This morning, Golden Learning students and staff welcomed our new librarian, Mrs. VanDusen, to our favorite spot in the school (the library!). Mrs. Vandusen attended Fanshawe College (London, Ontario) and graduated in 1982 (Librarian Technician). She’s been working in this field for many years, with her roots going as far back as the old Balmertown-Cochenour Public School. She is an avid reader with a particular love of picture books, and of course like most librarians, has a soft spot for Dr. Seuss! Mrs. VanDusen is looking forward getting involved with the chess club and meeting all of the students at GLC.
We welcome her and wish her all the best in her librarian position at Golden Learning Centre!
This afternoon, GLC students and staff are hosting a Come and Go Tea for Ms. Phillips. Individual classrooms will visit with Ms. Phillips sometime throughout the day, but we are also inviting the community members to bid her a “wonderful retirement”. If you would like to come, please note that the library/school will be open until 6pm this evening. We have an assortment of sandwiches, squares and of course, tea for your visit. Please come and extend your “thank yous” for a job most-excellently done!
On Tuesday, November 5th GLC students will have their photos taken by Lifetouch Canada Inc. Order forms were sent home last week, but are also available at the office if you need a new one.
Although you can return the form on Tuesday morning, Lifetouch also offers an online ordering option. If you’d like to check this out, please click here. The GLC Picture Day ID is QL893199Y0. Once you enter the ID number and your child’s first name, click SUBMIT.
Select your poses and backgrounds, enter payment information and then print. Send that paper with your child on Tuesday.
Please remember that we are an allergen-vigilant school. During this post-Halloween season, we would like to remind you that students must not bring any treat that contains peanuts, peanut butter or other nuts as we have many students and staff that have a severe allergy to these items.
Progress Reports will go home with students on Friday, November 8th. On Wednesday, November 13th Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held between 3:30 and 6:00pm.
GLC will host a Remembrance Day Ceremony on Monday, November 11th. Please consider attending as we honor this important day.
The Grade 7s and 8s are currently fundraising for their 2013 Western Canada School Trip. They will be selling seafood and chicken fingers door-to-door from now until November 18th.
The GLC book fair will begin on Monday (more information to follow in a subsequent website post).
Ten GLC students recently attended the Mid-Canada Elementary Cross County race in Thunder Bay. The top 20 boys and girls from our local meet (Red Lake Area Golf Course on October 4th) qualified to participate in this event. For the girls team, GLC was happy to see runners from Grade 5 to 8 participate (Raija, Rebecca P, Lisa, Taylor, and Emma). The GLC male runners were Andre, Kai, Ethan, Matthew and Trent. All 4 local schools (GLC, EFPS, RLMPS, and St. John’s) compete in this event and together we make one large Red Lake Area cross country running team. Please see the Northern Sun News for further details on this event.
