On June 6, 2016 Hands on Science will be coming to our school to present Mechanisms Using Electricity to our Grade 5 students. If you have a student in Grade 5, this would be a great opportunity to help with some hands on learning.
Those students who qualify for the Leduc Track Meet will be competing on May 30, 2016. All students that place in the top two in their category will move on to the Zone Meet in St. Albert on June 2, 2016. Since there are only a few students who will qualify busing will not be supplied. Parents will need to ensure their student gets to the Meet on time.

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.
