It’s hard to believe we are down to our last week of school for 2018.  It’s an exciting time of year for students as they anticipate Christmas break.  In all the excitement over the next couple of weeks, I pray that you will take time to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas; a celebration of the birth of our Saviour Jesus Christ.

Here are a few announcements for this this coming week:

Christmas Musical Online:

Grades 3-6 did an incredible job delivering their songs and lines during their Christmas Musical last week.  We are blessed to have this opportunity to share what Christmas is all about.  If you were unable to attend the performance live, or if you’d simply like to watch it again, the entire performance can viewed on our GCS YouTube channel:

Christmas Theme Days:

Throughout the final week of classes students are invited to dress up in their finest Christmas attire to help close out this portion of the school year.

  • Monday: Ugly Christmas Sweater Day
  • Tuesday: Pajama Day
  • Wednesday: Red & Green Day
  • Thursday: Christmas Character Day
  • Friday: Christmas Hat Day

Christmas Break Tidy:

Please remind your children to take all their personal belongings home over the holidays.  This includes their snow-pants, mittens, hats, scarves, extra footwear, water bottles, and any poster-boards and projects they may have taken in to their classroom.  Any of these items left behind will be donated or disposed of.

Library Books:

Students are being asked to return all their library books before Christmas Break.  If you are unsure if you have returned all your resources, please see Mrs. Biech early this coming week.

Half-Day Of School: 

This Friday, December 21st, students will be dismissed from school at 12:15 to begin their Christmas Break.  Classes will resume on January 7th at 9:00 AM.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Mrs. Barton
