Happy Easter, everyone!

Christ is risen! I hope you have had a wonderful start to your weekend as we reflect on and celebrate our Savior.

This week, in addition to learning about how to multiply mixed numbers in Math, we will do some preparation for Canadian Achievement Tests, which students will write the following week. In Social Studies, we will continue learning about the animals of the Amazon and in Chapel we will discuss the importance of Jesus’ resurrection.

Mathletics – The Final Update!

The results are in! It was a very close competition between classes, especially grade four and five who were vying for the top spot. In the end, we finished the month long Mathletics March Madness Competition with 17,233 points, just ahead of the grade five class with 17,015. Way to go, grade four! We will be having a pizza party this coming Friday.

Congratulations to Lawrence, Lydia, and Arwen, the top scorers in grade four!

Canadian Achievement Test (CAT)

Next week, GCS students from Kindergarten through to Grade 12 will be writing a Canadian Achievement Test.  The CAT is a testing system that assesses the essential learning outcomes of the following basic skill areas: reading, language, spelling, and mathematics. Essentially, as well as being a tracker of learning abilities, the CAT also evaluates how well students perform in comparison to other students across Canada as a whole.

Food Drive

Grade 12 students will be collecting the boxes for the Food Drive early Tuesday morning. As such, we still have one more day to bring in dry goods to donate to the food bank.
