Last week marked the end of the first quarter at GCS. 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. Please take note of a couple announcements below and some important dates to remember. 

My School Management

Each family has access to GCS’s online school management system (MSM) at  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 ( for more assistance. 

Costumes for the Christmas Presentation – November 16th

All students in grades 1-6 will need some type of clothing to complete their costume for filming. The grade five class will be dressed as the Wiseman. Please have your child bring in a purple, red, royal blue or bright green long sleeved solid t-shirt, dark pants and sandals. 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 Thanks!  

Dates to Remember:

  • Wednesday, Nov. 11 – Remembrance Day (No School)
  • Thursday, Nov. 12 – PD Day (No School)
  • Friday, Nov. 13 – PD Day (No School)
  • Thursday, Nov.19 – Report Card Day and Parent-Teacher Conferences (5-7pm)

That’s all for now. See you next week.
