Announcements for Friday, April 17, 2015

Apr 17 2015

Good Morning Gardiner! 

Today is Friday, April 17th.

6th graders, today is a B day.

These are your morning announcements:

Now that the weather is warming up, we would like to make you aware that hats and hoods are not allowed at lunch recess outside at lunch. Thank you!


A reminder to all 6th and 7th graders, that your Forecasting Sheet is due to your Advisory teacher by today, Friday April 17th.


Do you still need to purchase a Gardiner Yearbook? Don't wait any longer! There are fewer yearbooks than students, so hurry and get yours before they are sold out! Bring $20 to the office before school starts to purchase yours. Hurry! They are selling fast!!!


If you have an overdue library book since February you will not be able to check out any additional items until your overdue books are returned or renewed.   Please return your overdue library books as soon as possible.  See Mrs. Fransen if you have any questions.


Today is National Day of Silence to bring awareness to the bullying and harassment that students who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender experience in our nation’s schools. Over the past week Gardiner’s GSA has collected over 200 pledges from students and staff. These people have pledged to show their support to end discrimination based on one’s gender or sexual orientation. Students and staff are choosing to be silent for part of or for the entire day. If you pledged, and have not received a Gardiner Day of Silence Sticker, please come to the cafeteria during Advisory. Also it is not to late to pledge. We will continue to take pledges during lunch as well as taking pictures with your own personal message about what this day means to you. Thank you for all of your support!

Give all medication to your classroom teacher.  ONE EXCEPTION - ASTHMA INHALERS - give the box with instructions/prescription to you teacher and the inhaler should be with the student, either in a pocket or daypack at Outdoor School.

Luggage:  All luggage needs to be sealed in a black plastic garbage bag, with duct tape and name tag (first and last name) on the outside of the bag and a few packed for the return trip.  Most students will have two large luggage items that will ride on a separate luggage truck - one bag for sleeping bag and pillow, the other bag for clothing/luggage.  DO NOT bring suitcases with wheels.  Students need to carry their own luggage to their cabins, so make sure they only bring what they can carry.  LOTS OF WARM, WATERPROOF CLOTHES as the weather at the coast is very unpredictable!  Remember not to pack any food.
