Happy 75th Birthday Smokey the Bear!
August 2019 marks the 75th anniversary of Smokey the Bear's role in wildfire education across North America. Yukon Wildland Fire Management and Grey Mountain Primary School are partnering to celebrate this milestone.
On Wednesday, August 28th Students will take part in activities designed to educate them about wildland fire safety. At 2:30pm we are inviting our school community partners to join us in singing Happy Birthday to Smokey the Bear and to help us celebrate our learning.
School Supplies and Student Fees 2019-2020 School Year
The school will be purchasing school supplies for the 2019-2020 school year.
The price will be:
$70 Grades 1 – 3
The student fee will be used to cover school supplies and special events such as field trips and transportation.
In addition to the student fee, we are asking parents/guardians that your child has:
A water bottle (for inside the classroom)
Inside shoes (non-marking that the child can do up on their own – Velcro if necessary)
*NOTE: Shoes must provide ankle support suitable for gym activities. Sandals are not recommended. *
A backpack (large enough to hold their lunch, snack, and a library book that goes back and forth once a week)
A large shirt for painting
In addition, Kindergarten and Grade 1 students should have a complete change of clothes for the inevitable spills.
Please ensure shoes, backpacks, lunch kits, and jackets are labelled with the child’s name.
Payment can be made at the beginning of the school year in August. Cash or cheques made out to Grey Mountain Primary School are accepted. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us at 667-5189.
