Heritage Fair – Please Vote!

The Provincial Heritage Fair was held in May and our Greenfield students had wonderful results.

Bree McAlduff received an Honorable Mention with the finalists.

Rhiannon Carpenter received the P.E.I. Scottish Historical Society Award for Scottish Heritage.

Lauren Johnston was awarded the P.E.I. Federation of Agriculture Award for Agricultural History.

Ashlyn Meisner received the Aboriginal Affairs Secretariat Award and the P.E.I. Teachers Federation Award for History of Education.

We had two Heritage Fair Finalists: Ashlyn Meisner and Lauren Johnston.  This means that they were in the Top 10 and had to create a video that will be voted on to see if they go to the National Heritage Fair in Ottawa in the fall.

Ashlyn and Lauren did create wonderful videos and they need voters!  We are hoping that our Greenfield community will get behind them and take the time to see their videos and vote.  Here are the links:

Voting ends on July 7th!

School Supply Fees for 2017-2018

It is now that time of year when we begin collecting school supply fees for the coming school year.  A notice has gone home today with all students.  The cost is $40.00 per student.

The school supply fees can be paid by sending it in with your son or daughter, dropping by the school office to pay, or by going online to greenfield.hotunches.net.  A schedule has been set up in HotLunches.  We will be sure to see that receipts are sent home so please check for them.

We would appreciate it greatly if parents would pay the fee by June 23rd as teachers will be purchasing supplies over the summer. If you have any questions, please call the School Office.

A Delightful Spring Concert!

It took much singing in the rain, walking on sunshine, and wondering about where the wind goes, but they got it done! Those tulips finally made an appearance.

A great job, students, and a BIG thank you to Mrs. M-G and her helpers

2nd Annual Stuffy Day

Thank you to all our students, parents and staff who participated in and contributed to our Stuffy Day in memory of Nathan Costain.  It was a wonderful day and a great success. We raised $430.00 for the P.E.I. Special Olympics.

Students in Grade 6A and 6B took a moment to remember Nathan, placing their stuffies around the tree that was planted in his memory.
