We are running a Vancouver Food Bank Drive from Dec 2nd to Dec 20th at General Gordon.
Please bring non- perishable food items to the boxes located in the lobby or to your child's classroom. If you wish to donate financially cheques may be made out to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society and left in the office.
Thank you for making a difference to your community.
PAC is pleased to offer premium 6.5" poinsettias in three traditional colours — red, pink or white — for $12 each.
Order deadline is DECEMBER 4TH. Your poinsettia(s) will arrive at the school on December 12th
Many of the teachers will be opening up their classrooms from 1:15 to 2:30pm on Dec 6th, so students may share their learning. Many classes are working on science projects, but there are many other areas in which to see the learning that your children are doing in their classrooms.

We are now accepting applications for next year for students entering the English program in grades K through 7 who live in Gordon’s catchment. For priority consideration in-catchment students are requested to apply before January 31.
NOTE: For the years 2014-2016: General Gordon students in K-3 will be moving to Queen Elizabeth Annex on 27th and Crown and the General Gordon students in grades 4-7 will be at the portable site at Queen Elizabeth Elementary School on 16th and Camosun.
If you have a child in Grade 5 and are interested in a Late Immersion Program, it is a great learning opportunity that promises intellectual challenge and fun learning a new language.
