With students heading back to class in just a few more days, it is my prayer that each of them are eager to regroup and ready to make the first portion of 2019 one that is filled with exciting learning opportunities. Please take note of the following reminders and announcements:
Back To School
Classes at GCS will resume on Monday, January 7th at 9:00 AM, however we recommend that students arrive at 8:45 to get settled into their classrooms. Students should come prepared for a full day of classroom instruction.
Winter Weather Reminder:
As we experience more winter-like temperatures and weather conditions, please remind your children to come prepared for outdoors. Students are encouraged to carry a warm hat and mittens in their backpacks everyday and to come dressed in a warm jacket. Snow pants and winter boots will also help your children stay warm and dry as we enjoy the winter weather and fun in the snow.
For students who arrive prior to 8:45 AM, please note that students will not be permitted to go inside the school to gather their winter gear. Please have them arrive dressed for the winter conditions.
Bricks Of Honour:
The Bricks of Honour initiative calls on all stakeholders of Grace Christian School to recognize their personal capacity to give and to act upon it.
To purchase a brick in honour of staff, students or alumni, please forward your payment in one of the following ways:
1) Return the pledge form and payment to your child’s homeroom teacher,
2) E-Transfer your payment to firstname.lastname@example.org allocating your gift towards the campaign, or 3) Visit tithe.ly and set up your online monthly giving plan.
For more information, contact the Advancement Office at email@example.com.
