Hello GK Families,

September is Terry Fox month and as many of you are aware we host a Terry Fox run annually.  Our run this year will be on Friday, September, 29th in the PM with a rain date of Monday, October, 2nd.  Please mark your calendars. More information will follow.

In preparation for this event, this year we are excited to announce that we will be selling t-shirts in support of this event.  Details can be found on the attached order form.  Orders are due by FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15th.  THIS Friday.  We are sorry for the quick turn around, but we need to ensure that the shirts arrive in time for our run.

If you are interested in ordering, kindly order via School Cash Online, or print the order form off and send in exact change and/or a cheque made payable to George Kennedy P.S.

We understand there are a lot of fundraising initiatives throughout the year, and appreciate that you may not be in the position to financially participate.  ALL STUDENTS will participate in our event regardless if they make a donation or purchase a t-shirt.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Hello GK Families,

This letter is to inform you that Halton District School Board offers School Cash Online as the most convenient method of payment for all school fees, including everything from field trips to milk sales, food days, and other fundraisers.

School Cash Online helps parents and community members pay school-related fees safely, quickly and easily. By using School Cash Online, you help increase efficiency and security at schools by making payments directly into your school’s bank account. This allows teachers and secretaries to focus on helping students, and not counting cash. Plus, you get to stay informed of your child’s activities and needs through email notices and reminders! 

The following link is a video to help parents with the registration process for School Cash Online.

August Update

Dear George Kennedy Families,


We hope you are enjoying your summer and finding time for family.


Here at George Kennedy P.S.  we are busy getting ready to welcome back our current students and our new ones as well.


Renovations are well underway, and for those of you not aware, they are installing air conditioning on the second floor and brand new student washrooms. The air conditioning will likely be operational by spring when the weather warms up. We are really looking forward to these upgrades!


Normally at this time of year, we are able to meet with parents for transition meetings/visits, medical peril and other concerns. However, due to the renovations, access to the building has been limited to workers and office staff only. This means that teaching staff are not able to come in as early as they would like to get classrooms ready. Students may be helping to create their classroom environment as we go through start up.


These renovations impact our students with IEPs or other special needs. Due to the renovations we cannot hold our visits for students as hoped. SERTs will contact those families early in the year to connect around transition planning. If this changes, we will contact those families with invitations, but for now, we have to adhere to the safety regulations.


For those students with medical concerns, we will arrange appointments or electronic receipt of paperwork, so we would ask that you call our office to make arrangements. Please note, new medical forms have been sent out separately and will be sent again in a synervoice.


We apologize for the inconvenience but are happily awaiting the new washrooms and air conditioning here at George Kennedy P.S.!
