Another short week is in the books, and we now resume our regular schedule with four consecutive five-day weeks ahead of us. Please read the following announcements so that you are aware of what we will be doing this week.

Operation Christmas Child Shoe Boxes

A tremendous THANK YOU to everyone who filled a box and/or donated towards Operation Christmas Child through GCS! We collected over 130 boxes!!

Christmas Outreach Project

As we prepare to celebrate the Christmas season, GCS is so thankful to have an opportunity to bless others in our community.  This year, we will once again give back to the residents living at Prince Edward Home by collaboratively purchasing gifts for them to open on Christmas morning.

The Prince Edward Home is home to 120 residents, and collaboratively we can bless each one of them this Christmas season.  Each class is being asked to purchase specific items.  In addition to these items, any GCS student can also purchase the following items: body wash kits, shampoo kits, scarves, decorative pillows, throws/blankets, jewelry, and/or vouchers/gift cards for Tim’s, McDonalds, or Pat & The Elephant. All residents can use toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, and moisturizing lotions.

Our Grade 3 class will be responsible for hair care:  brushes, combs, shampoo/conditioner (male/female), and hair accessories.
