Be a Buddy Not a Bully
On February 22, 2017 we encourage everyone to wear something pink to show that we are all working together to prevent bullying in our schools, in our communities and online. Pink Shirt Day comes from two Nova Scotia high school students who decided to take a stand against bullying in their own school.
The original event was organized by David Shepherd and Travis Price of Berwick, Nova Scotia who in 2007 bought and distributed 50 pink shirts after male ninth grade student Jadrien Cota was bullied for wearing a pink shirt during the first day of school.

Learning Commons - What Is It.?
Has your child mentioned "Learning Commons" at home? If so they are referring to the learning environment in the Library that is new this year at GSMS. Mrs. Killen and Mrs. Coleman spend part of their teaching time each day in the Learning Commons. Students work individually or in small groups with the support of the Learning Commons teacher in coordination with their classroom teacher. It is an alternate learning space and is supportive of a variety of students needs. If you have questions or would like more information about Learning Commons please speak to your child's teacher of Mrs. Coleman.
