Dear Glen Cairn PS Families,
As the end of June approaches, things are as busy as ever here at GCPS. This past week several of our athletes competed at the Board-Wide Track and Field event held at the Terry Fox Athletics’ Centre. Congratulations to all athletes who represented Glen Cairn. I am so proud of you all. Congratulations to Angel J who won gold in the girls’ 800 m race and to Angel, Ryann, Alexis and , who won silver in the girls’ 4 x 100 m relay. Way to go! Thank you to our parent volunteers and to Mme. Spear.
We also had our student-organized Talent Show on Thursday of this week. So many of our students shared their talents with us – dancing, singing, playing instruments, and reciting poetry. Thank you to Sarah M, Maryam O and Yuka for organizing the event and to Mr. Maloley for supervising countless hours of try outs and rehearsals.
There is a lot on the horizon to which I would like to draw your attention. Next Tuesday evening is our Spring Concert. Come join us from 7 – 9 pm in the gym for band and choir performances, as well as some of our acts from the talent show. There will be a bake sale to benefit the Brick by Brick campaign.
On Wednesday of next week, the Scientists in Schools program will spend the day at Glen Cairn PS. Thank you to Mrs. Robertson for organizing this and to the School Council for funding this excellent learning opportunity.
Thursday, June 19th is our feeder school visit day. We welcome our incoming students for a day of activities, including “Intermediate Life 101″. Our current students will act as mentors to our incoming students.
On Friday, June 20th, our annual picnic will begin at 12:00 noon. You are welcome to join us if you would like. Our theme this year is cottage games – bocce, badminton, croquet, and others. The school council is providing pizza for students and the BBB group will be selling freezies. Students should bring a snack to compliment the pizza.
Have a wonderful weekend!
