Hello Parents!

I would like to begin by thanking you for such a wonderful start to the school year!  What a great first week we had!

Meet the Teacher

This coming Monday, GCS will be hosting a Meet the Teacher time from 3:00-4:00pm.  This is a time for parents that are new to the school to meet their child(ren)’s teacher(s) or for returning parents to meet any new teachers.  Parents are asked to remain in their vehicles until 3:00pm and then come into GCS through the main school doors.  In order for multiple parents to meet the various teachers, please ensure that your time with each teacher is kept to a minimum.

Below is the list of the teachers that your child has, the subject they teach and their email address.

Science – Mrs. MacNeill (nmacneill@gcspei.ca)

French/Gym – Mrs. Laird (alaird@gcspei.ca)

Bible– Mrs. McGonnell (fmcgonnell@gcspei.ca)

Music – Mrs. Wilting (jwilting@gcspei.ca)

Art/Library/Relationships – Mrs. Arthurs (jarthurs@gcspei.ca)

Spelling Lists

Students will begin studying for their first spelling test on Friday, Sept.16th. Please ensure that the words that will be sent home on Monday are being practiced at home regularly.


I have sent each student home with a reading log to be completed during the weekdays. I have asked each one of my students to read to a parent/adult at least 2 times a week, then independently on the other 3 days. Please initial the reading log after they have completed 15 minutes of reading each night.

Wishing you all a pleasant weekend,

Mrs. Summerfield
