We had a wonderfully eventful first full week of school! Meet the Teacher, a Carnival, and the Terry Fox Run all squeezed into the same week! I have enjoyed beginning to get to know my students and their individual personalities.
Every evening, each student is expected to
- read a book of their choice for 15 minutes OR the assigned reading
- practice spelling and vocabulary words by writing them 3 times or doing one of the alternate activities listed on each week’s spelling list.
- practice Bible verse
Occasionally, Math or Language work will come home. This will only happen if a student has been granted sufficient time to work on it in class and has not managed to finish. In this case, it is necessary to finish up at home so that the student is prepared for the next lesson(s). Your dedication to overseeing the completion of homework is appreciated.
Hot Lunch Program:
Please keep an eye out for more information about our school’s Hot Lunch Program which will be provided in the near future. Although lunch forms will be sent home each week to indicate the options available, parents may also wish to check our online school calendar to plan ahead. This week, students will have the option of purchasing fries and hotdogs on Tuesday. The cost of each item is $2.00 each. Please return your child’s order form and payment by Tuesday at 9AM.
Scrip is Grace Christian School’s simple fundraising program using gift cards from popular retailers. The school purchases these gift cards at a discount and resells them to parents for the face value of the card. Families will earn back the difference of the purchase (to a specified amount) to be returned to that family in June in the form of their choice of gift cards, tuition bursary, donation to GCS staff, or donation to GCS Plant a Seed Fund. Please remember to stop by the GCS Armoury just inside the new school atrium to purchase your gift cards.
