Dear Parents of Grade 3 students,

Well, that certainly was a strange week! I would like to thank you all for your flexibility as we navigated through having to close for three days. Please rest assured that we are working to catch up on those days!

Meet the Teacher:

This coming Monday (September 20), GCS will be hosting a Meet the Teacher time from 3:00-4:00pm.  This is a time for parents that are new to the school to meet their child(ren)’s teacher(s) or for returning parents to meet any new teachers.  Parents are asked to remain in their vehicles until 3:00pm and then come into GCS through the main school doors; you will sign-in and be directed to your child(ren)’s teacher’s location. While in GCS, parents are required to wear a non-medical mask at all times.  In order for multiple parents to meet the various teachers, please ensure that your time with each teacher is kept to a minimum. 

Planting Kindness

At GCS, creating well-rounded students includes much more than academics.  In an effort to teach students to look outside themselves to the needs of others or the greater community, each elementary class will be choosing a way to give back or help others in need.  The grade 3 students will be discussing this as a class over the first couple of days this week. Please keep your eyes open for an update on our decision!
