Week of December 5th Grade 5

Dear GCS Grade 5 Families,

Only two weeks left before Christmas break!  As well, the Elementary Christmas Program happens this Thursday. There will be one show at 1:30 PM and another at 6:30 PM.

​​Christmas Outreach Project

As we prepare to celebrate the Christmas season, GCS is so thankful to have another opportunity to bless others in our community.  This year, we will once again give back to the residents living at Prince Edward Home by collaboratively purchasing gifts for them to open on Christmas morning.

This year our class is responsible for collecting bath and body items such as: body wash, hand lotion, bath balms, deodorants, disposable razors, powder, toothpaste, toothbrush. Items should be delivered to our classroom before December 8th.

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.

Tissue Boxes

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