Hello Families of GCS Jk & SK Students,

I hope you are enjoying your weekend with your families.

This has been a great first quarter in Kindergarten. This group of children are working together so nicely. They are kind, helpful and willing to participate in so many learning activities. Mrs. Squires and I are enjoying each day together with them.

Parent/Teacher Conferences

I want to talk about the report cards and parent/teacher conferences this  year.  As you may have read in our emails, this year our conferences will be different from any other year we have had. In the past, we have been excited to meet with each parent and talk about all the adventures your child has contributed to thus far.  However due to COVID we are unable to continue in that manor and therefor our schedule and meetings will be considerably limited. We ask that you sign up for a space to meet us only if you have a concern about your child’s Kindergarten experience. I will be sending an email to a few families that I would like to meet with and touch base. I am so thankful this year we have experienced easy transitions between home and school  Mrs. Squires and I have no concerns about any of your children that need attention. I hope that brings joy for each of you to hear! This is in large part because of all the effort you parents have made to see that your children are ready for learning and sharing each day. Thank you for all you have done. After saying all of this and you still wish to meet with us and the spots have been taken, we will be happy to set up a ZOOM meeting with you at another date. Send me an email at lperry@gcspei.ca

My School Management–Access to Report Cards

Each family has access to GCS’s online school management system (MSM) at gcs.myschoolmanagement.com.  Logging into it will allow parents to view upcoming assignments, tuition balances, and view quarterly report cards this year.  If you do not know your login information, you can visit the previous link and click “having problems logging in”, enter your email address, and the system will send you instructions on resetting your password; this will work even if you have not logged into MSM before.  Report cards will be published ONLY in My School Management this year, so you must log in to your account in order to view them.   We suggest that you ensure that you can log in well before the report card day on November 19.  If you have any login problems, please email Mr. Ellis (jellis@gcspei.ca) for more assistance.

Usborne Literacy Fair
It is time once again for our Annual Usborne Literacy Fair.  This event has typically allowed our school library and classrooms to receive hundreds of dollars worth of books for free.  The fair will be running throughout this week into parent-teacher conferences.  Please be looking for a further announcement that will provide more details for placing your order.
