It’s hard to believe that we are just a few weeks away from the end of the first quarter of school.
The children have learned the 5 short vowels by letter recognition, sound and picture prompt. They listen for the short vowels in three letter words like: cat, hen, pig, dog and bug.
They can count to 10 and identify each number. We have also been decomposing numbers to 5.
Please take note of the following announcements and important dates.
ACSI Convention – No School
Each member of the GCS team is committed to professional excellence and seeks to improve their teaching skills through professional development and the implementation of 21stcentury pedagogy. We are thankful for the opportunity to participate in the ACSI Teacher’s Conference in Moncton this coming Thursday and Friday. There will be no classes for students on those days.
Operation Christmas Child
Did you see our Christmas Tree? It is that time of year again at GCS, the Christmas shoebox time of year!
The GCS students are hearing stories about how God is using the simple gift of a shoe box to impact other kids around the world. We are looking forward to blessing thousands of children around the world with shoe boxes and the gospel of Jesus Christ. All of our shoe boxes are going to the Ukraine this year ~ this is a place that has a cold climate.
There are many ways you can contribute to a shoebox.
*Fill one following the examples from: //www.samaritanspurse.ca/suggested-gifts/
*Or you can send in $20.00 and your box will be filled with items for the age of the child you select. Done, easy…
*Or if you like you can send money in a marked envelope to be combined with other family offers.
Keep in mind that all shoe boxes need to be back to GCS by Wednesday, November 14th. We also need to make sure that we add $10 to each box to help with the cost of shipping if you can.
