Dear parents,

Please find below the  Crawford Lake Permission Form  The Crawford Lake field trip is scheduled for Grades 4-8 on Tuesday February 19. The students will be participating in a 1.5 hour snowshoe program, from 10am-11:30am. As part of the permission form, please sign off, complete and return the attached Appendix 1B Special Winter Excursion form to your teacher, which can also be found on the permission form link. Note that helmets are not required for snowshoe activities. Students must dress warmly for the weather, as the snowshoeing program is a rain or shine event.

Kind regards,

Dear parents,

Next week is our annual Diversity Week @ GAA!  

The Diversity Council has lots of fun activities planned for next week to help us celebrate our different cultures, religions and families!

On Tuesday January 15, we are hosting a Fashion Show at Opening!  Students who wish to participate in the Fashion Show may wear traditional dress, the colours of the flag of their family’s heritage or culture or an outfit that represents their family’s traditions or customs.  Students must sign up to participate by Friday January 11th.  They will need a description of their outfit at the time of sign up.  We are looking forward learning about our GAA families.

If students do not wish to participate in the Fashion Show, they can still wear clothes of specific to their cultural heritage.

On Friday January 18, back by popular demand is the International Food Market.  Much like a bake sale, families volunteer to bring in a traditional food or drink sample from a country of their choice and for a small cost, students can purchase foods from all over the world, with all proceeds going to charity.  

When preparing your contribution to the International Food Market, please remember that GAA is a peanut and nut free school.  All contributions can be dropped off in the Kindie Hall before Opening Assembly on Friday January 18th.  Please make sure that your contribution is clearly labelled with the name of your dish. Students can bring in their loonies and toonies on Friday for when they visit the market!

If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Grovum.
