Grade 5 families,

This quarter is flying by as we now have only 3 weeks left until Christmas break. Tuesday will be the last day to bring in hair brushes, combs, shampoo, and conditioner for the Christmas Outreach Project. Please read the announcements below for more information. 

Christmas Outreach Project (Dec.1)

As we prepare to celebrate the Christmas season, we are so thankful to have an opportunity to bless others in our community. This year, we will give back to the residents living at Prince Edward Home by collaboratively purchasing gifts for them to open on Christmas morning.

In the past, students from GCS would visit several Island senior homes to sing Christmas carols and deliver warm Christmas wishes. Due to the limitations brought about by COVID-19, our students have been unable to physically visit. However, this Christmas, each class will be asked to purchase specific items as per the requests of the residents at The PE Home. The gift baskets with these items will be delivered to the care home before December 5th, in time for the coordinators to quarantine the items before packaging them for the residents to open on Christmas morning.  

The Prince Edward Home is home to 120 residents, and collaboratively we can bless each one of them this Christmas season.  Your class is being asked to purchase hairbrushes, combs, shampoo and conditioner. In addition to these items, any GCS student can also purchase the following items:  scarves, decorative pillows, throws/blankets, jewelry, and/or vouchers/gift cards for Tim’s, McDonalds, or Pat & The Elephant.
