April Updates

April Updates

As we finish out the final weeks of the third quarter at GCS, please take note of the following announcements:

Re-enrollment Month

April is re-enrollment month at GCS.  As our school community continues to grow, it is increasingly important for families to pay their registration fees as early as possible.  Please see Ms. Fanning in the office to make your $200 re-enrollment payment.

Family Fun Run

Attention Knights! Are you ready to get fit and have some fun? The GCS Family Fun Run is coming up very soon! Grace Christian School will be hosting their annual Family Fun Run, which is a 5k running/walking event that encourages physical fitness in our school and brings the community together, on Saturday, May 4th. There will be registration forms sent home with your children over the coming weeks, with early registration resulting in a discounted price. Please return the form and money to your students’ homeroom teachers. All the proceeds will go towards our Plant a Seed Campaign. We hope to see you all there at the GCS Family Fun Run!

**Tomorrow is the last day to get in on the early bird special!

Reading and Numbers

The children were lined up for recess one day this week when I heard, “You are FIRST, you are SECOND, you are THIRD” … up to TENTH. We had just introduced this concept last week and the children ran with it.  What a delight to a teacher’s ears!

Thank you for continuing to go over letters and numbers with your children at home.  It makes such a big difference when families encourage and delight in their children’s successes.  We are now reading sentences with one and two vowel rule words such as:

Ben can run fast.

Sam has a cat.

The rat ate the pie.

The children are counting to and recognizing numbers 1-100. you could ask the question: “What comes after the number 45?”

Thank you for investing in your children’s kindergarten experience.

**Please send your child with rubber boots or continue to send them in winter boots as some of our play areas are not dry this time of year.
