Looking forward to another great week with a wonderful group of Grade 4 students. Check out some announcements below for you and your child.
Cool Days & Warmer Clothing:
Please remember that as the cooler days of autumn arrive, students should come prepared with a light coat or sweater for outdoors. Students may also wish to have a sweater for class, as jackets are not permitted inside the classroom.
Elementary Cross-Country Event:
Students in grades 3-6 will be participating in an upcoming Cross Country Meet on Monday, October 7th. We welcome parents to join us in cheering on our students as they compete. Grades 3-4 will run the 1.5 km race while grades 5-6 will run 2 km. Students are asked to come prepared with running shoes, a GCS T-shirt, layers of clothing (in case it is cold), and sunscreen (in case it is hot!). Also, students should pack a healthy snack and water bottle. We will be leaving the school at 9 AM and travelling by bus to the Terry Fox Sports Complex in Cornwall. Some parent volunteers would be helpful as we will not all fit on the bus. We will return to school by noon.
Additional information will be sent home with your child next week in the form of a permission slip. Please return the form to your child’s homeroom teacher.
PD Day- No Classes
As important as it is for your children to be learning and growing academically, so to is the case for us teachers. On Friday, October 11th, students will not have classes as the teachers from GCS participate in a professional development day.
