Greetings! Take note below of all exciting events taking place this Christmas season in Grade Two.
Christmas Community Outreach Project
Throughout the month of December, every GCS student will participate in special community outreach projects that will allow them to move their focus from themselves to the needs of others. This year our class will be making Christmas treat bags for the soup kitchen to hand out on Christmas Eve. We ask that each student brings one kind of candy of their choosing amounting to a 3-4 dollar bag from Bulk Barn. Thank you for your help!
Classic Christmas Concert (Grade K-2)
Please join us on Thursday, December 5th from 2:30 – 3:00 for the presentation of a Classic Christmas Concert. Students in Kindergarten through Grade Two have been preparing for the Christmas season by memorizing Bible verses, singing classic Christmas carols, and playing instruments. For the performance your child is expected to be in attendance wearing the appropriate concert dress suggestions. We are going with a red, black and silver theme this year for clothing. Acceptable concert dress for boys would include a black, white, or red dress shirt, black pants with black socks and dress shoes. For the girls any combination of these colours is acceptable. For example, a black or red dress, a black/red top and black skirt/pants and black dress shoes would be acceptable as well. Accessories such as headbands, bows and ties are optional but welcomed in either red, black or silver. Please refrain from having your student wear jeans for the concert.
This quarter we will be working on presenting techniques through Friday’s Genius Hour. Students will present an item from home talking about how the item functions and the uses of it. We will practice making eye-contact, staying on task, and answering questions at the end of the presentation. This week, all remaining students will present.
