April 18th – 23rd

Hello Parents,

This coming week will look a little different for GCS students.  This week all classes will be writing the Canadian Achievement Tests.  For grade one and two, we will be writing a different part of the test each  morning before lunch time.  The tests cover  reading comprehension, vocabulary, spelling and Math skills.

There will be no spelling test this week as we will be writing the CAT’s however, students will be expected to practice their spelling list each night.  We will write the test next week April 29th.  (List # 22 grade one, List # 25 for grade two)


Don’t forget to register your child for the next school year.  To ensure your child’s seat for the 2016-17 year, please register your child by paying the annual $200 re-enrollment fee and filling out the registration form by April 30th.   With demand for classroom spaces increasing, it is more important than ever to reserve your child’s place.

Re-enrollment Fee
• On or before April 30: $200/family
• May 1 – June 30: $250/family
• After June 30: $350/family
