Hello Families,

What a fun and busy week we had!

Our new friend started school with us last week and he is delightful!

We celebrated a classmate’s birthday, and we began reading 1 vowel words in Senior Kindergarten as well as learning about what a sentence looks like.


Christmas Service Project

Thanks’ to you parents, we have a nice collection of slippers and sock to bless the seniors of the Prince Edward Home with. Yea!

As we prepare to celebrate the Christmas season, GCS is so thankful to have an opportunity to bless others in our community.  This year, we will give back to the residents living at Prince Edward Home by collaboratively purchasing gifts for them to open on Christmas morning.

In the past, students from GCS would visit several Island senior homes to sing Christmas carols and deliver warm Christmas wishes. Due to the limitations brought about by COVID-19, our students have been unable to physically visit. However, this Christmas, each class will be asked to purchase specific items as per the requests of the residents at The PE Home. The gift baskets with these items will be delivered to the care home by December 5th, in time for the coordinators to quarantine the items before packaging them for the residents to open on Christmas morning.

The Prince Edward Home is home to 120 residents, and collaboratively the GCS community can bless each one of them this Christmas season. Kindergarten will be collecting: Slippers and Socks Items need to be brought in to school by Tuesday, Dec. 1.

 In addition to these items, any GCS student can also purchase the following items:  scarves, decorative pillows, throws/blankets, jewelry, and/or vouchers/gift cards for Tim Horton’s, McDonald’s, or Pat & The Elephant.

All donations need to be brought in no later than Tuesday, December 1st (“Giving Tuesday”).

Dates to Remember:

  • Tuesday, Dec.1 – Last day to bring in Christmas Outreach Project items.
  • Friday, Dec. 18th – Last Instructional Day of 2020 (1/2 Day)

Enjoy your week!

Mrs. Perry
