Welcome to GBCS 2016- 2017!!   We are so excited about the school year!  Please see the icon " school news" for the Elementary Newsletter.  

Tuesday September 6, 2016
LINK CREW day for Grade 9’s.  Grade 10- 12 students begin on Wednesday September 7th.
Elementary students we are so excited to welcome you to our new school !! We have a wonderful and dedicated staff who have worked all summer to make this transition smooth.  A big thank you to our Office Professionals, Custodians and teachers for all of their hard work.
First Day
All students will make their way to the playground, which is the field where the track is located.  There is a new gate that has been put in at St. Vincent St. and Aiken St.  This is where there will be a crossing guard in the morning for students to enter the yard. As a reminder there is no one on duty until 8:35AM in the yard.  No students should enter the building in the morning.  There will be staff on duty to assist students in getting to the yard. All teaching staff will be available in the yard and will be able to tell your child which class they will be in.  When the bell rings at 8:55AM all students will cross the road, with the crossing guard back into the school.  All students will head into the cafeteria together for introductions and welcomes.  Parents are welcome to join us.  When students are heading to their classes we ask that parents do not go with them and exit through the main doors of the building next to the cafeteria.  

Busing
All buses will now come to the main entrance of the building.  Parents are asked not to enter the driveway closest to the doors as buses will be using this space both before and after school.  Please enter and park at the east side of the school.  


If you wish to make contact with a teacher or administration - please feel free to call the school or send an email.  Communicating with our parent community is very important and encourages success for all of our students.

Please be sure to sign up for Flash Alerts which will go out on Fridays to keep you aware of upcoming activities.

This is also a reminder that we are working to have all payments made online this year at GBCS.  For safety and efficiency reasons, BWDSB would like to reduce the amount of Cash & Cheques coming into our school.  Please join the many parents that have already registered and are enjoying the convenience of paying ONLINE!

There are a number of resources available to students, parents and caregivers that I will list here for you to have easy access.  They are an excellent way to ensure that people are well equipped to deal with any issues that come there way.  Please feel free to contact the school as well for assistance.
