Good afternoon, GCS families:
And here we are, heading into the last week of school! What a blessing and privilege it has been to work with your children over the year and to be part of their spiritual, academic, social, and emotional growth! I look forward to seeing how God will mold and use them in the future!
This week we will be completing the Dream House Project in Math, having a bit more fun with coding Lego creations in Digital Literacy, and participating in some fun-filled year-end activities!
Library Book Hunt
We are 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.
As a celebration of the end of the school year, students in grades 4-6 will enjoy a wet and wild afternoon of fun on Monday, June 14th. We will play classic water games such as Water Balloon Toss, Dodge-Sponge, and Duck Duck Dunk, and will even have a Slip and Slide. Students are asked to come prepared with swimwear and a towel. As we are still abiding by the school dress code, boys are asked to wear a t-shirt with their swim shorts and girls will need to cover their bathing suits with a t-shirt and shorts. Students may also take sunscreen if they tend to burn and watershoes or sandals that they do not mind getting wet if they do not want to run barefoot through the grass. Please note that students will not be allowed back into the school if they are wet and will be returning home on the soggy side.
A Final Class Party
After we do some serious cleaning on Wednesday, we will be having a small party to end our last afternoon as a class together. Students are welcome to bring in treats to share.
Year-End School Closing Event
The Grade 5 class has been working hard the past couple of weeks planning a year-end carnival for the elementary students at GCS. To help cover some of the costs involved with the event, we are asking each elementary student to bring in $2.00 before June 18th. This will go towards snacks, drinks, door prizes, and balloons. After gathering in the chapel for school closing remarks from Mrs. MacNeill, students will head outside to our back field for carnivals games and field games. Students can look forward to balloon games, ring toss, face painting, beanbag toss, various tag games, a candy jar count guessing game, and door prizes! If the weather is not suitable for outdoor activities, we have a modified plan to run indoors. The event will finish at 11:30am in time for parents to pick up their children at 11:45am. We are looking forward to an amazing day as we close out the 2020-2021 school year.
Just kidding. There are no assessments.
