It is that time again. Report cards will be going home this Wednesday instead of the usual Thursday because of Good Friday. This means we are now into the 4th quarter and have a lot planned for the students of GCS. Please read through the following announcements:
Parent Teacher Conferences:
Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Wednesday evening (April 17) from 6-9pm and Thursday morning (April 18) from 10am-12pm. As we did in the first half of the year, we will use SignUp.com, an online web-based platform, for parents registering for conferences with their child’s teachers.

Track & Field Training
Mondays and Fridays, starting April 15, Track and Field practices will be held from 3:15-4:00 at GCS. Students in grades 3-12 are invited to participate and should come dressed in proper fitness attire and sneakers.
We are thankful for our parent volunteers who have committed to running 2 basketball camps this year. Camps will run on Wednesday’s beginning on April 17- May 15. The grade 1-4 camp will be held at GCS from 3:15-4:15 with Mrs. Able, while students in grades 5-8 will require drives to ICS to participate in their camp from 3:30-5:00 with Mr. Rancourt.
As we take the time to reflect on Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection this coming weekend, it is our prayer that you gain a deeper appreciation and love for the Lord. Please note that in honour of this, we will not have classes on Good Friday or on Easter Monday. Classes will resume Tuesday, April 23rd.
