrs. Baruffa has been a teacher at Greater Gatineau for many years. Her contributions to our school are too numerous to list. Many programs will feel her absence, from Reading Week and bringing in cultural activities to working on committees and supporting colleagues. She did it all while providing her students with the best program possible. Enjoy your well deserved break.

A HEARTFELT GOOD-BYE TO DEBBIE STAFFORD

Debbie joined our team a few years ago as our Secretary. She keeps all the records in order, registers new students, makes sure that teachers are covered when they are absent, makes sure the bills get paid (and the staff too), and so many other things behind the scenes to keep the school running smoothly. She will be moving on to be the secretary at Pontiac High School. Our loss is their gain. All the best moving forward.
