Count Your Blessings! – Week 5 at GCS

Hello parents,

I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday and taking time to be thankful for all the blessings God has given us. I know for myself that I am grateful for being well-stuffed with delicious food and having the love of family and friends. As the old hymn says, it is good to “count your blessings, name them one by one; count your blessings, see what God has done!”

Cross Country Congrats

We had a great day last Wednesday running the trails with hundreds of other students from around the province. I was especially proud of the students for their positive attitudes and the way they cheered each other on! A special mention goes to Finn Galaise for placing 10th for pre-novice boys, Katie Campbell for placing 5th for pre-novice girls, and Brielle Barret for placing 10th for pre-novice girls. These students will be representing our school in the upcoming Provincial Cross Country Competition on October 21st.

Trip to Orwell Corner

On Friday, October 13th, students in grades 3-6 will be travelling by bus to Orwell Corner Historic Village for our annual Fall Party and an educational field trip. There is a $6.00 fee per student.  Students will tour the site, see a demonstration by a blacksmith, make beeswax candles and go on a wagon ride. Please pack a lunch that does not require heating and a water bottle. There is a small country store open where students can purchase candy if they wish, however each student will be responsible for keeping track of their own pocket change. Parents are welcome to help chaperone. Please let me know if you plan to join us.
