Short Week Ahead

Short Week Ahead

Being Victoria Day weekend, I hope you will all enjoy the extra time with your family and friends.  Classes will resume tomorrow, Tuesday, May 22 at 9 AM.

Move Up Day:

On Friday, June 8th your if your child is registered for our school this fall, they will participate in a “Move up Day” where they experience Sk or Grade 1 for part of the morning.  If your child will be going to a different school in the fall, don’t worry, we have a plan for them as well.  You as a parent will prepare your child for school in the same way you do each day.  We will take care of the details.

Kindergarten Graduation:

Tuesday, June 19th is our Kindergarten Graduation day. This is a half day of school for all Jk and Sk students.  Students will return to school for 6:10 pm with their families for the performance and presentation of the certificates. Please note, this is the last day of school for the children.  There will not be school again for the children until September. Details will follow in a future blog.

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 7:00 am – 7:45 am, and the Shotgun start at 8 am.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 fantastic 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 We are looking forward to a wonderful day of golf with the GCS community!
