Our Christmas tree has been set up in the foyer and we are asking for your help in making the holidays better for children in a neighbouring school in Burnaby.
We encourage you to stop by and pick up a gift tag with a child’’s gender and age on it, for whom you can buy a gift. Please drop unwrapped gifts to the school office by Thursday, December 7. If you would prefer to offer a monetary donation, any donation over $25 is eligible for a tax receipt.
Thank you to Mrs.Cuthbert and her art group for decorating the tree and creating the gift tags!
Thank you to our Gilpin families for your generous support.
The students and staff had a great time celebrating Halloween.
Batman and Robin came to join in the fun!
Gilpin now has a Little Free Library.
Please feel free to take a book or share a book.
A big thank you to Gary for taking the time to build this wonderful library.
Outside recess and lunch are valuable opportunities for kids to get outside, get some exercise, burn off some energy and socialize with kids from other classes. Therefore I will be attempting to send the kids outside as much as possible, this includes light to moderate rain days.
Please have your child dress appropriately for the weather. A spare change of clothes in the backpack is always a good idea.
