Thank you to the Griffiths-Scott School family and the community of Millet! Our annual Christmas Giving project was another huge success. We raised $1300 and 383 pounds of food for the local Millet Food Bank. Thank you to everyone for their generous support.
Merry Christmas. See you in 2019!
A little Christmas magic happens every year at GSS on the day of our annual Christmas Dinner! We are so fortunate to have an amazing group of parent volunteers who prepare, cook and serve a delicious traditional turkey dinner to over 300 students and staff. As we look across the gym we see all of our GSS family gathered and enjoying a meal together. Thank you to our junior high helpers for setting up tables, chairs, decorating and cleaning up when the meal is over. An extra thank you goes out to our grade 8 students who helped out their Kindergarten and Grade One buddies get their plates to the tables safely! This GSS Christmas tradition holds a special place in our hearts and will long be remembered by students and staff.
