Greetings! Happy Mother’s Day! I am so thankful for all of our GCS mothers who pour into their children’s learning at home and also for many of you that devote time to help with extra-curricular activities at school. Your hard work and dedication to the success of GCS students does not go unnoticed. I hope you are enjoying this beautiful sunny Sunday as much as I am. As these weeks fly by please stay tuned in to our blog for any school-wide festivities or volunteer opportunities.
Our students are beginning to enjoy beautiful sunny recess weather and we are so thankful for our too hot for jackets moments however we encourage you to continue sending jackets and sweaters with your children as our morning recesses can often be chilly.
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!
