Week of October 17th in Grade 5

Dear GCS Grade 5 Families,

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Planting Kindness 

Next week we will be delivering our gifts to the Cancer Treatment Centre at QEH. I wish to thank all of you for your generous donations!  If you still want to bring in a non-perishable dessert item, there is still time!

Elementary Christmas Production:

We are very excited to announce that we are in the beginning stages of preparing our annual Christmas presentation. The elementary students have been reading through scripts and learning songs in class the last few weeks. This year we will be presenting “Christmas at Bethlehem Gulch” a children’s musical with a western feel about the coming of the Saviour written by Pam Andrews.

We are anticipating a live, in-house, concert as we have done in years past. The musical has an “Old West” theme, and we will need a few items brought in for concert dress. All students are required to bring in a pair of dark or light jeans and a multi-coloured plaid shirt. If students have items such as western vests, chaps, boots, kerchiefs, or cowboy hats please add them as they may be used for the main cast. Please refrain from bringing in holsters or plastic guns. Place items in a bag labeled with your student’s name on it and please bring it into school by Thursday, Dec. 1.
