God’s hand is at work at Grace Christian School.  We are thrilled to announce that we are just a few final steps away from breaking ground.  The membership of Grace Baptist Church has approved Phase One of the expansion of GCS; Lord willing, we will begin this phase of our expansion within the next month! Engineered drawings have been acquired and sent to the City of Charlottetown for approval.  Please pray for a timely approval process, so together we can celebrate at a ground-breaking ceremony this November.

Additional information about our multi-phase expansion, concept drawings, and our overarching Plant A Seed Campaign can be found online at https://www.gcspei.ca/giving/.  In the coming weeks, please watch for additional exciting details that will be sent home with your child.

We had a great fall trip to Island Hill Farm last Friday. We received a wonderful tour of the property where our students were able to interact with all sorts of friendly friendly animals. Thank you for being vigilant in returning permission forms on time so that everybody was able to come and experience the fun. We look forward to more class events throughout the year.

ACSI Convention – No School

Each member of the GCS team is committed to professional excellence and seeks to improve their teaching skills through professional development and the implementation of 21stcentury pedagogy.  We are thankful for the opportunity to participate in the ACSI Teacher’s Conference in Moncton this coming Thursday and Friday.  There will be no classes for students on those days.

Tests This Week

With our field trip taking place last Friday we were unable to take our spelling test. On Monday, both grade one and grade two will take their spelling test. List #3 for grade one and list #5 for grade two.

As the weeks pass by please continue to check agendas for permission slips and hot lunch orders as well as our blue (grade two) and green (grade one) homework folders to keep your child caught up on class work.
