Hello Parents,

We are thankful to be almost half way through the school year and still have the opportunity to have in class learning.  We pray that this will continue throughout this year.  We’ve been having a great year in grade two!  Please take note of the following items that relate to Grade Two this week:

GCS Spirit Day

This Wednesday, January 20th, will be another GCS Spirit Day.  All students are welcome and encouraged to wear GCS apparel to school on Wednesday to show their school spirit!

Dressing for the Weather

Just a friendly reminder that all children should be coming to school prepared for outdoor play.  Please ensure your child has a hat, two pairs of mittens, a warm jacket, snow pants, and boots.
