What’s Up @ SGA September 30-October 4?
Hope you enjoyed the weekend. I have sent out information regarding the Front Door Buzzer during the potential CUPE job action via recorded message to your phones. However, I am also attaching a copy for your convenience: Front Door Buzzer
I thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation in these matters.
We had a very successful Safety Awareness Week practicing a variety of drills. We will continue practicing Fire Drills and lock down drills throughout the year.
Here is a list of events taking place this week at SGA:
Monday, September 30th:
-Immunizations for Grade 7 Students
–Orange Shirt Day: Students are encouraged to wear an Orange Shirt to school today
Orange Shirt Day is commemorated across Canada every September 30th, to acknowledge the impact of the residential school system, raise awareness and honour Indigenous communities, and promote reconciliation.
Orange Shirt Day started in the spring of 2013, when a commemoration event was held in Williams Lake, BC to honour those who attended the St. Joseph Mission residential school. Orange Shirt Day was inspired by the experience and story of Phyllis (Jack) Webstad whose shiny new orange shirt was taken away from her on her first day of school at St. Joseph Mission. Her story and Orange Shirt Day is now used as an excellent opportunity to raise awareness and foster discussions about all aspects of residential schools.
Wednesday, October 2nd:

Thursday, October 3rd:
