Good evening Parents,

It’s hard to believe that we have only two weeks left before Christmas break.  In Social Studies this week we will finish our study of the Canadian Shield region.  In Language Arts we will continue our Novel Study of S.E. Hinton’s “The Puppy Sister”  with a focus on a character sketch of the main character.  We will also be writing an Christmas acrostic poem.

THANK YOU! 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 crayons,  makers, colouring books and note pads for the residents. I want to thank everyone who contributed to this outreach and let you know how impactful 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, students from K-12 are encouraged to participate in a variety of fun dress-up days. On Friday, 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.
