Welcome to Fall ~
It is hard to believe that we are almost finished with the first few weeks of school. I am sure your students are hard at work. We pray that they are making lots of friends and enjoying being part of the GCS family. We have been blessed with a great start to the year and I have loved getting to know your children.
All students and parents should be signed up to the Seesaw App now. If you have not, please email me as soon as you can.
As time moves on it is important to remind you of a few upcoming dates to remember.
This Friday September, 29 is a Professional Development Day (PD Day) this means that there are no classes for your students while the teachers go to school for training. Make sure your student takes their homework home for the long weekend. They will still have homework.
