Important Updates

Friday, November 26th - Weekly Parent Newsletter

Hello GDHS Families,

Next week marks the return to a four period day here at GDHS. Any change brings with it a list of benefits and challenges. We believe that a return to 75 minutes periods is beneficial for students and their achievement, and that this benefit far outweighs any challenges this change may bring. For the remainder of Semester One we will retain our common lunch. We will share a Semester 2 daily schedule towards the end of January. Here is our new daily schedule starting Monday:

Daily Schedule:

  • Announcements: 8:55 - 9:00

  • Period 1: 9:00 - 10:15

  • Period 2: 10:20 - 11:35

  • Lunch: 11:35 - 12:45

  • Period 3: 12:45 - 2:00

  • Period 4: 2:05 - 3:20

Holiday Giving:

As the holiday season approaches, our parent community has the opportunity to enhance the lives of some of our GDHS students experiencing difficult family or personal situations. This year, the need is greater than it ever has been.

With your support, our wish is to provide a number of Georgetown students with a gift basket to make this holiday special. If you would like to participate in this initiative, please consider a cash donation via School Cash Online and/or gift card donations. These donations will not only help to support our students in need this holiday season but can continue to help for the remainder of the school year and beyond.

Cash Donations:

  • Visit: https://hdsb.schoolcashonline.com

  • Choose: Items (top right corner)

  • Choose: “Make a Donation”

  • School: "Georgetown District High School"

  • Initiative: “Highest Need”

  • Message: Please indicate “Holiday Giving”

  • (A donation receipt will be sent to your email)

Gift Card Donations:

Gift cards can be dropped off at the school’s front door window until Wednesday, December 8th. No donation is too small! Gift Card suggestions:

  • Groceries: Real Canadian Superstore, Metro, Food Basics, Cobs, M&M Meat Shops, local shops

  • Restaurants: Tim Hortons, McDonalds, Subway, local restaurants

  • Gifts: Amazon, Walmart, Winners, Shoppers Drug Mart, local stores

The cash donations will be used to purchase toiletries and items for our students and the gift cards collected will be divided between the GDHS recipients.

Thank you so much for supporting our Georgetown families!
