Greetings! What a wild week of weather it has been. I am so thankful that many of our students were able to join us Friday for a cozy day in our classroom. With many cancellations and hour delays already, I’d like to remind everyone to stay up to date with either our facebook page, instagram page, or automated text system. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding any of our social media accounts or texting system. Please take note below of all information regarding our Christmas concert as well as our Christmas service project.
Christmas Service Project
At GCS we encourage students to think beyond themselves to find ways to serve others during the Christmas season and throughout the year. As part of our Christmas service project, Grades 1-2 will be traveling to Geneva Villa on Monday, December 10th. Students will present songs from our Christmas program and visit with the residents to wish them a Merry Christmas. We will be leaving the school at 12:40 pm to arrive in time for 1:00 pm. We will arrive back at the school for 2:30 pm. Drivers are needed for this event. If you are available to drive, please indicate on your permission slip how many students you can take in your vehicle.
Classic Christmas Concert (Grade K-2)
Please join us on Thursday, December 6th from 2:30 – 3:00 for the presentation of a Classic Christmas Concert. Students in Kindergarten through Grade Two have been preparing for the Christmas season by memorizing Bible verses, singing classic Christmas carols, and playing instruments. You won’t want to miss this sweet delivery of the Christmas story as the students share about the birth of Jesus.
Christmas Musical Program (Grades 3-6)
Please mark your calendars for a second Christmas production, this time hosted by the students in Grades 3-6. Students will be performing a full-length Christmas musical titled “Straight Outta Bethlehem”. The focus of this musical is about how God adopts us into His family. Throughout the story the message is clear that no one is unwanted, no one is alone, and no one is an orphan, because God has bought us with the gift of his Son. This is a powerful message for children! God sent his Son as a baby straight outta Bethlehem to grow up, to redeem us and to die in our place. What a reason to celebrate! All students are requested to attend both performances.
Island Hill Farm & Duke of Edinburgh Fundraiser
The Duke of Edinburgh Program participants invite you and your family to attend their “Goats with the Duke at Christmas” at Island Hill Farm on December 9th from 1 pm – 3 pm.
