November 2nd – 5th

Hello Parents, 

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. It’s hard to believe that we are into November already.  Coming up this week:

Fall Party At The Laird Farm:

Once again this year, students have been invited to enjoy lunch and an afternoon of celebration at the Laird family farm, this coming Wednesday, from  noon until 2:30 PM.  We will use this time to explore the farm environment and admire the beauty of God’s creation during the autumn season.   Students will receive their permission slip on Monday, please return it on Tuesday morning.  Parents who are willing to provide some sweet treats for the children to share are encouraged to send them with your child on Wednesday morning.  We will require drivers to and from this event, so please confirm whether or not you are available to help us out!

Scholastics Book Order

A Scholastic Book order form was sent home with your child this past week.  There is NO expectation that you place an order from it, however, if you do wish to order a book for your child there are new options this year.  Parents can pay online with a credit card or via cheque.  Please refer to the last page of each order form for more details or go to:

Please have any orders placed by Wednesday, November 4th.

This week’s tests:

Wednesday — Math Test

Christmas Craft Club:

We are pleased to announce that GCS will be hosting an after-school Christmas Craft Club on Thursdays from Nov 26th – Dec 17th, from 3:00-4:30.  Details and a permission slip with full details will be sent home early next week.


PD Day (No Classes- For Students Anyway!)

As important as it is for your children to be learning and growing academically, so to it the case for us teachers.  On Friday, November 6th, students will not have classes as teachers from GCS participate in a professional development day.
