This Friday, May 17th, G.L.C. will be hosting our annual school track and field meet for all students grades 4-8. The event will begin at 9:15 a.m. and last the whole day. Please consider the following important updates! PLEASE NOTE THAT THE INFORMATION ENCLOSED IN THIS BLOG POST APPLIES ONLY TO STUDENTS AND PARENTS IN GRADES 4-8!!!!! (including information about the canteen– this is available only to students participating in our meet tomorrow)
1) Students should dress in appropriate attire for the weather, as the forecast looks to be warm with a mix of sun and cloud. This includes sports clothing, a hat, water, sunscreen and bug spray. PLEASE DO NOT BRING ANY TENTS!
2) A concession stand will be available for students to purchase some snacks and drinks. It will not be open at second nutrition break since students will return to their classrooms for lunch and have regular recess. Even if they plan to eat at the canteen, students should consider bringing extra nutritious snacks for second break, since they will be active all day and surely extra hungry! A full canteen price list may be viewed at the end of this post.
3) In our attempt to host a waste-free track meet, students are asked to bring a refillable water bottle and a bowl if they would like to purchase a serving of chips, veggies or dip. If the weather turns cooler we will sell hot chocolate so students should bring their own mug too.
4) If you are able to volunteer for any of our track events, please contact the school secretary as soon as possible. All family and friends are welcome to come and cheer on our students.
The Canteen Menu
Mini Pizzas (Pepperoni/Cheese): $2.00
Chips (bring a bowl!): $1.00
Carrots and Celery with Dip (bring a bowl!): $0.50
Watermelon Slice: $0.50
Combo Special: Hamburger with either watermelon OR veggies and dip: $3.25
Next Friday, May 17, Golden Learning Centre will host a full-day school track and field meet for students grades 4-8. All students will participate in events throughout the day and those who qualify to move on to the district track meet in Ear Falls the week of May 20th will be determined.
Students should dress for all possible weather (dressing in layers is recommended) and be sure to pack appropriate protective gear including sunscreen and an umbrella. A well-balanced lunch should also be packed with a water bottle and several drinks.
A canteen will be in operation to purchase some food items including BBQ’d hamburgers and beverages.
Parent volunteers are required for various jobs throughout the day. If you are available to help out, please inform Mrs. Bulawka by phone or email!
Just a reminder that every new child is welcomed to G.L.C. at any time.
Our secretary is always ready for new registrations.
We look forward to meeting all of our new J.K. parents this evening!
On Monday, May 7th, Golden Learning Centre will join schools across Canada in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! Students from Kindergarten to Grade 8 will have the opportunity to view a live broadcast from the International Space Station, and sing along with Canadian astronaut and current Commander of the ISS, Colonel Chris Hadfield as he performs, “Is Somebody Singing”. As many of you know, Colonel Hadfield has gained a strong following amongst Canadians during his time on the International Space Station. He is a gifted individual – not only for his accomplishments in Science, but as well for talents in music, photography and poetry. He has taken spectacular photos of our country (and the world) during his 5 month placement in space. People across Canada have followed his time in space through his social media feed (facebook and twitter) and as well through several news agencies who have provided thorough coverage.
The song, “Is Somebody Singing” was the first recorded song from space and involved the Canadian music icons, Barenaked Ladies. Vocalist, Ed Robertson, collaborated with Colonel Hadfield to write the song, and the result – a poignant song about missing home. GLC students will be singing the chorus along with Colonel Hadfield (and thousands of other Canadian students) on Monday morning. We hope to you see you there as we join Colonel Hadfield in “Filling the Skies with Music”.
Our morning break will be adjusted (10:15 to 10:55) to account for the live broadcast. Students will then head to the gym for the 11:00 start time. Check out this video (with lyrics) to see the song being recorded, and to learn the chorus so you can sing along. As well, you can click here to see Colonel Hadfield’s facebook page and twitter feed. CBC news articles that highlight Colonel Hadfield’s work are here. We’re hoping to have all students bring a foil star (on a ruler) so we can create our own GLC version of space!
