Can you believe we are only days away from celebrating the birth of Jesus, our Saviour?  The countdown is on inside our classroom, but before we enjoy our Christmas Break, please take note of the following announcements:

Trip to the Mount

Tomorrow morning we are heading to the Mount to sing and read to the seniors there. Please make sure your student is on time as we will be leaving at 9:00.

Christmas Around the World

I am very excited to see these projects come together! Girls will be presenting on Tuesday and boys will be presenting on Wednesday. Please let me know if there are any problems completing the project, as we may be able to extend some presentations until Thursday.

Christmas Musical Online

I am incredibly proud of all the hard working students who committed to delivering their songs and lines during our Christmas Musical last week.  We are blessed to have this opportunity to share what Christmas is all about.  If you were unable to attend the performance live, or if you’d simply like to watch it again, the entire performance can viewed on our GCS YouTube channel:

Christmas Theme Days

Throughout the final week of classes students are invited to dress up in their finest Christmas attire to help close out this portion of the school year.

  • Monday: Ugly Christmas Sweater Day
  • Tuesday: Pajama Day
  • Wednesday: Red & Green Day
  • Thursday: Christmas Character Day
  • Friday: Christmas Hat Day

Christmas Break Tidy

Please remind your children to take all their personal belongings home over the holidays.  This includes their snow-pants, mittens, hats, scarves, extra footwear, water bottles, and any poster-boards and projects they may have taken in to their classroom.  Any of these items left behind will be donated or disposed of.

Library Books

Students are being asked to return all their library books before Christmas Break.  If you are unsure if you have returned all your resources, please see Mrs. Biech early this coming week.

Half-Day Of School

This Friday, December 21st, students will be dismissed from school at 12:15 to begin their Christmas Break.  Classes will resume on January 7th at 9:00 AM.

I wish you all a very merry and Christ-filled Christmas!

Mrs. Bouter
