We’ve finished the first quarter!

We are thankful that we have been able to have one full quarter of in-person learning.  Thank you for your work at home this quarter to ensure your child’s success. It’s been a great start to the year and I’ve been blessed with a great group of students. This week will be a short week as there will be no school on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

Flanders Field Recording Tomorrow

Please be reminded that students will be recorded tomorrow morning for the Remembrance Day Ceremony video which will be shown to the school on Tuesday. Students should practice reciting Flanders Field this evening. Mrs. Biech has posted a video to assist with practice on Seesaw. Also, students should come to school dressed for the recording. Girls should wear a casual dress or skirt. Boys should wear dress pants or khakis (pants with a button) and a nice somewhat dressy shirt or sweater (no t-shirts).

My School Management

Each family has access to GCS’s online school management system (MSM) at gcs.myschoolmanagement.com.  Logging into it will allow parents to view upcoming assignments, tuition balances, student grades (in select courses in elementary), and view quarterly report cards this year.  If you do not know your login information, you can visit the previous link and click “having problems logging in”, enter your email address, and the system will send you instructions on resetting your password; this will work even if you have not logged into MSM before.  Report cards will be published ONLY in My School Management this year, so you must log in to your account in order to view them.   We suggest that you ensure that you can log in well before the report card day on November 19.  If you have any login problems, please email Mr. Ellis (jellis@gcspei.ca) for more assistance.

Costumes for the Christmas Presentation – November 16

All students in grades 1-6 will need some type of clothing to complete their costume for filming our first ever online Christmas presentation. The grade four class will be shepherds and sheep. Shepherds are asked to bring a light blue, beige or grey solid long sleeve shirt and dark pants. Sheep will need a black or white long-sleeve shirt and dark pants. If you have any extra things like a walking stick, stuffed sheep, or a robe that you think would be suitable for a costume, please have your child bring these items to school for November 16. Please label each item so it can be returned to you. If you have any questions or concerns, please email jwilting@gcspei.ca. Thanks!
