Hello GCS Grade 6 Family!

Grade 6 has been doing a fantastic job with keeping up with their work on Seesaw.  This greatly helps all Grade 6 teachers as they seek to grade and track the progress of students. Thank you to Grade 6 families for your continued partnership!

Wednesday, April 22nd is ‘Dress like a Grandparent Day’!  Dress like your Grandparent in honour of the generation that is most at risk.  Send a picture of yourself to admin@gcspei.ca for a chance to be featured on social media!

Also!  This Thursday, April 30th is Grade 6s turn for Thankful Thursday!  We’re asking that all Grade 6’s send in a video of things they are thankful for during this time of social distancing and online education.  Mr. Olsen will be sending one in too!  Send the video to admin@gcspei.ca for a chance to be featured on social media!
