Sept. 29th- Oct. 3rd

Hello Parents,

Sorry for the late post. I hope you all enjoyed the great weekend we had and have settled in well to the new week.  It’s hard to believe we have been in school for almost a month already!

Today we welcomed Daniel to our class.  Daniel is in grade two and we are happy to have him join us in our class.  We pray the he will settle in quickly and feel  welcome at Grace.

Here are a few important things to remember about this week and in the weeks ahead.

Math Test:  Thursday Oct. 2nd

Phonics test:   Friday Oct. 3rd

Grade two: Spelling  test  # 2 Friday Oct. 3rd.

Grade one will be introduced to their first spelling list this Friday.  Their first spelling test will take place Oct. 10th.


This week’s lunch menu:

Thursday:  Subway

If you wish to order milk for your child please send the order and Money in with you child on Wednesday.  Please remember to put all money in a sealed envelope with your child’s name, the purpose of the money and the amount in the envelope.


International Dinner:
Grace Christian School EAL Program & Student Council invite you to their 1st International Potluck Dinner, on October 6, 2014, at 5:30 PM.  Families are asked to bring a dish or dessert to share that represents their family’s heritage. GCS will provide tea, coffee and cold drinks as students from around the world entertain us with their talent! For more information contact Mrs. Huizing.  What a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the diversity of our students at GCS.  Hope to see you all there!

Elementary School choir

Students in grade one and two are invited to join the elementary school choir.   We will be practicing a song for our grandparents day celebrations.  Practices will be held every Thursday from 3:00 – 4:00.  This week will be the last week for accepting new members.  If your child wishes to join the choir, please ensure they can make it to all practices.

Coupon Booklets

Once again this year, students will have the opportunity to participate in the 2014 Fantastic Fall Saver Coupon Book campaign, as part of our school’s fundraising efforts. The money raised is necessary to allow for various educational and extra-curricular activities at GCS. This year, a portion of the funds raised will also be donated to the QEH Foundation. The booklets can be purchased for $10. Students are asked to return their sale forms and money on October 8 or 9. Coupon booklets will be sent home on Tuesday, October 14.



Have a great week!

Mrs. Barton
