The Term 3 Report Cards will be going out on Friday, April 20. Student Led 3-Way Conferences will be from 5-8 pm on Wed. April 25 and Thurs. April 26. There will be no school on Friday, April 27.
The 2012 Pink Day has been set for Wednesday, May 2nd. We are hoping that this year will be bigger and better. As a committee we would like to include the business community in our day’s activities. Last year we created a “chain for change” linking the High School and Elementary School together; this year we would like to extend that chain into the community. We are hoping that the community will jump on board and decorate their store fronts in Pink to help promote the schools initiative in promoting a safe environment. We will also be offering shirts to any business or individual that believes in our cause. We will be selling the “One Colour, One Purpose, One Community” T-Shirts for a minimum donation of $10. Proceeds from the T-Shirt sales will be used to provide more activities and guest speakers to our students to promote a safe and fun learning environment. If you are interested in being a part of this year’s Pink Day or would like to purchase a T-Shirt, please contact Mr. Birch at Gordon F. Kells. Thanks for your help in making Carlyle a safe community. (The committee members are Bryce Birch, Jeff Laforet, and Melissa Roy-Brown)
Track practices continue on Wednesdays after school.
Rookie and Junior badminton practices are Tuesdays and Thursdays after school. Exhibition games are scheduled with Manor and Arcola. Playoffs are set for May 1st and May 5th. Senior Badminton practices are on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Pre-district playoffs are April 20th in Arcola.
The Student Council continues to sell muffins and donuts ($1 each) during the first break of each day.
Miss Down and the California Easter Trip Crew had a great time on their trip over the break. Details about their experiences will be in next week’s Cougar Corner.
The Student Council is providing snacks for advisory groups once a week.
Local businesses can have a business-card size advertisement placed in the yearbook for $20 or they can sponsor a photo page for $30. Half-page and full-page advertisements are also available. If you are interested in placing an ad in the GFK yearbook please contact Melissa Sweet for details. The 2010-2011 yearbooks are still available. The cost is now $20. The 2011-2012 yearbooks are $25. If anyone has taken pictures of GFK students which might be of interest to the Yearbook Committee, please email them to Melissa Sweet at firstname.lastname@example.org so the pictures can be included in the 2011-2012 Yearbook. Currently the yearbook is looking for pictures from senior girls’ volleyball and drama.
