Greetings! I hope everyone is enjoying a nice relaxing weekend as we count down our days until Christmas break. Please take note of all our information below regarding our concert and paying special attention to the time students are expected to come prior to the concert and the dress code. Elementary has put so much hard work into learning each song and we can’t wait for you to be a part of it.

Christmas Concert Reminders:

This year we are very pleased to be presenting the musical Christmas Shop Around the Corner on Thursday, December 14th, with a matinee performance at 1:30 pm and an evening performance at 6:30 pm. Students are asked to return to school for the evening performance by 6 PM to prepare for the stage.  As family, you will want to grab your seat early too as we are expecting a very large audience. Please take note that the dress code for the concert is red, silver, white, or black special dress clothing (girls in dresses or skirts, and a dress shirt and dark pants for the boys – no jeans please).

Christmas Blessings & Bricks:

It is that time of year to bless others and donate to programs that are close to your heart. Our “Buy A Brick” campaign is now available through the SCRIP table. What a wonderful way to bless the school and someone that you admire by buying a brick in their name and gifting it to GCS.  Bricks can be purchased for $250.  So, if you know someone who deserves to be honored in this way please visit Mr. Huizing at the SCRIP table or to learn more about how you can support our Buy A Brick Campaign, please contact me at
