We are counting down the days until Christmas break, but first, we are hopeful you will join us for our annual Christmas musical at GCS.
Christmas Concert Reminders:
This year we are very pleased to be presenting the musical Straight Outta Bethlehem on Thursday, December 13th, with a matinee performance at 1:30 pm and an evening performance at 6:30 pm. Students are asked to return to school for the evening performance by 6 PM to prepare for the stage. As family, you will want to grab your sit early too as we are expecting a very large audience. Please take note that the dress code for the concert is black and white with accents of gold (girls in dresses or skirts, and a dress shirt and dark pants for the boys – no jeans please).
The focus of this musical is about how God adopts us into His family. Throughout the story the message is clear that no one is unwanted, no one is alone, and no one is an orphan, because God has bought us with the gift of his Son. This is a powerful message for children! God sent his Son as a baby straight outta Bethlehem to grow up, to redeem us and to die in our place. What a reason to celebrate!
If you cannot attend, the performance will be livestreamed on the GCS YouTube channel and uploaded within 24 hours. Please tune in to: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsGOT418HR91UY8cXSOprVA
Christmas Blessings & Bricks:
It is that time of year to bless others and donate to programs that are close to your heart. Our “Buy A Brick – Bricks of Honour” campaign is in full swing. What a wonderful way to bless the school and someone that you admire by buying a brick in their name and gifting it to GCS. Bricks can be purchased for $250. If you know someone who deserves to be honored in this way please see Mrs. MacNeill or contact Miss Arthurs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Christmas Service Project:
This year, the Grade Three class will be creating sweet treat bags to be handed out at the soup kitchen along with the Christmas dinner. Special thanks to Mrs. Paquet for partnering with us to help make this project a success. Each student is asked to bring in $2 to go toward the purchase of treats for the bags that will be given out. Thank you so much for your assistance!
