As the Thanksgiving long weekend comes to a close I pray you’ve had a wonderful time reflecting on all God’s blessings.

Please take note of the following announcements:

No Class on Monday

Classes will resume on Tuesday, Oct. 9th at 9:00 AM.

Cross Country Meet

We welcome parents to join us in cheering on our grade 3-6 students as they compete in the annual Cross Country Meet on Wednesday, October 10th. Grades 3-4 will run the 1.5 km race while grades 5-6 will run 2 km. Students are asked to come prepared with running shoes, a GCS T-shirt, layers of clothing (in case it is cold), and sunscreen (in case it is hot!). Also, students should pack a healthy snack and water bottle. We will be leaving the school at 9 AM and travelling by bus to the Terry Fox Sports Complex in Cornwall. We will return to school by noon. GO KNIGHTS GO!

International Potluck Supper

Save the date! On October 17 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm, all Grace Christian School and Grace Baptist Church families are welcome to join us for our fall potluck supper. Families that attend should bring a dish to share that will feed 6 – 8 people. If your last name begins with A – L, we ask that you bring a dessert or salad to share. If your last name begins with M – Z, please bring a main dish to share. GCS will supply the drinks and fun! There will ice-breaker games and prizes for getting to know the most new friends.

Interested in learning the most widely spoken language in the world? Want to communicate with one out of every six people and many of your GCS friends?
