Well, after an eventful week in Washington, DC with my Future City Team I am so happy to be back in my classroom with all my students.  I want to acknowledge the incredible work ethic of my students over the past couple weeks.  With several large projects being submitted within a tight time-frame, I know they have been challenged.  I am beyond proud of each of them for putting in the time and effort to complete these projects in a timely fashion and with quality in mind.  Great job, students!

Please take note of the following updates and announcements:

Skating Days

Throughout the month of March, elementary students will have the opportunity to participate in skating days! This year, we will be traveling to the APM Center in Cornwall on three separate dates: March 1, 8, and 16.  Skate times are scheduled for 1:30-2:30. Students are required to have skates, mittens, and a helmet in order to participate.

Please be on the lookout for a permission form being sent home early this week with additional details.  Students who do not wish to participate in these skating days are asked to be picked up at the school at 12:15 on these dates.

Cheer Team Half-time Show

We are thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase the amazing talent of our GCS team at an Island Storm game this Thursday, March 1st, at 7:00 PM.  Please mark you calendars and be on the lookout for more information from Mrs. Able.

The Olympic Reading Challenge is still going on for elementary students. I encourage all students to keep going with this challenge and see what they can accomplish in the next several days. Forms are due back on February 26 and prizes will be awarded February 28.
