We are back to a full school week!
GCS Annual Christmas Outreach Project
As we prepare to celebrate the Christmas season, GCS is so thankful to have another opportunity to bless others in our community. This year, we will once again give back to the residents living at Prince Edward Home by collaboratively purchasing gifts for them to open on Christmas morning.
When COVID-19 first impacted our province back in the Spring of 2020, some of the most vulnerable were left without the opportunity to leave their homes. Many seniors were also left without the companionship of their families, and therefore, they relied heavily on support, love, and generosity of the caretakers inside their care homes. This is when GCS identified the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus, seeking to love on and support the residents of Prince Edward Home. Not only were the residents and staff deeply touched by the students’ generosity, but our students received such a blessing being able to serve. And so, the tradition continues!
This Christmas, each class will be asked to purchase specific items as per the requests of the residents at The PE Home. The gift baskets with these items will be delivered to the care home during the first week December, in time for the coordinators to package them for the residents to open on Christmas morning.
Kindergarten will be responsible for these items: Socks & Slippers: men’s and ladies grip socks, tube socks, diabetic socks, various size slippers.
Thank you in advance if you are able to add to this Christmas wish.
Elementary Christmas Production:
We are anticipating a live, in-house, concert as we have done in years past. The musical has an “Old West” theme.
**I’ve had some families ask what time will the Kindergarten participate in the afternoon production. That information will go out tomorrow (Monday) in an email.
Kindergarten students are asked to wear a pair of dark or light jeans and a multi-coloured plaid shirt to school for the day. Please no holsters or plastic guns.
