Here we are at the end of February! Please take note of the following announcements:
Island Storm Visit:
We are excited to be welcoming the Island Storm back to GCS this Wednesday, Feb 27th. During their visit, students will host their annual game of “Are You Smarter Than A GCS Knight?” We are encouraging students to come dressed in their GCS apparel to display their school pride.
The students will be travelling to the APM Centre in Cornwall again this Friday for an elementary skate from 1:30-2:30. Students are required to have skates, mittens, and a helmet in order to participate. Students who do not wish to participate in these skating days are asked to be picked up at the school at 12:15.
Letters for Mrs. Smylie:
As part of our Language and Creative Writing lessons, the Grade Three students have learned how to write a friendly letter. To make this activity more real for the students, they have written a letter and addressed an envelope to me! We will be taking a walk one day this week to a few nearby mailboxes (just within the Grace Baptist subdivision) in order to actually mail the letters. We will go to more than one mailbox just to see if the letters from different mailboxes get delivered on the same day.
