Hello all!

It is Winter Carnival this week, filled with dress-up days and leading up to our Ski Day on Friday. Students should also keep in mind that Mathletics Mathness competition is in full swing and there are lots of points to be earned!

Winter Carnival

Show your school spirit and join in the fun by participating in our theme days! Remember that modest, clean, neat and appropriate is always the rule! Winter Carnival is organized and sponsored by G.C.S. Student Council.

Monday: PAJAMA DAY – A student favorite! Wear your favorite pajamas to school but don’t forget to wake up!

Tuesday: MATHLETES VS. ATHLETES – Are you more of a nerd or a jock? Choose your side and dress the part!

Wednesday: HAWAII DAY – Aloha! Flowered shirts and grass skirts!

Thursday: DECADE DAY – Dress up like people from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s or any other decade from the past. Raid your parents’ closets!

Friday: SKIING (grades 3-12) – Students who wish to go skiing are asked to have their permission forms signed and returned by next Wednesday, March 13. This time there will be alternate activities held at the school for those not wishing to ski.

Bible Memory Verse

Students have been working on memorizing Romans 12:9-12, which will be recited in class this Thursday. “Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.  Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”
