Science Fair at Greenfield!

Greenfield students will be participating in the Science Fair this year.  We are encouraging all of our students in Grades 4-6 to participate! 

The Greenfield Science Fair will take place on March 10th, which is only 8 weeks away!  Students who win will have their names submitted for the Provincial Science Fair which is on Wednesday, April 1st.  Our homeroom teachers will be talking about the Science Fair with students this week and providing information on this, although projects are to be done at home as an independent activity.  Students can work on their own or with a partner of the same grade.

For ideas and guidelines, you can visit www.peisciencefair.ca  or www.sciencebuddies.org

Support for a Greenfield Family

Many in our Greenfield community would know the Kingyens family. Their oldest son Nate is a student at Greenfield.  The Kingyens’ younger son, Camden, was diagnosed with a serious illness just before Christmas.  Camden is at the IWK  for treatment and will have to travel to Toronto for further medical intervention.  Our thoughts and prayers are with this family as Camden receives medical treatments he needs.

We know that our Greenfield families and staff want to support the Kingyens and provide whatever help they can.  We will be having a number of “special days” to fundraise for the family.  On Fridays for the next few weeks we will have a special activity/event and  students can bring in whatever change or dollars they wish.  We know that our Greenfield community will do what they can.

Friday, January 17th – “Cuddles for Camden” – Students can bring a favorite stuffed toy to school.

Friday, January 24th – “PJ’s and Bring Your Favorite Book” – For Family Literacy Day with a “Read a Thon.”

Friday, January 31st – “Jersey Day” – Wear a jersey and enjoy some extra play time.

Friday, February 7th – “Blue and Orange Day” – Wear Camden’s favorite colours!

Friday, February 14th – Red and White Day” – It’s Valentine’s Day and we are going to sock hop/dance!

Thank for supporting for this brave little boy and his family.

Merry Christmas!

We have had a great week here at Greenfield!  The movie and the Caps game were great fun for all our students and staff.  They were wonderful activities before our Christmas Break.

We want to thank our Breakfast Program for the Holiday Breakfast today.  Kim Gaudet and Crystal O’Keefe did a great job of planning and preparing this treat for our students with the help of our ‘always’ wonderful’ Breakfast Program volunteers.

Thank you as well to all parents, grandparents and other community members for your support for our Greenfield  Christmas Hampers. Whether you sent in toonies or loonies for our Gator Giving Days, baked or bought at our bake sale, bought Candy Cane O Grams, supported our Halloween Dance, bought Christmas gifts,  you contributed to our fantastic effort in making a wonderful Christmas for fifteen families.  A special thank you to Bernie Gallant and Jack Praught of the St. Eleanor’s Lions Club for their help and encouragement.

Some reminders:

  1. First day back after the holidays is Monday, January 6th.  It will be Day 2 on our schedule.
  2. The December HotLunches menu is now open.  It will close on Sunday, January 5th at midnight so parents might like to get orders in as soon as they can.

The staff at Greenfield wish all out students and their families a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
