A sincere thank-you to all of you who generously contributed to the success of our pancake breakfast this past Saturday. In just a few short hours, we generated approximately $4000 for our school. More importantly, it was a blessing to see families visiting with one another and building stronger ties within our GCS community.
This week’s Bible Verse:
And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.
Winter Weather & School Cancellation
Due to the dropping temperatures and the snow in the air today, please review the following information regarding potential school closures or delays.
In the case of a “one hour delay”, school will begin at 10:00am, while a “school closure” results in no school at all for the day.
When announcements are made for a delay or closure, GCS follows the Public School Board, formerly knows as the English Language School Board. Alternatively, sometimes only certain schools will be delayed or closed and will be announced by “family of schools”; GCS follows the Bluefield Family, Colonel Gray Family, and Charlottetown Rural Family of schools. If any of these are delayed or canceled, GCS will be also.
There are a number of ways to know if there is a school delay or closure; they are as follows:
- We will post on the GCS Facebook (Grace Christian School – Prince Edward Island), Twitter (@gcs_pei), and Instagram (gcspei) accounts
- Each PEI radio station regularly announces delays/closures (as English Language School Board)
- The CBC Stormcentre website (http://www.cbc.ca/stormcentre/pei/) (as English Language School Board)
- The PEI radio station websites also post delays/closures on their sites (as English Language School Board)
- Families can opt in to a GCS text message notification. If school is delayed or canceled, a text message can be sent from GCS to one cell phone in the family to notify of the delay/closure. This is an OPT-IN ONLY program. If you would like to use this option, please email Jordan Ellis (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the cell phone number that you want to have the text message notification be sent to. If you opted in last year and still have the same cell phone number, it is already still in the system.
