Good afternoon, Parents.

It’s been another beautiful weekend!   Please take note of the following items related to our grade two class this week:

Language:  This week we begin list # 27 in our spelling with our test on Friday, May 20th.   We will begin a fiction Narrative unit.

Math: We will continue to study perimeter, begin learning the 5 times tables, and learn how to borrow across 0’s.

Social Studies: We have completed learning all the regions of Canada.  Next week, on Thursday, May 26th we will have a short quiz on the names and location of each physical region in Canada.

Gym:  Grades 1 and 2 are learning a performance routine to the song “Here With Me” by Gateway Kids Worship. They will be presenting their routine to the elementary on June 1st. Please encourage your child to practice what they know at home as they prepare for their performance.

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.
