Hello parents!

We have a full fun week of learning, presentations, dress-up days, and activities to finish off the 2020 year!

Social Studies Presentations

Christmas Around the World presentations will be Wednesday and Thursday of this week. Students should already have their rough copies complete and be finishing up their good copies. We will have a bit more time to work on this in class tomorrow, however any outstanding work and the creative portion of the project needs to be completed at home. Just a reminder that students only have to complete ONE creative part of their project, but they are permitted to do more than one if they so choose. Students will be required to post a practice on Seesaw for homework on Tuesday. I am looking forward to seeing these presentations!

Just for Fun – Christmas Theme Days

Well, Christmas is a-comin’! And here at GCS we like to get in the holiday spirit by being a little goofy!

Throughout our final full week of classes, students from K-12 are encouraged to participate in a variety of fun dress-up days.

Monday: Festive Colors and Christmas Mask – Celebrate the season by choosing Christmas colours for your school dress code outfit today. Wear your red shirt, green sweater, white, silver or gold clothing and accessories to participate.  Complete the look with a Christmas-themed non-medical mask.

Tuesday: Christmas Luau and Christmas Hat Day – Want to celebrate Christmas in the tropics?  Wear a Hawaiian print shirt and top it with a Santa hat, reindeer antlers, an elf hat or a Christmas-themed toque as we count down to Christmas.

Wednesday: Christmas Sweater Day – Wear your ugly (or beautiful!) Christmas sweater. Choose one that is ready-made or use your imagination to create your own unique design.

Thursday: Christmas Pajama Day – Live the excitement of Christmas morning by wearing your pajamas to school.  Festive designs are great, but all pajamas are welcome.  Remember: modest, clean, neat and appropriate is always the expectation.

Friday: Half-Day Christmas Party! Reminder that students are to be picked up at 12:00 on this day.

Let’s finish the year off strong!
