Hello Families of Grace Kindergarten.
I hope your children were able to sleep through the storm last night. My goodness, it was windy.
There have been some questions on whether there will be school at the end of this week. Yes, we are scheduled for school this week. However, on Monday, November 12th there will not be school.
Annual GCS Remembrance Day Ceremony:
Friday, November 9th, marks the date for Grace Christian School’s annual Remembrance Day service. The service will begin at 2:00 pm and last for approximately one hour. Following the ceremony, students will be dismissed for the day.
As in the past, we are asking for your help in inviting veterans, or currently serving members of the military, to the service so that we can honour their contribution to securing our freedom. If you know that a veteran or service person will be in attendance as a result of your invitation, please contact Mrs. Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org and give her the individual’s name, rank, and field of service. This will enable us to give him/her appropriate recognition during the ceremony.
Also, Mr. Ellis is again preparing a PowerPoint to be played during the service; therefore, we are soliciting photographs of family members who served during the World Wars, the Korean War, the Afghanistan conflict, or in peace-keeping, to personalize our presentation. Any photos received will be scanned and returned in a timely manner. We understand that they are family treasures. Photos can also be scanned at home and e-mailed to the school at email@example.com. Please indicate the name, rank, field of service, arena and time served (e.g. Corporal Joe Smith, army, France, 1939-1945) of the individual pictured, as well as the relationship to your student (e.g. great-uncle of Katie Jones, grade three). Please note that photos shared in previous years are on file and do not need to be re-submitted, but, if adjustments or corrections are required, please send that information. New photos and/or adjustments must be received by Mr. Ellis no later than 3 pm, Monday, November 5th.
Annual Pancake Breakfast:
Our 14th Annual Pancake Breakfast will be held Saturday, November 24th, 8:00 am to 11:00 am.
This is one of the ways in which we hope to bring the GCS community together to celebrate our incredible school and the success of this event depends largely on your participation. Mark your calendars and be on the lookout for more information in the coming weeks.
GCS Movie Day:
Saturday, November 10th is GCS Movie Day at the Charlottetown Cineplex. All GCS students and families are invited to see The Grinch at 2:40 PM. Forms were sent home this past week with all students outlining the details. For children under the age of 12, tickets are $6.00 each and for everyone age 13 and up, tickets are $9.00 each. Children under 13 must be supervised by a parent. Please return the forms with the student’s name and payment by Monday, November 5th to receive your tickets. Tickets will be sent home with students on Wednesday, November 7th. GCS will have reserved seating at the movie.
