A Knight to Remember Celebration:  You’re Invited

As we see God’s hand at work each day at GCS, we are growing more and more thankful for the individuals He has called to be part of this growing ministry.  We are delighted to be honoring three staff members from GCS on April 27th, 2018.  We would like to extend an invitation for you to join us in celebrating the significant contributions of Anne Laird, Elsie Barrett, and Neil Thompson throughout their years of service at GCS thus far.

A stand-up reception, followed by desserts and a celebration ceremony, will begin at 6:30 PM. Tickets can be purchased for $30 each at the school office beginning March 12th, 2018 and must be purchased by April 16th, 2018.

We also encourage you consider purchasing a brick in honor of these individuals who have invested a great deal in the lives of many families.  Bricks can be purchased using a donation card which will be given to you upon ticket purchase.  For more information about A Knight to Remember, please contact admin@gcspei.ca.
