Dear GCS Families:
Welcome to fourth quarter! I am so pleased that we have been able to continue with in-person learning this far into the school year. What a blessing!
This 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 in reading, language, spelling, and mathematics. Grade four students will also be starting an Amazon Animals project in Social Studies and creating colorful painted birds in Art.
Report Cards and Parent-Teacher Interviews
The third quarter report cards are being published in My School Management (MSM) this Thursday, April 15, like the other previous quarter report cards were earlier this year. In order to view your child’s report card, you must ensure that you can log in to MSM (https://gcs.myschoolmanagement.com). Report cards will not be printed this year.
Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Thursday evening (April 15) for grade JK to 6 parents from 5-7pm and Friday morning (April 16) for Grade 7-12 parents from 9:30am-12pm. Any parents of ESL students in grades 7-12 are to meet with Dr. Huizing concerning all of the student’s subjects. As we have done in previous years, we will use SignUp.com, an online web-based platform, for parents registering for conferences with their child’s teachers. Here is the link for the elementary sign-up: SIGN UP HERE
Please remember that these conferences are an important opportunity for parents and teachers to partner together in the student’s academic, social, and emotional success. Although GCS takes pride in the partnership between parents and teachers, due to COVID-19 required guidelines, we ask that parents only schedule conferences with teachers should there be something specific they need to discuss with those teachers. Note that there are a very limited number of conference slots available for each teacher for in-person conferences (10 minute length). If you wish to schedule a meeting with a teacher outside of these conference times, please contact the teacher directly to arrange a day/time.
GSC Summer Camps
Grace Christian School has ignited the passion in our students to discover the world around them through exploration and investigation. We are thrilled to extend the GCS learning experience beyond the school year calendar and beyond our current student body.
In July 2021, Grace Christian School will host its first Knight’s Summer Camps for students entering Gr. 1- 6 in September 2021. These half-day camps will be led by GCS staff, many of whom have been recognized on the regional, national, and international stage for their work in science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics, and athletics.
Campers will work collaboratively and engage in advanced learning activities that will allow them to develop the 21st-century skills of leaders, thinkers, and innovators.
To learn more about each camp, and to register your child for the 2021 Knight’s Summer Camps, please visit the https://www.gcspei.ca/gcssummercamps/ below. Limited seats are available in each camp, so register early to secure your child’s spot!
As there are CATs this week, students in grade four will not be assigned any additional assessments.
