WELCOmE BACK GRADUATES OF 2021!
This letter is the first important bulletin for Grads… but there will be more information to come!
This year is like no other due to COVID and all the restrictions that it brings with it. Because of the strict Provincial Ministry health and safety guidelines, we cannot plan for any of the usual events and traditions that GESS has had in the past. Together with Grad Council this year, we will try our very best to bring our Grad Class together in innovative ways. It is especially crucial that all grads sign into our GESS Grad 2021 Google Classroom to stay informed on everything grad this year.
Login instructions: If you are new to George Elliot, please be sure that your school student "learn" accounts are activated as I will be using Google classroom for all grad communications. Please sign into classroom.google.com and join using the code: pttsidb.
Instructions if you are having troubles:
Parents' and guardians' login instructions:
This is a 2 credit course that will commence no sooner than October, with meeting times being TUESDAY MORNINGS at 7:30 AM. First meeting info will be posted in the GESS Grad 2021 Google Classroom so stay tuned. If you are interested in becoming an active member of this year's Grad Council, please see your counsellor to register or simply show up! If you want to drop by for the first meeting, just to get an idea of how Grad Council works, please join us.
Every year we elect a Grad President(s), who really becomes the key communicator/go to person(s) for the Grad Class. If you are interested in taking on this highly respected and visible role, please consider running for this position. We will have a one week period for campaigning, culminating with a short campaign speech video, followed by a VOTE. Stay tuned for dates and details.
