Gladys Speers Update April 3-7th 

Book Fair 

Thank you to Ms. Marchant and her team of Volunteers for hosting a very successful book fair. “A book is a magical thing that lets you travel to far-away places without ever leaving your chair” (Katrina Mayer). Thank you to the Gladys Speers community for supporting our book fair. 

Day of Pink 

We encourage all staff and students to join us on Wednesday, April 12, 2017 as we recognize the International Day of Pink. This is a day when communities across the world can unite to celebrate diversity and anti-bullying. Please be sure to wear pink, or your pink Gladys Speers “Cool to Care” t-shirt, if you have one.
