Bad Weather

As we all know, the weather on Saturday is looking severe. Please be sure to follow the GCS media platforms for information should school be cancelled on Monday (or whenever there is a bad weather forecast).

Community Outreach Project

Our Grade 3 class will be collecting new toys/games for the Play Room in the Pediatric Unit of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. An email and paper copy with all the information were sent out during the past week. We will be collecting up to and including Thursday, Sept. 29th. Let’s bless our community!!

Terry Fox Run

This past Friday students participated in a shortened Terry Fox Run (due to the weather).  Students learned about Terry Fox and participated in a run around our school parking lot to remember his contribution to cancer research.

Dressing for the Weather

Please be sure to check the weather forecast for the day and have your child dressed ready for the varying temperatures. Keep in mind that morning recesses are often much chillier than in the afternoon. Please do not assume that we will stay inside — if it isn’t raining, we go out.


When packing your child’s lunch bag, please remember to add whatever utensils he or she will need as well. Supplies are limited at school.

Agendas and Reading Logs

Students are writing their homework on the first school day of the week. Reading logs should be completed every day that there is homework (not over the weekend). Completing the reading log is considered as homework.
