From the Office

Season’s Greetings! 

The festive season is upon us and the excitement is building at Gwynne. On behalf of everyone at Gwynne School, we wish you a safe and relaxing holiday and a Happy New Year.  It is at this time of year that we reflect on what a wonderful learning community we have. Thank you to all parents and guardians that attended parent teacher interviews in November. This communication will serve both student and teacher well for the remainder of the academic year.  Gwynne is extremely fortunate to have such hard working and dedicated staff members. We are also blessed with very committed parents, who work alongside of us in providing the best possible educational experience for our children. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for helping to make Gwynne School a wonderful place to be!

A reminder to please make sure that your child is dressed properly for the weather.  Extra clothing, toques, and gloves are always a good idea during the wet and snowy months. December is a very exciting yet busy month at the school.  Our students are hard at work preparing for the Christmas concert; our concert is planned for Thursday, December 18th at 7:00 pm.  Weather permitting we will be celebrating our last afternoon together with sleigh rides complete with a bon fire, hot chocolate and cookies.  We will be having a food hamper drive  at the Christmas Concert, please  bring donations that we will forward to the Wetaskiwin Food Bank.  We look forward to seeing everyone there! 

Happy Holidays and enjoy your family time!

Mr. DeMone
