September is flying by! Our class is getting into the swing of different subjects and responsibilities at school. We have loved learning from different passionate teachers throughout the building. Our school week has been changing with new assignments and quizzes. We ask that you take note of these and different scheduling throughout the week in order to help your child come prepared as we get moving into our school year.

Quizzes This Week:

Thursday: Gr. 2 Phonics Quiz #1

Friday: Gr 2. Spelling Quiz List #3

Gr. 1 will have their first Spelling Quiz this Friday on List #1 (Students will be taking home their blue notebooks and yellow folders to practice their words once each night).

After-School Art Club

Beginning on Oct 4th, and running Wednesdays from 3:00 – 4:15 PM until November 1st, Mrs. Able will be hosting an after-school art club for students in the elementary. The cost to participate is $20. Please sign your child’s permission slip and return your payment should they wish to participate.
Hot Lunch Program
Please keep an eye out for more information about our school’s Hot Lunch Program which will be provided in the near future.  Although lunch forms will be sent home each week to indicate the options available, parents may also wish to check our online school calendar to plan ahead.
Scrip Program

Scrip is Grace Christian School’s simple fundraising program using gift cards from popular retailers. The school purchases these gift cards at a discount and resells them to parents for the face value of the card. Families will earn back the difference of the purchase (to a specified amount) to be returned to that family in June in the form of their choice of gift cards, tuition bursary, donation to GCS staff, or donation to GCS Plant a Seed Fund.  Please remember to stop by the Scrip Cart just inside the school doors to purchase your gift cards.
