Dear Families,

We have all seen rapid and significant changes within the last few days. Please make sure you are reading through information sent by Mrs. MacNeill via email and keeping up to date on announcements from the province and CPHO. We hope and pray that this is just a short term interruption and we will be back together sooner rather than later. For the next three days, students are encouraged to work on the following:

Mathletics March Madness Competition

Grace Christian School is hosting its very own Mathletics March Madness Competition! Mathletics is an award-winning interactive site that aims to improve math skills through fun activities linked to the Canadian curriculum. Students earn points by completing activities and answering questions in Live Mathletics competitions. When the contest closes on March 31, the highest scoring student in each grade will receive a prize!  Also, the class with the highest average points will win a class pizza party! Check the blog for weekly updates about which class is in the lead. If students do not remember their login information, please contact their homeroom teacher. The contest starts today, so you have been given an opportunity to get a great head start over the next 3 days. Grade 1 students’ login information was sent to the main email address you gave for school contact purposes.

The GCS Reading Challenge

During Love of Reading Week, Mrs. Biech launched the GCS Reading Challenge. Students were sent home with “Heart Charts” to track their reading progress in the weeks ahead. Students are strongly encouraged to spend extra time reading over the next few days so that they can fill up their chart!

Bible Fun

We encourage all students to take the time to continue learning their assigned Bible verses.  In addition, if your child is looking for an interesting Bible story or devotional, please check out these links below:





Parliament Virtual Experience (optional extra)

Grade 1 students have really enjoyed exploring this virtual experience of Parliament Hill in Ottawa. It can be accessed at this link: Parliament: The Virtual Reality Experience (360º video version) – YouTube

Until we can be together again be safe, be kind to yourselves and each other, and search for joy each day.

Mrs. Bryenton
