Week of October 15th in Grade One

I’d like to wish you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving. We have so much to be thankful for! As we continue to learn about our local community in our Social Studies class, we will be focusing on practical ways we can make a difference and share God’s love right where we live through simple acts of kindness. One way we’d like to do this is by collecting some items to donate to our local food bank. We will be collecting non-perishables and would welcome contributions. This week we will be learning to count by tens, the value of a dime, and continue practicing addition and subtraction concepts. Our sight words for this week are: after, any, by, fly, and giving. Students will begin learning Bible Verse #2.

Wishlist: Our class is about to run out of hand sanitizer and we would be very grateful if anyone would like to donate some more (pump-style) bottles for the class.

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. (1 Chronicles 16:34)


No Class on Monday:

Just a reminder that Monday, Oct. 14th, is a Canadian holiday.  We will not have classes.  Classes will resume on Tuesday, Oct. 15th at 9:00 AM.

Science & Technology Week:

It’s that time of year again when staff and students of GCS celebrate our Creator and the wonder of science! We have lots of activities planned for next week, including a virtual dementia simulation, robotics challenges, the planting of hydroponic gardens, and boat building labs. Please note that Tuesday, October 15th is Dress like a STEAM Professional Day (STEAM standing for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math). That means that your child can come to school dressed as a person in any occupation that would use these disciplines. It is sure to be a fun-filled week of learning.
