Gilmore staff would like to wish you and your family a happy and relaxing Spring Break. The last day of classes is Friday, March 15th. Classes resume on Monday, April 1st. Enjoy the time off, and we’ll see you in April!
As you may be aware some of our Leadership students started collecting money from selling the secret valentines. All of that money is being donated to a Burnaby outreach centre and women’s shelter. We are working with a foundation called IAK, which stands for Intentional Acts of Kindness. From the money that we raised they are also matching that amount. All of this money will go to purchasing items for families in need, such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, diapers, towels, warm clothing, food, and other household essentials.
Please enjoy the following videos documenting the Leadership group’s fantastic work:
A reminder: We are once again asking parents and staff to share their memorable photos of Gilmore students. We have received this year’s web link for parents and staff who wish to share their photos with the yearbook committee: http://www.hjeshare.com/eShare/?code=Gilmore2019 This link is for uploading photos from computers. For those who wish to upload their photos directly from their smart phones, simply go to the mobile App Store and search for hj eshare app, herff jones, or eshare. Install the hj eshare app. Once installed, the app will ask for a School Code. The code is Gilmore2019. Instructions on using the mobile app can be found here.
We ask that parents please submit photos containing more than one subject. Please ensure that photos taken are on school grounds or on class field trips only. Please do not include children who do not attend Gilmore Community School. Photo submission will go through a selection process by the committee. Thanks for your assistance!
With winter weather here, we want to remind you about how the Burnaby School District shares weather-related school closures.
All schools will remain OPEN, unless there is heavy snowfall, damage or other circumstances – such as a power outage – that make it impossible to operate safely. The District will do its best to communicate school or district-wide closures on our website by 6:30 am. However, please keep in mind that there may be situations where this is not possible – again, such as a power outage.
Another way to learn about school closures is on local radio and TV stations, some of which are:
- CBC AM 690 radio
- News AM 1130 radio
- CKNW AM 980 radio
- Fairchild AM 1470 radio
- Global TV
- CBC TV
- CTV BC
Our priority is always the safety of students and staff; student safety is a responsibility we share with families. Please walk your child to the door of the school if you are unsure whether or not the school is open. If for any reason you feel that your student cannot travel safely to school then please – as you normally would – notify the school that your child will be absent.
Thank you for working with us to keep our school community safe.
