Hello GCS Grade 6 Family!

Thank you for your patience this winter season. With a storm day on Friday and the power outage on Monday, we have had a unique week!

PD Day, Weather Permitting:

As indicated on our online school year calendar, we have a currently scheduled Professional Development Day Friday, January 31st. However, if school is cancelled throughout that week, this PD Day will be cancelled and we will have classes to allow high school students to have time to complete their exams.  Please watch our social media accounts for any updates regarding this date.

Skating & Skiing For Elementary:

Although an official permission slip outlining all the details of the skating and skiing events for elementary will be sent home with your child in the future, I wanted to take a moment to give you the heads up that we will once again be participating in these activities throughout the months of February and March.

Students are not required to have their own ski gear, nor are they obligated to attend this event.  Elementary students in grades 3 – 6 will ski  twice throughout the winter months at Brookvale Provincial Ski Park and lessons will be provided for students who require them.  More details provided in the future.

Students that wish to participate in skating must have their own skates and helmet.  Students are not obligated to participate, however should they wish to, please make arrangements for them to acquire the proper skating equipment. Elementary students in grades 1 – 6 will skate two times throughout the winter months.

Wish list:

Thank you to those who brought more Lysol wipes and tissues! We still need a few more of each to re-stock our supply. If you haven’t already, could send your child with another tissue box and anti-bacterial wipe container? The Grade 6 class would appreciate it!
