Hello all!

I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend. We are so thankful for everyone who took the time to meet with us to go over what this first quarter has looked like in Grade 1/2. We can’t wait to see what this next quarter of learning will bring. On Friday along with report cards we also sent home all the information regarding our Christmas concert. Make sure to mark the date and times in your calendar it’s sure to be a treat.  If you have any questions throughout this next quarter please do not hesitate to email me at cjenkins@gcspei.ca

Cold Weather

Please continue to send in warm coats, hats, and mittens with your child each day with the cold weather in full force.


Looking Ahead

Our 13th Annual Pancake Breakfast & Auction will be held on Saturday, November 25th, 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. Early next week a form will be sent home with your child for you to indicate the number of tickets you wish to purchase. Please return your form and payment to your child’s homeroom teacher before Friday, November 24th.  Additionally, tickets may also be purchased at the door. Tickets can be purchased for $5 per person, and includes traditional or gluten-free pancakes, sausages, tea, coffee, and juice. Children aged 4 and younger eat for free.

The proceeds generated from this community-building fundraiser will go toward the 2018 mission trip to Jamaica.  We are asking for ALL FAMILIES in the school to contribute towards the auction portion of this event by donating items to this event. This can be done in one of two ways:

  1. Each homeroom class is preparing a themed gift basket that will be auctioned off during this event. Each student is asked to contribute to the class basket by donating items associated with their class theme. For parents wishing to give a cash donation, this is also gratefully appreciated and will be utilized to fill the basket with extra goodies!  Again, please send the donated basket items associated with the class theme to your child’s homeroom teacher before Thursday, November 24th

Our class will be crafting both a coffee lovers basket, and a sweet tooth basket (Candy and dental supplies). If you would like to help out in the way of donating items for this fundraiser we would greatly appreciate anything you may contribute.
