We are back in full swing here at GCS! It has been a week of getting back into our routines, and although the first two days were a little slow, we are now back at it! As we approach our first five-day week of the New Year, please take note of the following announcements.

School Hours Reminder

Please remember that our doors open at 8:35 and the class start time for Elementary students is 8:45. Students should be in class by this time. When arriving later, even by five minutes, your child is missing important information given at the start of the day which can be stressful for him/her. Elementary students are dismissed at 2:45 and should be picked up at that time. Please consider having your child join the After School Care program if you are unable to make the 2:45 pick up time.


We resumed with Spelling List 12 this week. The quiz for this list will take place on  Monday, January 9th.
