Good evening, Parents.

The students did a great job recording the Christmas play last week.  We look forward to seeing it put together online in the future.   Please take note of the following items related to grade two this week.

Operation Christmas Child Shoe Boxes

Thank you for the generosity of all those who filled a shoe box.   As a school, we were able to fill 130 boxes for Operation Christmas Child!

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.

The Grade 2 class has been asked to bring in stuffed animals, baby dolls, teddy bears (individuals living with dementia love these gifts more than you may know!)

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. Please note that we understand not every family may be able to participate. This outreach is not intended to put financial pressure on families who may already be stretched during the Christmas season.
