June 2016 Council Meeting

2016-06-06 19:00

Update:

For those who have not heard through your son or daughter yet, we  wanted to let you know that our Principal, France Thibault, will be taking on the duties of a OCDSB Superintendent starting in September.  This is great news for the many students who will be in her area, however, we will miss her tremendously at Glebe Collegiate Institute.
At our meeting tomorrow, we'll have the opportunity to say goodbye to France and to say hello to our new Principal (starting September 2016), Steven Massey. Steven has plenty of relevant experience and I'm sure that he'll be a terrific addition to Glebe.
Do please feel free to join us tonight (June 6th) at our Council meeting to hear France's parting words and to say hello to Steven.

Please join us for the final School Council meeting of the 2015/2016 school year.  We'll celebrate exciting events & fundraisers that have taken place & events to look forward to in the next school year.
