It’s time to head back to class after a week of family fun and relaxation. I look forward to hearing about all my students’ Spring Break adventures as we return to complete the remainder of the third quarter. Please take note of the following announcements:
Provincial Science Fair:
This Wednesday, March 27, five students from GCS will attend the Provincial Science Fair at the University of Prince Edward Island. Parents of these children will receive additional information about drop-off times, set-up, award ceremonies, etc. Please keep these students in your prayers as they continue to prepare for this event.
Family Fun Run
Attention Knights! Are you ready to get fit and have some fun? The GCS Family Fun Run is coming up very soon! Grace Christian School will be hosting their annual Family Fun Run, which is a 5k running/walking event that encourages physical fitness in our school and brings the community together, on Saturday, May 4th. There will be registration forms sent home with your children over the coming weeks, with early registration resulting in a discounted price. Please return the form and money to your students’ homeroom teachers. All the proceeds will go towards our Plant A Seed Campaign. We hope to see you all there at the GCS Family Fun Run!
Project Based Learning (Grade 6)
I am sure many of you will hear the buzz of excitement over our next big project in Grade 6 as we roll it out over the coming week. Students will be challenged to critically consider a current real-world issue and identify possible solutions through collaboration and innovation. Project-specific learning will also take place in Science, Reading, Writing, Art, Bible, Math, French, and Canadian Studies classes. Students will need to accumulate learning from all classes and apply it to their final project in order to meet all learning objectives. For more details about this in-class project, please see your child’s full project outline which will be provided for them over the next week.
