Thank you for celebrating Science and Tech Week with us at GCS last week. We have begun our Fractions unit in Math and are wrapping up sentence diagramming in Language Arts. In Social Studies we have quickly travelled through 5,000 years of history, studying famous people, inventions, and events. We’ll finish our world history overview this week in the Information Age. Please read the following announcements. 

Christmas Concert Preparations 

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 Mrs. Wilting 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!
