On Friday, Jan. 29, 2021, Green for Life (GFL), the Division's waste removal services provider, will deliver individually wrapped Tim Horton's cookies for all staff at schools, maintenance office, and central office.

In a written letter to all staff, GFL's Sales Manager for Northern Alberta, Brad Letain, shared appreciation to GPPSD staff, adding, "Well-done Teachers and support staff of Grande Prairie Public Schools! Green For Life (GFL) values you as corporate clients but even more as essential front-line workers. GFL is not only an environmentally friendly company but also one that values community and recognizes teacher's commitment to school safety ….. we hope this Tim Horton's cookie allows you to sit back for a moment and enjoy one of Life's simple pleasures. GFL knows teachers are GFL (Good For Learning), and we are Grateful to have you on the Front Line."
Associate Superintendent Norm Guindon shared, "The success of students and schools in the Grande Prairie Public School Division is driven by the efforts of our staff and is supported by the working relationships we have with partners like GFL. I know our staff will be very appreciative on Friday of this generous gesture of recognition and support by GFL."
