Welcome to Senator Gibson Public School

Dear Senator Gibson families,

 Spring has finally sprung! We are all thankful for these warmer, sunnier daysJ The next couple of months are busy ones for sure with lots of great things happening for our students. We all enjoyed our Track and Field meet on May 2nd for our students in Grades 4-8. A reminder that our Grade 3 students will also be participating, however they will complete their events during their scheduled gym classes with Mr. Hogg and Mr. Gooderham. Students who qualify will be invited to participate in the Area Track and Field Meet on May 15th. Good luck Gators!

We are also very excited about our upcoming Talent Show! We are looking forward to sharing some amazing talent from our very own at Senator Gibson students. We invite you to come and join us at 1:15PM or 6PM on Tuesday, May 8th.

A reminder about our upcoming Vendor Fair on May 12th. Our Parent Council has been working hard to prepare for this day – please share with friends and family – it promises to be a fun filled day! Proceeds will be supporting technology upgrades in our Learning Commons and classrooms.

As always, we thank you for your continued support in helping to make Senator Gibson a great place to learn and grow!


Mr. S. Hancox & Mrs. K. Phillips

Important Message About Anaphylaxis:

There are students who attend our school that suffer from anaphylaxis.  Anaphylaxis is an allergic reaction that affects 2 or more organs, so severe that in some cases it can be life threatening. Its onset is so swift that from time of exposure to death can be as short as 15 minutes.

We have children with severe allergies to peanuts, nuts and nut products, shellfish, bananas and eggs. Just touching or smelling one of these allergens can cause a life threatening anaphylactic reaction for students at our school. Prevention is the best approach!  We ask your cooperation in using discretion when sending food to the school.  We also request that you speak to your child about these allergies and about the importance of washing their hands with soap and warm water.

As a staff, in accordance with the parents of these students, we have developed a plan to deal with this situation.  We know that if we work together, we can help to create a safe learning environment for all of our students.  If you have any questions about this request or about anaphylaxis, please call the school office.

On behalf of these students, their parents, and the Senator Gibson Public School staff, we thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
