Gator Gab – Week at a Glance for Week #12 – Nov. 19th-23rd, 2018

Below is a peak at our week ahead followed by some important information items – have a wonderful week Gators!

Nov. 18th to Nov.24th is Anti-Bullying Week 

The PINK T-Shirt Anti-bullying Campaign started in Nova Scotia on September 18, 2007 by two students, David Shepherd and Travis Price, at Central Kings Rural High School. After watching a younger student be bullied for wearing a pink shirt, they decided to “Stand Up” and purchased many pink shirts to hand out and wear the next day … there actions and the positive message to Stand Up and say NO to bullying has grown and we GATORS are proud to support – get caught wearing PINK on our Wednesday School Spirit Day – Nov. 21st.

Does Your child Wear Glasses? New Research Study from University of Waterloo is looking for participants…

Please check out the poster advertisement from UW. The researcher has been vetted and approved by WCDSB. Please consider signing up if your child wears glasses and meets the requirements of the study.
