What a wonderful week we had! The students all ran their best in the Cross Country Race and made me very proud. We also had a great afternoon last Friday wearing PJs and sipping fancy hot chocolate to celebrate earning all the “I Like Its”!

This week we look forward to learning about the Great Lakes Region, how to spot fake news, how to average, and multiplication with three-digit factors, along with lots of items in the other classes. It is also our annual Science and Technology Week when we celebrate God’s wondrous creation. On Wednesday we will be having Dress Like a Scientist Day when students are encouraged to come to school dressed as a professional who uses science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in their career field!

Headphones for School

Please ensure your child has a pair of headphones in school for when we do certain listening activities with the Chromebooks. An inexpensive pair of earbuds will suffice and can be purchased at the Dollarama.

A Note from Mrs. Wilting about Christmas

“We are off to a great start in music class this year at GCS. We are enjoying listening to music, moving our bodies and playing instruments during class. Although it may seem early we are beginning to prepare for the Christmas season. Even though it may look a little different this year due to the Covid-19 regulations we are still going to celebrate, Jesus, the true reason for the season! 

This year our students will have a wonderful opportunity to do something unique in the arts and to participate in yet another type of creative learning experience. The elementary students will be producing a narrated, pantomimed film entitled “Make Room for Jesus” as our Christmas presentation.

As usual there are a few moving parts to make this presentation come together and we need your help.  We are asking that all elementary students come to school dressed in a dark bottom and a plain white top on Wednesday, October 28.  We are planning to film a specific outdoor scene during the school day. If the weather is inclement we will film on Thursday, October 29.  We are looking forward to beginning production.

Please contact me at jwilting@gcspei.ca if you need help getting these items or if you have any other concerns. I am looking forward to working with the students to create something memorable once again!” – Julie Wilting
