Well, September certainly flew by! Welcome to October, everyone!
There are so many things planned for this month. Please mark your calendars with all the information that is relevant to your family:
Elementary Cross Country Event:
We welcome parents to join us in cheering on our grade 3-6 students as they compete in the annual Cross Country Meet on Wednesday, October 10th. 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 sunny!). Also, students should pack a healthy snack and water bottle. We will be leaving the school at 9AM and travelling by bus to the Terry Fox Sports Complex in Cornwall. We will return to school by noon. GO KNIGHTS GO!
Grace Christian School has dedicated an entire week to celebrating a love for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Throughout the week of October 15th-19th, students in K-12 will participate in several activities to enrich their learning in these four disciplines. Please watch for a full schedule in the coming weeks.
