I just want to thank parents for driving students last Friday to the Mount. The residents are always so appreciative of the visit, even is it’s brief. It was a blessing to see the students giving hugs and bringing a smile to the faces of the seniors.
Please be reminded that Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes are due to come in this Wednesday, November 15th. We will collect them all in chapel and then pray over them before they are sent to the Ukraine. What a wonderful way to show compassion and love as we head into the holiday season!
Report Cards and Sign-up for Parent-Teacher Conferences
Report cards will be going home on Thursday, November 16th. The communication form will need to be signed and both it and the envelope returned to me. However, you can keep the actual report card for your records.
Also, for those of you who have not done so, please remember to sign up for Parent-Teacher Conferences happening this week on Thursday, November 16th, from 6:00-9:00 PM and on Friday, November 17th, from 10:00-12:00 AM. Sign-up sheets are in the church foyer where the students now enter. If you are unable to attend during those times, please feel free to email me and we can set up a time that works for you. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Parents of ESL students will need to arrange to meet with the ESL teacher, Miss Kelsey Huizing, as well. I look forward to discussing your child’s progress with you!
Usborne Book Sale
Once again this year, Mrs. Biech will be hosting an Usborne Book Sale during parent-teacher interviews. This is a fantastic opportunity to begin some early Christmas shopping! For those unable to attend, you can always email Mrs. Biech with orders at email@example.com. The online catalog can be found at http://www.usbornebooksathome.ca/usborne_books/browse.asp. All proceeds go to the GCS library.
