Short week this week but, as always, lots happening!

Christmas Concert

A reminder that Mrs. Wilting has requested that all students have a long sleeve black top, black pants, and a pair of black socks for the recording of this year’s Christmas Presentation. All items should be sent to school in a Ziploc bag labelled with your child’s name by Tuesday, November 9th. Recording begins on Wednesday, November 10th.

Remembrance Day Service

On Wednesday, our class will be presenting “In Flanders Fields” for the ceremony.  Please continue to practice the poem so they are prepared.  Students do not need to wear their special event dress for the entire day.  I will be sure to allow them time to clean up or change prior to the service at the end of the day.

Operation Christmas Child Shoe Boxes

GCS is once again participating in Operation Christmas Child and students brought home shoe boxes to fill last week.  This is another wonderful opportunity for our students to look beyond themselves to the needs of others around the world.  When filling the box, please remember to add the $10 to help cover the shipping costs (charitable donations of $20 or more will receive a tax receipt from Samaritan’s Purse). We are asking that boxes be sent in to school by Wednesday, November 17th.
