Greetings! Spring is finally here! I hope everyone has had a wonderful March Break, whether you stayed on Island spending time with friends and family or went away for some fun. I look forward to the remainder of the school year with each of your children preparing them for Grade 5 as the flowers bloom and our beautiful island warms up.

Family Fun Run

Attention Knights! Are you ready to get fit and have some fun? The GCS Family Fun Run is coming up very soon! Grace Christian School will be hosting their annual Family Fun Run, which is a 5k running/walking event that encourages physical fitness in our school and brings the community together, on Saturday, May 4th. There will be registration forms sent home with your children over the coming weeks, with early registration resulting in a discounted price. Please return the form and money to your students’ homeroom teachers. All the proceeds will go towards our Plant a Seed Campaign. We hope to see you all there at the GCS Family Fun Run!

Mathetics March Math-ness Update

The last week of March Math-ness has begun! I encourage students to tackle as many activities as they can to earn points and improve their math skills. As of Week #2, Grace Christian School was in 18th place of all the schools competing in Canada. We will know by Tuesday how our students fared over March Break with the standings for Week #3. Also, students keep in mind that the Mathlete with the highest number of points in each class will earn a prize.
