Hello all,

I hope everyone is staying dry on this rainy Sunday. This past week students learned about kindness and leadership through class discussions, a guest speaker, and random acts of kindness. Looking ahead, this week we will be focusing on science and technology. We will focus our language arts and math lessons around creating floor plans for tiny homes. Students will design a tiny home  to suit a character of their choosing from our novel study on Number the Stars. Below you will see more information on what is going on throughout the school for Science and Technology Week.

Science and Technology Week – October 18-22

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 robotics demonstration, a 3D design challenge, and chemistry stations. Please note that Wednesday, October 20 is Dress like a STEAM Professional Day (STEAM stands for ScienceTechnology, 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!

Test Folders

This Friday, students will receive their test folders. Please review each assessment and send it back to school with your child the following Monday.

All for now,

Mrs. MacDougall
