WE HAVE GONE BEAR-CRAZY OVER OUR COOKIE DOUGH FUNDRAISER!!!

This year we will be selling cookie dough from QSP Tasty Batters as our school fundraiser.  We are offering 15 varieties of frozen cookie dough to choose from while supporting our school at the same time.   Cookie dough is available in pre-portioned and in tubs, has 0 grams of trans-fat and are low in sodium.  There are many great flavours available including a sugar-free cookie!  We hope that you and your student will contact family, friends, neighbours and work associates over the next two weeks and ask them to help us reach our goal of selling 700 tubs.  We thank you for your continued support in enhancing your child's education!!!   Students have the opportunity to earn collectable bear keychains with each tub of cookie dough sold.  Students will receive a lanyard and one bear for their first tub sold.  They will earn another bear for every other tub of cookie dough sold (1, 3, 5, 7.... etc.).

TO ORDER: Simply fill out the order form CAREFULLY and COMPLETELY and return along with payment to the school.  Additional order forms are available from the office.  NOTE:  Cookie dough is NOT available for purchase online, you must fill out the paper order form to place your order.

PAYMENT:  The correct cash amount, or cheques payable to GLADYS MCDONALD SCHOOL must accompany the orders.

DELIVERY:  It takes 3 weeks for delivery once we have sent in the orders.  A notice will be sent home to indicate which day and time to pick your order up.  Orders must be picked up at the school by the seller or family member of the seller on the day of delivery.  Orders cannot be picked up by individual customers.

Farewell to my GMS Family

The 2013-2014 School Year has been one to remember! Our students worked with heart and determination and as a result they made great strides toward their future! As I pass the 'torch of learning excellence' to Ms. McPherson, I do so with a full heart and full confidence that the culture at GMS will remain one to be celebrated. 

Kissing the Frog...well, now that it is all over I can say, IT WAS WORTH IT! If it made a difference in the motivation of even one student I would do it all over again! 

If you missed the moment, here is the Leaderpost Coverage: http://www.leaderpost.com/technology/Pucker+principal/9978625/story.html

 

All the best to the students, community and staff. Put Your BEST Into Every Day...No Excuses! 
I will forever believe in you!

 

 

 

"For the Love of Learning" Coffeehouse

What happens when families, students and staff come together?

SPARKS FLY

That is exactly what happened at GMS during our

"For the Love of Learning" Coffeehouse

Thanks to everyone who joined together for a night of learning celebration. The shared writing activities, writing displays, numeracy conversation area,

book swap, D5 rounds and the fine coffee, treats and jazz music were enjoyed by all!

We are convinced that we have the greatest, most supportive community!

WOW!! I am Beyond Proud of the GMS Students.

GMS TUBE was a true hit! I am sure I speak for all when I say it is a memory that will last a lifetime!

I want to once again thank our senior students...the stars of the show! Their hard work, witty humour, choreography, acting, singing, set design and impressive script writing abilities demostrated the multi-facted talent this group of students possess!   Here are a few highlights:
