Dear GCS Grade 6 Families,

We had a great week in Grade 6!

This week we started studying angles and students were able to spend more time learning to use their protractors.

This week in Social Studies students were working on the last part of their Government Scrapbook.  Students need to analyze a news article and summarize the 5Ws of the article in their slideshow.  This is due on Monday, May 16th.

Dress Code Reminder

With the change in seasons, and as your children continue to grow out of their clothing that fit them last fall, we wish to provide you with this reminder.
As stated in the GCS Handbook the school’s overall dress code standard is modest, clean, neat, and appropriate. Shorts and skirts must not be shorter than just above the knee, which is typically to the tips of the fingers on most children. Girls are permitted to wear sleeveless shirts as long as the straps are wider than three finger widths (please no shirts with thin spaghetti straps). Clothing with a rebellious or negative message are considered dress code violations.

All kindergarten and elementary students must have a second pair of shoes to be worn inside. According to provincial regulations, kindergarten and elementary students are required to wear socks at all times while at school. Sandals are not permitted for this reason.

We are thrilled to see our elementary students wearing GCS apparel on a daily basis. We are even more excited when we see our parents embracing their GCS pride and purchasing clothes for themselves. For those wishing to purchase GCS apparel, please visit one of our online clothing stores at New items are being added regularly.
