We have arrived at the final week of the 2018 school year. Time has gone by so incredibly fast, and I have been blessed to have each and every student through it all. As we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, I pray that you and your children have a wonderful Christmas break. Please note the following announcements:

Christmas Musical Online:

I am incredibly proud of all the hard-working students who committed to delivering their songs and lines during our 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 be viewed on our GCS YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vq01B-mWuMI

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 into 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 very merry Christmas and blessed new year!
