Talent Show - The grade 3-5 talent show is this Tuesday from 1-2:30 in the gym. If your child is taking part and has music for this, we need this either as a link, on a stick or CD. Mr. Slack is organizing the order and music on Monday.

Friday Dismissal - the last day of school is a half day. We are dismissing at 11:30 am
Class Lists 2017 - teachers are now compiling class lists but they will not be completed for a few more days. As this can change very quickly depending on a variety of factors, we hesitate to give out information. However, if your child will have much  anxiety around this, please let us know and we will see if we can assist.  
Final Comments- Thank you to all our families for your support this year. We look forward to more Creeker learning and growing in the coming year.  It has been a priviledge to be part of this amazing community!

School Memo - Friday, June 9th, 2017

Memo to Garden Creek Parents and Guardians

 Friday, June 9th, 2017 

Good afternoon, Creeker Families,


We are into our last 2 weeks! Students will be finishing up assessments, on field trips and enjoying various presentations. 


New Learning : This coming week, we are  setting up classes with  Numeracy website trials that you can use over the summer so that your child continues to sharpen his/her skills.This website is called Reflex Math. It is a program that takes students from their current level of achievement in Numeracy ( particularly operations) and helps them progress in their learning while still keeping them engaged in a fun way. More to come on this.


Fredericton Run Jump Throw -  For anybody who was planning on taking part in this ( a note may have been given out at the Track and Field meets) it is now happening this weekend at Nassis Middle rather than FHS.


School Picnic - A reminder of this fun event taking place on the 20th from 11:40 - 12:40. RED AND WHITE is the theme, to celebrate Canada 150! ;)  Please send in your order forms.


Talent Show - Some grade 3-5 students will be taking part in a talent show on the 20th after the picnic. We have a large number of acts so we will begin at 1, take a short break for the K-2s to leave and then continue on with the show! What confidence and enthusiasm our students are displaying!! If your child is taking part, perhaps you can work a bit with them between now and then.

Garden Creek Picnic - Tuesday June 20th

150 Canada.jpg    WISH TO INVITE YOU!

                  Garden Creek School BBQ Picnic


Dear Creeker Families,
Please come and join us for our annual Garden Creek School BBQ Picnic, which will be held on Tuesday, June 20th from 11:40 am 12:40 pm. 
For those new to Garden Creek School, this event serves as a wonderful opportunity for families and staff to gather as a school community to
the many achievements of another terrific school year.  With BBQs billowing and Creekers mingling across the GCS grounds, this is always a great
time for students and families.  This year, we are inviting everyone to celebrate Canadas 150th anniversary as part of Canada 150 celebrations. 
 Canadian apparel, colours, and flags are welcome at the picnic!
Items being sold at the picnic include: barbequed hotdogs, water, apple juice, orange juice, and Mr. Freezie ice pops.  Hotdogs and refreshments
 must be ordered in advance with your childs homeroom teacher.  Each item is available for purchase at a cost of $0.50.  For each item ordered, you will
 receive one ticket.  Please ensure you order enough tickets for your family.  Tickets will be distributed to students (families) just before the beginning of the
 picnic.  Please take special note that all items MUST be ordered in advance, as tickets will not be available on the day of the BBQ.  Brown bag lunches
are welcome and we kindly invite families to pack their own lunch in lieu of sale items. 
Families are encouraged to bring a lawn chair, beach blanket, sunscreen, or any other items that would make your family comfortable during the picnic. 
The picnic is a rain or shine event.  In the event of rain, families will be invited to meet in their childs respective classroom for lunch.
We ask that you please arrange an outdoor meeting spot with your child and note that students will be dismissed from their classroom at 11:40 am. 
 Kindergarten families are invited to meet their child in their classroom before heading outside for the picnic.
We look forward to celebrating Canada 150 and picnicking with many of you on June 20th,
Garden Creek School Staff J
