Good afternoon Parents,
It has been a great weekend to get outside and enjoy the nice weather.  I am so grateful that we live in such a beautiful province where we can enjoy  God’s creation.  Please take note of the following announcements for this week.

My School Management

If you have not already done so, you can access your child’s report card by logging on to GCS’s online school management system (MSM) at  Logging into it will allow parents to view upcoming assignments, tuition balances, student grades (in select courses in elementary), and view quarterly report cards this year. Report cards are published ONLY in My School Management this year, so you must log in to your account in order to view them.  If you do not know your login information, you can visit the previous link and click “having problems logging in”, enter your email address, and the system will send you instructions on resetting your password; this will work even if you have not logged into MSM before.  If you have any login problems, please email Mr. Ellis ( for more assistance.

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

When COVID-19 first impacted our province back in the Spring of 2020, some of the most vulnerable were left without the opportunity to leave their homes. Many seniors were also left without the companionship of their families, and therefore, they relied heavily on support, love, and generosity of the caretakers inside their care homes.  Travel restrictions will mean many residents may not have family members visiting them over the holidays.  We are helping make Christmas a little happier for residents by collecting some basic, low cost items. Our class will be collecting: Colouring books, crayons, pencil crayons, markers, sketch pads, pens, pencils, and stationary kits. Other classes will be collecting other needed items. Students are encouraged to make this a true giving opportunity by using their own money (from their allowance, etc.) to purchase some items to give this Christmas. Learning through service allows our students to move their focus from themselves to the needs of othersItems need to be brought in to school by Tuesday, Dec. 1.
