  • 1) Last week at improv, we learned that Long Legs are Better, ee visited Rojina’s fancy towel factory, ee met a newly reinterpreted iron man, and we saw some vape-only interpretive dance. Join us today at lunch in the drama room for theatre games and improvised fun.

2) Charlito “Chip” Tolentino is a little league pitcher with a 22-mile-an-hour screw ball. And, as the champion of the 24th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, he’s the favourite to take home the prize this year. Unfortunately, a lot’s been changing for Chip this year. Everywhere he looks, pretty girls are distracting him from his spelling. Will he be able to overcome these distractions and take home the prize this year, or will Marigold Coneybear’s form-fitting sweater be his undoing? Find out next week at the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, a semi-improvised comedy musical right here at GHS next Friday night and Saturday afternoon.

From the Sports Desk:

Congratulations to Dalton Mackenzie and Cassidy and Madison Dunlop who have been selected as the athletes of the month for May.

Dalton was dedicated to his event for the entire track and field season.  He is a great embassador for Gravenhurst High School and represented our school with respect and pride.  Dalton is a “natural” when it comes to throwing the shot put.  He captured 1st place at the Northern Zone championship beating out 14 other schools for the win.

Dalton then went on to place 3rd at GBSSA and then ended up placing 9th at the OFSAA Central regional event; facing some tough competition in this event.  Even though he didn’t move on to the OFSAA finals, he is very excited about competition for next year.  The highlight of his competition was seeing Andre Degras at the event; Canada’s fastest runner.

Congratulations Dalton on a successful season.

Cassidy and Madison Dunlop are members of the Varsity soccer team.  The sisters work well together and encourage each other when the going gets tough. On the field, Cassidy and Maddy are firecrackers, making it first to the ball, working through tough scrums, and not backing down.  Though each athlete has her own particular characteristics, anyone watching a game would certainly see the similarities between these sisters.

Would Dalton, Cassidy and Madison please meet Mrs. Clarke at 11:30 by the gym for your photo.
