On Tuesday October 7th, GRSS Teacher Katrina Kornylo received a Certificate of Achievement from the 2014 Prime Minister’s Awards for Teaching Excellence!
You can read more about Mrs. Kornylo and her achievements in our high school in her official bio on the Government of Canada website: Katrina Korynylo. However, the quote from a student says it all:
“Mrs. Kornylo loves her job more than anyone else that we know. Her passion for math and science is beyond comprehension; so when she takes it into the classroom, it makes a much more exciting environment for students to experience.”
Debbie Erickson doesn’t have Facebook but I am relaying her message here. She needs help putting up the Nimpkish fencing for Canada Day weekend. It needs to be done on Wednesday at the latest. If anyone has suggestions of times to do it that would work for most people, we could really use the community’s help!

Volunteers needed to help plan Gold River’s 50th Birthday Celebrations in 2015.
A meeting will held on June 12, starting at 7.30 p.m. in the Gold River Museum and Archives room in the Jack Christensen Centre (old Lions Den above the Day Care).
Everyone is welcome to attend and please bring some ideas of how you would like to this important event celebrated.
The event will begin on the Wednesday, Aug. 26 – the actual anniversary date, with cake etc at a location to be determined. We are scheduling events for Thursday & Friday and hope to encourage businesses & organizations to hold their “mini reunions” (individual group get togethers) on the Friday. Saturday we will have a parade ending in Nimpkish Park, where there will be booths, games, music and of course a salmon BBQ. The museum society is hosting an art show, Paddles of Gold, from 6-9 and then there will be a Dance starting at 9pm. Sunday morning there is talk of a pancake breakfast and/or coffee, pie and music in the plaza..
