Welcome to a new week!  As we begin to feel Christmas Break approaching, I pray that you will all remember the true Reason for the Season!  Please take note of the following announcements:

Christmas Outreach Project

Last week, GCS students had the opportunity to bring in a variety of gifts to give to the 120 seniors living in the Prince Edward Home in Charlottetown. Our class brought in a generous haul of jigsaw puzzles and puzzle books for the residents. I want to thank everyone who contributed to this outreach and let you know how appreciated your gift was to the Prince Edward Home.

Coming Up… Christmas Theme Days and Half-Day Christmas Party

Stay tuned for more information on our upcoming Christmas Theme Days! Throughout our final week of classes (Dec.14-18), all students are encouraged to participate in a variety of fun dress-up days. On Friday, Dec.18, we will be having a Christmas party from 8:45-12:00. Students are to be picked up at 12:00 and then can enjoy their Christmas break.

Christmas Production

We invite you this holiday season to join the elementary students of GCS as we present the real story of Christmas in our first ever online Christmas production – Make Room in Your Heart. Be on the lookout for this video which will be posted on December 11.
