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?


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!
#feeling blessed


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:

The Gladys McDonald ACT Team hosted a very successful fundraiser. Our Bakesale brought in $268.00 which will be donated to the Red Cross to support their Respect Ed Anti-Bullying campaign. There were many Anti-Bullying lessons and critical conversations that took place throughout the week.

We are so proud of our students "Respectful Behaviours" on and off the playground. We will continue to focus on Respectful Behaviours online!


It is GO TIME!!

Meeting our Learning Improvement Plan goals means I will be puckering up to kiss a toad at our final assembly! EW!

Therefore, as we begin term 3 continue to light your learning on fire! Work to your best potential every day. Save excuses for those weak at heart and be the type of learner who strives for excellence at home and school every day! You are WORTH IT!

What should you do in Term 3?

1. Read with passion! Spread your love for books. While your reading ask yourself questions to help bring a deeper understanding of the text.

2. Plan for learning! Come to school ready, with a good sleep, a good breakfast and a great attitude.

3. Be open to learn new things and accept and embrace mistakes as being part of the process!

4.Ask a lot of questions; of yourself, your teachers, your parents and your peers.

5. Set Goals and work toward those every day!

Striving for Excellence...NO EXCUSES!

GMS STUDENTS...You have a whole team of adults who believe in you, care for you and are here to help you reach your best!
