We begin the second quarter this week!  Please take note of the following related to our grade two class this week.

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.

Operation Christmas Child Shoe Boxes

GCS is once again participating in Operation Christmas Child and students brought home shoe boxes to fill last week. Please consider blessing a child who would otherwise receive nothing this year! It is very easy to fill a box and it teaches our children what it means to help those in need. 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.

Assessments this week:

Due to the short week, we will have no tests this week.  We will begin spelling list # 9 this week, but our test will be on Thursday, November 18th.
