Grizzly Family Update
January 18- January 22, 2021
Three Cheers for Glenburnie!!
Please know how much we appreciate everything that families are doing at home. It has been so heartwarming to see such great turn outs for our Google Meets and families and children embracing on-line learning. We know that it is not the same, and we are all hoping to be back in-person soon, but keep up the amazing work. You've got this!
If you ever run into problems throughout the day, don't hesitate to call Ms. Paquin at school for help.
Congratulations Dawn Diamond & Welcome Emily Stephen
We learned this week that Dawn Diamond has been promoted to Principal of Central P.S., Sydenham P.S., & Marysville P.S. This transition will take place on January 29th. We want to thank and recognize Dawn for being such a big part of the school community. The kindness, creativity and enthousiasm for learning that she has shared with us over the years will always be remembered. We wish her all the best in her new role. They are lucky to have her!
Although we are sad to say goodbye to Dawn, we are happy to welcome Emily Stephen into the role of Vice Principal of Joyceville P.S./Glenburnie P.S. Emily is moving from V.P of Bayridge P.S. and brings a wealth of experience and enthousiasm. We are excited to welcome her as part of the team.

Please support our on-going gift card fundraiser that you are able to participate in on your own time, all year round.
Check out www.fundscrip.com and see all of the great gift cards that are offered. There are over 170 retailers from popular department stores to gas stations to restaurants and each month new promotions are offered. This fundraiser is great way to help our school raise money. Over the last year, with a very small number of families ordering we have raised over $500!
The only cost to you is the shipping. The gift cards can be shipped directly to you by lettermail for $1.04. This option is for up to 4 cards or up to a $500 value. The cards will be 2 to 7 business days in transit. They can also be sent Xpresspost (with no limits) at an increased cost.
Our school code is H4GP2Q.
