Dear Grade 6 GCS Family,

We had our first full week!  We were able to start all of our classes and it feels like school has officially begun!

Grade 6 started their measurement unit in math this week and learned about linear measurement and capacity.

Grade 6 also started their Social Studies class and began the week with learning about the causes of World War 1.

Terry Fox Run:

On Wednesday, September 29, Grace Christian School will participate in its twenty-first annual Terry Fox School Run.  In their respective cohorts at scheduled times, students will run, jog or walk laps of the school soccer field in tribute to Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope.  

Students will not be canvassing for pledges but donations will be gratefully accepted beginning Sept. 23rd until Sept. 29th by homeroom teachers or through e-transfer.  To electronically donate, use the email with Terry Fox in the subject line and the student’s name in the message.  

All funds received will be sent to the Terry Fox Foundation to assist in the ongoing fight against cancer.
