We had a great week last week. Students are enjoying the new system of behaviour. On Friday students were able to trade in their stickers for the first time. Students choose and were able to take home their coupon to show parents what they received. These coupons were put in your child’s agenda. Please return these coupons to school so they can be reused. Students who chose to wear pyjamas or to take a fluff friend to school may do so on Monday.
This week’s test:
Tuesday — Phonics test
Wednesday — Math test
Friday — Spelling test (List # 10 for grade one — List # 12 for grade two)
Reminder of the Microwave Schedule.
New Sledding procedures:
With winter in full swing, and a little bit of snow on the ground, students are very anxious to hit the fantastic sledding hill at GCS. In previous years, students have been invited to take their sleds from home to use during recess. For various reasons, including safety concerns, students are no longer permitted to take their sleds from home. GCS has purchased a significant amount of sleds for students to use during recess, and has plans in place to ensure greater safety for the students on the hill.
We appreciate your cooperation on this matter, and look forward to some fun on the sledding hill this winter.

Here are pictures from last week’s chapel. Pastor Stephen Bray spoke to the students for the last time. Pastor Bray and his family are moving back to Newfoundland to pastor at a church in Saint John. Students heard a great message reminding students that God is Powerful, He can do anything, it’s always best to obey God and God protects those who follow him. Students gave Pastor Steve a group hug to say good bye.
