Dear GCS Grade 6 Families,

This next week is our last week of classes!

For our final Social Studies project, students will need to film their Newscast videos this weekend.  If parents could help students film and upload the files to Google Drive, that would be great.  This assignment is due on Monday morning.

In Math this week, we finished our last quiz.  We will be doing some fun math activities in the remaining three days.

Please read the details below to understand what activities students will be participating in this week.

Water Day:

As a celebration of the end of the school year, students in grades 4-6 will enjoy a wet and wild afternoon of fun on Monday, June 14th. We will play classic water games such as Water Balloon Toss, Dodge-Sponge, and Duck Duck Dunk, and will even have a Slip and Slide. Students are asked to come prepared with swimwear and a towel. As we are still abiding by the school dress code, boys are asked to wear a t-shirt with their swim shorts and girls will need to cover their bathing suits with a t-shirt and shorts. Students may also take sunscreen if they tend to burn and water shoes or sandals that they do not mind getting wet if they do not want to run barefoot through the grass. Please note that students will not be allowed back into the school if they are wet and will be returning home on the soggy side.

Year-End Closing Events:

The Grade 5 class has been working hard the past couple of weeks planning a year-end carnival for the elementary students at GCS. To help cover some of the costs involved with the event, we are asking each elementary student to bring in $2.00 before June 18th. This will go towards snacks, drinks, door prizes, and balloons. After gathering in the chapel for school closing remarks from Mrs. MacNeill, students will head outside to our back field for carnivals games and field games. Students can look forward to balloon games, ring toss, face painting, beanbag toss, various tag games, a candy jar count guessing game, and door prizes! If the weather is not suitable for outdoor activities, we have a modified plan to run indoors. We are looking forward to an amazing day as we close out the 2020-2021 school year.
