Adopt a Book Program

Annual “Adopt a Book” Program

being held on Thursday, December 1, 2016

(Parent-Teacher night)

Attention: Parents & Alumni – Important notice from the Gonzaga High School Library

During our Parent-Teacher Interviews on Thursday, December 1, 2016 from 1:30-7:00pm, we are offering you the opportunity to purchase a book for the school through our annual “Adopt-A Book” program. A variety of suitable literature will be displayed in the lobby and you are invited to purchase a book, in your child’s name, for the Gonzaga Library. The book will have your child’s name placed inside the cover as a remembrance of their “adopted book”. Many resources will be available for you to choose from.

 

Such support will enhance instruction through class research projects and effective use of media resources.

 

The Gonzaga Library plays an important role in assisting our students to reach their full potential as independent learners. The wide variety of materials and equipment in the Library act as an extension of the classroom as they lend support to all areas of the curriculum.

 

*** Tax deductible receipts will be issued in January 2017 for all donations over $20.00 that are received.  If you forget your cheque book that night – we will gladly follow-up with you!

 

Thanks for your support!

Safe Grad Meeting

There will be a safe grad meeting for parents interested in serving on one of the Safe Grad committees this year at seven pm at Gonzaga on Wednesday, November 30.  We are interested in having parents from all grade levels working with us.  If you are unable to take a role at the committee level, but are able to volunteer on the evening of Safe Grad (May 26), we will be seeking help later on in the spring for parents to assist on the night of the Safe Grad itself.

Hope to see you then!

Math League

Congratulations to Kelcie Furlong, Brooke Riggs, Mitchell Clowe and Andrew Dawson, our Gonzaga Math team who won the second NLESD metro math league competition on Thursday, November 17!

After school student supervision

As a reminder, students are not permitted to be in the school after 3:30 unless they are participating in a co-curricular activity and are under the direct supervision of a teacher. We cannot allow students to be unsupervised in the building after hours. Please arrange for transportation for your student prior to 3:30 in the afternoon.

Thank you.

November Reports

Report cards will be sent home on the afternoon of Thursday, November 24 and conferences will be held from 1:30-7:00 on Thursday, December 1. Students will be dismissed at lunchtime on December 1. The conferences will not be scheduled by appointment in order to accommodate as many parents as possible. Teachers will be located in their classrooms and parents are invited to stop by. Please be aware of the time and if should you require a longer time, you may wish to contact the individual teacher in question.  Parking can often be an issue so you may want to factor in some extra time for your planned arrival.

Friday, December 2 will be a closeout day. Regular classes will resume on Monday, December 5.
