Week of Nov. 4 in Grade One
This week we will be working on our second spelling test. The spelling list and homework will be sent home on Monday. Please return the sheet on Friday and indicate which four activities you did with your child at home. We will be taking a break from our sight words homework while students adjust to having weekly spelling tests. Library day is Tuesday. Students are working on Bible Verse #2. I look forward to another wonderful week ahead!
Remembrance Day Service
Friday, November 8th, marks the date for Grace Christian School’s annual Remembrance Day service. The service will begin at 2:00 pm and last for approximately one hour. We welcome GCS parents to attend the service.
We are asking for your help in inviting veterans and current serving members of the military to the service. If you know that a veteran or service person will be in attendance as a result of your invitation, please contact Mrs. Thompson at email@example.com and give her the individual’s name, rank, and field of service.
Also, Mr. Ellis is once again preparing a Power Point to be played during the service; therefore, we are soliciting photographs of family members who served during the World Wars, the Korean War, the Afghanistan conflict, or in peace-keeping. Any photos received will be scanned and returned in a timely manner. We understand that they are family treasures. Photos can also be scanned at home and e-mailed to the school at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate the name, rank, field of service, arena and time served (e.g. Corporal Joe Smith, army, France, 1939-1945) of the individual pictured, as well as the relationship to your student (e.g. great-uncle of Katie Jones, grade three). Please note that photos shared in previous years are on file and do not need to be re-submitted, but, if adjustments or corrections are required, please send that information. New photos and/or adjustments must be received by Mr. Ellis no later than 3pm, Monday, November 5th.
Online Lunch Program
We are excited to announce the implementation of our new online ordering and payment platform, Green Apple Pay. This platform will allow parents and students to order items from the Milk & Lunch Program. Green Apple Pay will be the only method of ordering from the milk and lunch program so it is important that you take the time to log in and set up your parent account. Please follow these four simple steps to start the login process:
- Click the following link https://gcs.greenapplepay.com/site/request-password-reset and enter your email address (the one registered with GCS).
- Green Apple Pay will then send the password reset link to that email.
- Click the link in your email to navigate to the page where you set-up your new password.
- Once your password has been reset, you can login to https://gcs.greenapplepay.com using your email as the username and using your new password.
