From the Principal’s Desk ~October 2-6
It is hard to believe that the month of September has come and gone! The temperature in our building is more pleasant and our students are experiencing amazing learning opportunities both in the classroom and in the community.
We were also very thankful to have a number of parents come out to our first School Council meeting! Council is already mapping out exciting events for the year ahead. If you
are interested please join us on the first Wednesday of the month at 6:30 pm in the Learning Commons/Library. Our October Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, October 4th.
On Friday, September 22nd our students participated in the Terry Fox School Run for cancer research! Thank you to all who donated to this cause. There is still time to donate! Donate online now at our fundraising page at: http://www.terryfox.ca/VictoryPSGuelph
Together we can make a lasting difference!
