Yearbook: Hey GSS! The yearbook staff is looking for info on you to fill this year's edition of our Yearbook! As of today, you can go to the GSS website and click on the banner "Yearbook Info Blitz" to upload a photo of yourself, a creative piece (like a poem or painting), or any significant accomplishment you may want recognized by your peers. As you know by now, we have had to deal with the cancelation of many events, clubs, and sports, so this info blitz will be very important in making sure this year's book is another success. If you have any questions, feel free to email Mr. McMath for further details. We look forward to your contributions! Let's show some Eagle Pride!
Student Council: Did you know that Coca-Cola is the reason we know of Santa as a jolly old man? He was originally a lot scarier, but his image was redesigned for Coca-Cola holiday advertisements! On behalf of Student Council, we would like to wish all of our students a healthy and happy holiday season, a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year! Stay tuned for more events coming up in 2021!
From Student Council: Kwanza is an annual celebration of African-American culture, held from December 26th to January 1st. It has been adopted around the world including in Canada to celebrate African family, community and culture. The holiday was established to affirm African-American culture and unite Black communities after the devastating race riots in the Watts area of Los Angeles in 1965. A Kinara (or candle holder) comprises seven candles for the seven days of Kwanzaa; three red, three green and a black candle to represent the colours of the Pan-African flag symbolizing unity among African people.
