Dear GCS Grade 6 Families,

We had a great week that concluded with Fall Parties at GCS.  For their Fall Party activity, Grade 6 completed a Photo Scavenger Hunt with their reading buddies!  Much fun was had!

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 students name on it and please bring it into school by Thursday, Dec. 1.  Students are to give the bag to the classroom teacher.

We are looking forward to sharing our work with you. Thank you for your cooperation and help with the costuming. If you have any concerns please email Mrs. Wilting at
