Happy Weekend, GCS Family!

It is hard to believe that we are less than one month away from school closing.  That being said, our days continue to be busy and filled with learning. Please take note of following updates and announcements:

Jamaica Chapel Service: 

Recently 8 of our Gr. 11 and 5 of our Gr. 12 students had the opportunity to minister and to be ministered to in Hanover, Jamaica. The students are very thankful to have had this opportunity and look forward to sharing about their time in Jamaica.  Please feel welcome to the Jamaica Testimonial Chapel on Tuesday, May 29th at 9 AM as each team member shares their story of how they were impacted by this experience.

ASCI Elementary Track Meet: 

This Wednesday, all elementary students in grades 3-6 will attend the annual ACSI Elementary Track Meet at UPEI.  Many of our students will be competing in various track events, however all students are encouraged to join us in cheering on their classmates.  Students are asked to come dressed in appropriate running apparel and footwear – including a GCS t-shirt in any of our school colors.  They should also be prepared with their snacks, lunches, and a full water bottle. Students will be leaving the school at 9 AM to travel by bus to UPEI.  Staff and students will return to school by 3:00 PM.  Parents are also welcome to attend this event.

Financial Aid:

As our school continues to grow, it is our desire that all families who are part of GCS have the opportunity to continue to have their children attend the school.  Financial aid is available for families that are enrolled for the 2018-19 school year.  Applications for financial aid are available on the school website (https://www.gcspei.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/scholarship_application.pdf) or from the school office. Financial aid is provided on a yearly application basis and application forms must be turned in to the school office by Friday, June 8.  If you have any questions about financial aid, please contact Mr. Biech (principal@gcspei.ca or 902-628-1668).
