BINGO Family Fun Night was a Huge Success!

Thank you to all of our students and families who attended our 1st Annual BINGO Night on Friday, February 27th.  It was amazing to see so many people show up to support our school!  We had a really great night filled with fun, food and prizes.  Special thanks to Heidi Talukdar and Jennifer Moffet for their leadership in organizing the event.  As well, thanks to the BINGO organizing committee:

Janelle Wood, Paula Hillier, Pauline Wilts, Gillian Martin, Alysha Burrows, Jennifer Moffett, Melynda Kennedy, Julie Dow, Kerry Mellor, Annette Newton and Leanne Mason.

We also can’t forget about all of our student helpers who did an outstanding job in helping set-up, selling snacks and pizza, clearing cards, selling BINGO cards, displaying the BINGO numbers and greeting people.  Great Job! 

We also had a number of community partners donate gifts and funds to sponsor the event.

Pink Shirt Day:

Pink Shirt Day and Student of the Month Assembly What great participation and enthusiasm for our Pink Shirt Day and Assemblies! February 25th saw a sea of pink at Gibson and February 26th showcased amazing creativity and hard work as students shared songs, poems, art work and stories about acceptance and tolerance. We had so many classes volunteer to share their thoughts and ideas at the assembly that we ran out of time. Not to worry, this means more great presentations will be shared during our April Student of the Month Assemblies!
