I am so thankful for each one of you who took the time to meet with me to discuss your child’s progress throughout this first quarter.  I cannot wait to see what this next quarter of learning will bring, however I am confident that I can expect great things from my students. As always, should you have any questions throughout this next quarter please do not hesitate to email me at nmacneill@gcspei.ca

Please take note of the following information:

Pancake Breakfast & Auction:  

Our 13th Annual Pancake Breakfast & Auction will be held THIS Saturday, November 25th, 8:00 am to 11:00 am

This is one of the ways in which we hope to bring the GCS community together to celebrate our incredible school and the success of this event depends largely on your participation. Early this week a form will be sent home with your child for you to indicate the number of tickets you wish to purchase.  Please return your form and payment to your child’s homeroom teacher before Friday, November 24th.  Additionally, tickets may also be purchased at the door. Tickets can be purchased for $5 per person, and includes traditional or gluten-free pancakes, sausages, tea, coffee, and juice. Children aged 4 and younger eat for free.

The proceeds generated from this community-building fundraiser will go toward the 2018 mission trip to Jamaica.  We are asking for ALL FAMILIES in the school to contribute towards the auction portion of this event by donating items to this event.

Each homeroom class is preparing a themed gift basket that will be auctioned off during this event. Each student is asked to contribute to the class basket by donating items associated with their class theme. For parents wishing to give a cash donation, this is also gratefully appreciated and will be utilized to fill the basket with extra goodies!

Our class will be crafting two baskets, one filled with rainy day activities, and a second filled with items for the kitchen. If you would like to help out in the way of donating items for this fundraiser we would greatly appreciate anything you may contribute.  Students are encouraged to donate a small item for the baskets or make a small donation of $2-$5 and I will purchase items for the basket.

Please send the donated basket items associated with the class theme to your child’s homeroom teacher before Thursday, November 24th
