We have a short week ahead of us.  Here are a few things to take note of as we go into this week.

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.

Operation Christmas Child

Did you see our Christmas Tree? It is that time of year again at GCS, the Christmas shoe box time of year!

The GCS students are hearing stories about how God is using the simple gift of a shoe box to impact other kids around the world. We are looking forward to blessing thousands of children around the world with shoe boxes and the gospel of Jesus Christ.   All of our shoe boxes are going to the Ukraine this year ~ this is a place that has a cold climate.

Keep in mind that all shoe boxes need to be back to GCS by Weds. 11/14. We also need to make sure that we add $10 to each box to help with the cost of shipping, if you can.

Need ideas for your kids to pack?  Here is the link of the top 100 things to put in a shoe-box. https: //www.samaritanspurse.ca/suggested-gifts/    

Dressing for the Weather

We have had some cold, wet, windy days of late!  All grade one students should have a full change of clothes that can be kept in their backpack, or in a Ziploc bag that can be kept in the classroom.  As well, please ensure your child comes to school dressed for the cool weather everyday.  This includes the following items:

  • Mittens
  • Splash pants
  • Warm jacket or coat
  • A hat and scarf/neck warmer aren’t a bad idea, too!
