Greetings! We have made it to our final full week of classes at GCS. The next two weeks are sure to be full of fun-filled celebrations! Take note of important events and announcements below.

Grade 6 Graduation

Please join us this Wednesday, June 13th, at 9:00 AM for our Grade Six Graduation Ceremony.  Parents and siblings of our graduates are welcome to join us after the ceremony for a treat, however regular classes will resume for the remainder of the day.

Year-end Trip to Emmanuel Bible Camp

On Thursday, June 14th, students in grades 1-6 will be travelling by bus to Emmanuel Bible Camp for their year-end trip. They will enjoy a variety of camp activities such as pellet range, archery, rock wall climbing, sports, crafts, camp-wide games, swimming and canoeing (water sports will be only for students in grades 3-6). Students should pack a lunch that does not need to be heated. Also, they should come prepared with bug spray, sunscreen, a hat, layered clothing (in case it becomes cold), swim wear (for students grades 3-6), and sneakers. Students also wishing to purchase a small treat from the tuck shop, should bring their own money.  Items such as chocolate bars, ice cream, chips, candy, juice, etc are $1.50 each.

The bus will be leaving at 9:00, so please be at school on time. Students are asked to bring $2.00 to cover the cost of the bus. If you are interested in chaperoning, or have any questions, please feel free to contact me. This should be a great time to relax and have fun in the great outdoors!

Take note that we have a rain date scheduled for Friday, June 15.
