Heading into March break was both an exciting and an emotional time at G. C. Huston Public School in Southampton on Friday, March 11th (2016).

The day started out with a 'Me to We' fundraising costume dance party through the decades .  Almost $200 was raised by the students that will go to the 'Me to We' clean water project.

At the end-of-day assembly, it was time to say goodbye to a long and trusted friend ... custodian Joyce Schular.

Shular has been with the Blue Water School Board for 27 years, working in several school and finishing her career at G. C. Huston.

"Sometimes in life, we all meet someone who touches our lives," said Principal Dan Russell.  "Mrs. Shular, was one of those people.  With her kind words and gestures, she made sure that everyone in the school felt loved."

Russell went on to say that sometimes families adopt children and take them as one of their own.  "Well, our school is adopting Mr. and Mrs. Shular as our 'school grandparents'," Russell told the students.

Russell told the school body that two of their fellow students had received the Aboriginal Sports Leadership Award. "Students were nominated across Grey-Bruce and four students were nominated here at G. C. Huston, Alia Ritchie, Jack Lariviere, Hailey Johnson and Connor Chapman.  Alia and Jack have won and will be taking part in the puck drop at the Owen Sound Attack game on March 19th."
