It’s time for your weekly update from our classroom. Take a peak at what’s happening:
Project Based Learning Presentations:
Students in Gr 6 have been working on a project to identity potential ways local restaurants can reduce their use of plastics in hopes of reducing the waste that ends up in our oceans affecting the PEI fishing industry. I am extremely proud of the students who have worked collaboratively to prepare. We are hopeful to be able to live-stream the presentations THIS Tuesday, May 14, between 1:00 – 3:00 PM so you can join us, but at the very least will record them to share with you all.
Calling all mothers, daughters, and grandmothers! A reminder that tomorrow, May 11th, at 2:00 PM is the mother-daughter tea party for those who registered through their homeroom teacher.
Father & Son Bowling Event:
Calling all GCS boys. We invite you and your father, grandfathers, and great-grandfathers to an evening of bowling at Murphy’s Bowling Alley on Friday, May 17th from 6:00 – 7:15 PM. The cost per bowling is $7.00. Please return your son’s permission slip and payment for each bowler by Thursday, May 16th.
In-House Track & Field Meet:
