Dear GCS Grade 6 Family,

We had another great week of learning, and we also started to print our 3D designs!  Ask your child for more information about our current 3D printing plans with the time we have in our Engineering period.

In Math we are concluding our factoring unit and moving into our fractions unit.  Time goes by quickly!  Quarter 2 will bring more challenging math for the students, as quarter 1 was mostly review material.  This past week in Social Studies we learned what life was like back at home during World War 2.


We are off to a great start in music class this year at GCS. We are enjoying listening to music, moving our bodies and playing instruments during class. Although it may seem early we are beginning to prepare for the Christmas season. Even though it may look a little different this year due to the Covid-19 regulations we are still going to celebrate, Jesus, the true reason for the season! 

This year our students will have a wonderful opportunity to do something unique in the arts and to participate in yet another type of creative learning experience. The elementary students will be producing a narrated, pantomimed film entitled “Make Room for Jesus” as our Christmas presentation.

As usual, there are a few moving parts to make this presentation come together and we need your help.  We are asking that all elementary students come to school dressed in a dark bottom and a plain white top on Wednesday, October 28.  We are planning to film a specific outdoor scene during the school day. If the weather is inclement we will film on Thursday, October 29.  We are looking forward to beginning production.

Please contact Mrs. Wilting at if you need help getting these items or if you have any other concerns. I am looking forward to working with the students to create something memorable once again!

Below is a list of assignments and assessments for the upcoming week:


Daily Math homework (checked on Thursdays)

Language Arts: Finish Intro for your Personal Narrative

Wear dark bottom and white top for Music – Wednesday, October 28th


Math Test – Wednesday, October 28th

Have a great weekend!

Mr. Olsen
