Dear GCS Grade 6 Families,

We’re in our final week before Christmas break!  

Thank you so much for your partnership with GCS for our Christmas production!  It is a wonderful learning and bonding experience for the students!

Tissue Boxes

With all the sniffles going around lately, we have almost run out of tissues in the classroom.  If you are able to send a box with your child to replenish our supply, Grade 6 would greatly appreciate it! 

Cooler Temperatures

As we experience more winter-like temperatures and weather conditions, please remind your children to come prepared for the outdoors. Students are encouraged to have a warm hat and mittens in their backpacks every day and to come dressed in a warm jacket and pants. Snow pants and winter boots will also help your children stay warm and dry as we enjoy the winter weather and fun in the snow.

For students who arrive prior to 8:45 AM, please note that students will not be permitted to go inside the school to gather their winter gear. Please arrive dressed for the winter conditions.
