Hello Parents,

I hope you all had a chance to enjoy this beautiful weekend.  I am looking forward to the first full week with the students in grade two.  Please take note of the following items regarding our grade two class this week.

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.  In Grade two, we talked about a couple of options that we could do as class and decided that we would collect new or gently used newborn sleepers and hats for the babies in unit 4 at the QEH.   Your child can send their donation into class by September 27th.  We will ensure that the sleepers and hats are delivered to the QEH that week.
