Early Closure Today – Friday, November 16th

The Public Schools Branch is closing schools today three hours early.  For Greenfield students, this means that the bell to dismiss students to the buses will ring at 11:40.

At 11:50, students who are being picked up or who are walking will be dismissed. We ask that parents who are coming to pick up students do not come into the school until the buses have left.  This ensures a manageable dismissal.

Parents should know that teachers will be sending students to the location that was provided on the “Early Dismissal” form that was sent home earlier in the year.  We ask that parents not call the school unless there is a change in this information for today.  As we have only two phone lines, it is very difficult to manage all incoming calls, so please don’t call unless it is necessary.

Our lunches from Greco will be arriving early today so that students who did order them will have them before they leave today. We will not do our milk orders today so parents will see a credit for that in HotLunches.

Service Dog to Begin Next Week

A service dog named Zito will begin at Greenfield School on Wednesday, November 14th.  He will be here to support one of our students with special needs.  Zito is an Autism Assistance Dog.

On Wednesday, November 17th, there will be an assembly for all students and staff to give information on service dogs.  A trainer from Lions Foundation of Canada will be here to instruct students on how they should conduct themselves when a service dog is present. There will be signs posted on our doors to let everyone know that there is a service dog in our building.

We are anticipating that the service dog will quickly blend into our school community.  We are looking forward to learning from this experience and to seeing the benefits he may bring to our student.

A letter was send home with our students today.

Caps Visit on Jersey Day!

Today is the start of our Gator Giving Days and it was “Jersey Day.”

We had special guests in our Breakfast Program today, helping out with the buttering of toast and the clean-up.  They were Austin Taylor, Daniel Thompson and Dominik Tmej of the Summerside Western Capitals.  The Caps are having a great year and they took the time to take tickets to all our students in their classrooms so they can go to one of their exciting games.

Here is a picture of our Caps visitors and their many Greenfield fans:

Go, Caps, Go!

Gator Giving Days!

Every year our Home and School Association joins with the St. Eleanor’s Lions Club to adopt a number of families for Christmas giving.  Our Halloween Dance, which was very successful, was the start of our fundraising for this very special effort by our Greenfield School Community.

Throughout November we have our Gator Giving Days on Wednesdays.  Students can participate in any of these days and, if they wish, they can bring a loonie or a toonie to  contribute our Christmas Hampers.

Here are the dates and the activities for November Wednesdays which will also be on our Google calendar:

Wednesday, November 7th – Favorite Jersey/Favorite Shirt Day
Wednesday, November 14th – Crazy Hair/Hat Day
Wednesday, November 21st – PJ Day
Wednesday, November 28th – Red and Green/Christmas Spirit Day

A notice will be going home on Monday with all the activities that will be taking place.  It is provided below. We know our parents will contribute and help out if they can. We are very proud of this fundraising effort and have always had a wonderful response from our community.
