What an exciting week we have ahead of us in the Grade 5/6 classroom as students finally have the opportunity to showcase their hard work over the past several weeks in completing their Dementia Projects. Please take note of the following information about these presentations, as well as some additional information about the weeks ahead:
Project Based Learning Presentations:
As many of you already know, students in Gr 5/6 have been working on a project to explore their role as future visionaries in addressing the real world challenges associated with living with dementia. I am extremely proud of the students who have worked collaboratively to prepare a Dragon’s Den pitch for their businesses and products. We are hopeful to be able to live-stream the presentations on Tuesday, May 15, between 1:00 – 3:00 PM so you can join us, but at the very least will record them to share with you all.
Please take note of the following reminders, students:
- Please bring in any presentation items from home on Monday.
- Additional rehearsal-time will be provided on Monday.
- You are equipped, and all play an important role in the success of this project. I am already proud of you!!!
Annual Golf Challenge:
The annual GCS Golf Challenge is just a couple weeks away! This is a GCS event that has been a great fundraiser for many years. The tournament will take place on Saturday, June 2nd at the Clyde River Golf & Country Club. Registration and sign in will be between 7:00am – 7:45am, and the Shotgun start at 8am.The entry fee is $100.00 per person OR $400.00 per team (4 golfers). Students under the age of 18 can enter for a fee of $75. Each entry fee includes the following:
- Green Fee
- Cart Rental
- Sleeve of Balls
- Gift Certificate for a Warrior Hybrid or Wedge
- Complimentary Snacks & Drinks on the course
- Surf ‘n Turf lunch (Mussels & Steak) after the round
- $40.00 charitable receipt (per entrant)
The tournament format is Scramble Foursome. This format requires each golfer on the team hit a drive. The results of the drives are compared and the best is selected. That ball is selected and marked, and the other golfers on the team pick up their golf balls and move them to that location. The second strokes are played, and the process repeats: Select the best ball, move the other balls to that spot and play the third strokes. And so on, until the ball is holed for one team score.
This event is a great opportunity to bring the GCS community together and to raise funds for the school. This year, the proceeds from our golf challenge will be used to support our BUY A BRICK campaign which will provide infrastructure to allow for greater growth in enrollment and provide for the future success of our students in the disciplines of academics, athletics, technology, the arts, music, and English language acquisition.
In addition to participating in the Golf Challenge, there are opportunities to sponsor a hole at the event. There are four levels of sponsorship available (Bronze – $500, Silver – $1000, Gold – $1500, and Platinum – $2500) and each level has its benefits, however, full receipts for sponsorship will be provided.
For more information regarding registration or sponsorship opportunities, please contact Michaela Arthurs at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking forward to a great day of golf with the GCS community!
