Well, hello June! It’s hard to believe we’ve reached the last month of school! It has certainly been my immense pleasure to help your children learn and grow this year into the young men and ladies God has called them to be. Now to finish off the school year strong!

Sports Awards Ceremony

Everyone is welcome to join us this Thursday, June 7th at 2:00 PM for our annual Sports Awards Ceremony during which we will celebrate our GCS athletes and coaches.

Year-end Trip to Emmanuel Bible Camp

On Thursday, June 14th, students in grades 1-6 will be travelling by bus to Emmanuel Bible Camp for their year-end trip. They will enjoy a variety of camp activities such as pellet range, archery, rock wall climbing, sports, crafts, camp-wide games, swimming and canoeing (water sports will be only for students in grades 3-6). Students should pack a lunch that does not need to be heated. Also, they should come prepared with bug spray, sunscreen, a hat, layered clothing (in case it becomes cold), swim wear (for students grades 3-6), and sneakers. Students also wishing to purchase a small treat from the tuck shop, should bring their own money.  Items such as chocolate bars, ice cream, chips, candy, juice, etc are $1.50 each.

The bus will be leaving at 9:00, so please be at school on time. Students are asked to bring $2.00 to cover the cost of the bus. If you are interested in chaperoning, or have any questions, please feel free to contact me. This should be a great time to relax and have fun in the great outdoors!

Take note that we have a rain date scheduled for Friday, June 15.

Water Craziness

It’s finally nice out and students are getting a little stir-crazy. And, quite frankly, so is their teacher. So, for the last hour of the day on Friday, June 15, we will head outside for a little of what I like to call water craziness! We’ll play some wet and wild games such as the classic Duck Duck Dunk, plus we’ll have water balloons for a nice water fight. Students should come with either a bathing suit to put on or a change of clothes and a towel. I am afraid they will not be able to participate if they forget their extras. Also, sunscreen is highly recommended!

Please note that we will have to move this event to Monday, June 18, if our trip to Emmanuel is rescheduled for Friday.

Library Book Hunt

We’re on the search for any missing library books! Please ensure that they are returned as soon as possible so that Mrs. Biech can close up library for the year.
