It is incredible to think that we are now entering the final quarter of our school year! Seven and a half months have just breezed by us, and we only have a short amount of time left until the end of the year. With that in mind, please take note of the following important notices:
Parent Teacher Conferences:
Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Wednesday evening (April 17) from 6-9pm and Thursday morning (April 18) from 10am-12pm. As we did in the first half of the year, we will use SignUp.com, an online web-based platform, for parents registering for conferences with their child’s teachers.

Track & Field Training
Mondays and Fridays, starting April 15, Track and Field practices will be held from 3:15-4:00 at GCS. Students in grades 3-12 are invited to participate and should come dressed in proper fitness attire and sneakers.
We are thankful for our parent volunteers who have committed to running 2 basketball camps this year. Camps will run on Wednesdays beginning on April 17- May 15. The grade 1-4 camp will be held at GCS from 3:15-4:15 with Mrs Able, while students in grades 5-8 will require drives to ICS to participate in their camp from 3:30-5:00 with Mr Rancourt.
As we anticipate and prepare for the Easter holiday next weekend, may we all take time to remember why we celebrate. It is a time to reflect on Christ’s crucifixion and death upon the cross for our salvation, and to proclaim the glory of His resurrection. In honour of this, school will be closed on Friday, April 19th and Monday, April 22nd. Classes will resume Tuesday, April 23rd.
