Georges Vanier School Prayer
Lord, in the morning as we start this day,
We take a moment to bow and pray.
We start with thanks,
For all your kind and loving ways.
And now as we begin our day,
Watch over us as we work and play.
We ask you to help us respect and love one another,
And all we meet during the day.
Hold our families and school staff in your hands,
As we follow, in your commands.
Teach us to love you more than before,
Through random acts of love and kindness.
Guide us to be like Georges Vanier,
And make aVISIT
difference by
Helping the poor, the needy, the sick and the homeless.
We ask this through Jesus, Our Lord.

Kiss’N’Ride Reminder: PLEASE do not park in the Kiss’N’Ride lane (morning or afternoon). If you need to leave your vehicle for any reason, please
find a parking spot at the side of the building. (Parking Lot). Children’s safety is a priority at all times while on school property. Thank you for your
assistance. PEEL POLICE as well as By-law Enforcement Officers have dropped in and will be patrolling and enforcing by-laws with reference to
parking illegally. Please do not park and/or leave your vehicle in Kiss’N’Ride at ANYTIME!
VIOLATERS will be ticketed
Now that much colder weather is upon us, we respectfully remind you to ensure that your children come to school dressed
warmly to participate in recess activities. When weather conditions are severe, we may reduce the outdoor playtime, or have
indoor recess entirely. Fresh air and exercise are vital components for successful learning, so we will endeavour to have children play outside
whenever possible. Help your children come to school appropriately dressed with scarves, hats and mittens on those really chilly days!
For health and safety reasons and to help keep the school safe and clean, we ask all students to have indoor shoes.
Thank you for your support in this matter.
