Principal's Message

October Update

​Dear Parents/ Guardians,
We want to wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving with family this long weekend. Please note, there is no school for students this Friday or Thanksgiving Monday. We continue to be grateful for your support and for your childrens'ability to take up rich learning opportunities this year whether it be via the HUB or in person.
The staff of Griffith Woods is thankful for the opportunity to work together this Friday during our professional development day. We will be focusing on reviewing our past school development goals and setting new targets for this year. We will also be setting up our professional learning communities based on building our capacity as a staff and narrowing down on areas we see needing attention with respect to student growth.
Thank you for following absence protocols during this time. If your child will be absent, please let your child's homeroom teacher know and also call or email the office (griffithwoods@cbe.ab.ca). If your child will be absent for multiple days, please specify so we can record the absence correctly.
We wanted to let you know that all staff now have their Google classrooms set up. Should your child be ill or away for extended periods of time, please use the Google class as a resource to support ongoing learning and allow them to maintain learning with assigned tasks. If you need assistance in navigating this platform, please reach out to your child's teacher.
Congratulations to all Terry Fox runners and walkers. We ran a total of 4691.75km making it to Thunder Bay.  As a school so far, we have raised $1505.00 from our generous parent and staff community online. Way to Go Griffith Woods! To commemorate the 40th year Anniversary and honour Terry Fox, we continue to welcome any further online donations. If you wish to donate please click on our Griffith Woods link below.

A reminder that student fees are now uploaded to your My CBE /PowerSchool account. We thank you in advance for logging on and reviewing what is posted for payment. We have already been busy purchasing games and outdoor equipment to support opportunities for your children over the noon hour connected to the noon activity fee. G
With the cooler weather approaching now is the perfect time to buy a Griffith Woods toque!  Just send the attached order form with $20.00 and your child will be given a toque right away.
Watch for updates on Instagram, Twitter (GWGreyWolves) and our school website. It's a great way to see whole school activities, events and the amazing work being done within our school community.
