Good evening,

I hope you all enjoyed this beautiful, yet cool, weekend.  You all work so hard during the week, it’s so nice to get a chance to take a break with our families.   I am so proud of how hard each of you are working each day.

Zoom Calls:

This week, you will be invited to join the class for two Zoom calls.  One will be on Tuesday at 10:00, and the other Thursday at 10:00.    An invitation will be sent to your email tomorrow evening for Tuesday’s call.  It was so nice to see all of you and hear your voices, last week. I look forward to connecting twice this week.

Wellness Wednesday

Wednesday, January 26th,  all GCS staff, students, and families are being asked to unplug from their remote learning responsibilities and to focus on their spiritual, emotional, physical, and social well-being.  We encourage families to consider ways in which you can recharge during this challenging time of isolation due to COVID-19 restrictions in our province by creating a bucket list of activities that you can do together to promote overall wellness.

If you need a bit of inspiration to come up with things to do there are lots of suggestions here:  

It’s a great day for some family time and to go out and enjoy all that winter brings in PEI.  If your family enjoys hiking or walking there are lots of Island trails to explore.  Bonshaw trails or Winter River Trails are a couple of my family’s favorites.

Throughout the period of remote-learning, students can expect to see daily posts  from their elective courses based on the schedule below:
