Community Outreach Project

Our Grade 3 class will be collecting new toys/games for the Play Room in the Pediatric Unit of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Parents will receive an email with all the information shortly.

Terry Fox Run

This Friday students will be participating in the Terry Fox Run.  Students will learn about Terry Fox and participate in a run to remember his contribution to cancer research. Elementary students are encouraged to bring a donation to their teachers or their parents can e-transfer to tuition@gcspei.ca with “Terry Fox” in the subject line and their student’s name included in the message.

Dressing for the Weather

This past week began with summer temperatures and ended feeling very chilly indeed! Please be sure to check the weather forecast for the day and have your child dressed ready for the varying temperatures. Please keep in mind that morning recesses are often much chillier than in the afternoon.


When packing your child’s lunch bag, please remember to add whatever utensils he or she will need as well.

Agendas and Reading Logs

Students are writing their homework on the first school day of the week. Reading logs should be completed every day that there is homework (not over the weekend).
