April 3rd – 7th

Hello Parents,

Here are a few things that are coming up this week and in the next couple of weeks.

Island Storm Game & GCS Fundraiser:

Have you purchased your tickets for the Island Storm Game on April 7th, featuring our Jr & Sr Cheer teams? Please return your money to your child’s homeroom teacher to receive your ticket vouchers before game day. You will need to cash in the vouchers for an actual seat before the game.

Cheerleaders:  We are pleased to be offering our Jr. & Sr. Cheerleaders a free student ticket to this game. That being said, each cheerleader is expected to purchased a minimum of 1 adult ticket. While this is a school-related event, students MUST be supervised by a parent.  Jr Cheerleaders who return their form to their homeroom teacher indicating the number of tickets they wish to purchase, as well as payment, will receive their student ticket voucher at that time. Mrs. Able has agreed to cash in the tickets for the senior girls cheer team, however each Sr cheerleader is expected to purchase a minimum of 1 adult ticket as well.

Any questions regarding tickets, please email Mrs. MacNeill at nmacneill@gcspei.ca.  We hope you will spread the word to family, friends, co-workers & neighbors. We’d be happy to have you all join us to cheer on our Island Storm.

Open Chapel – You’re Invited:  

Everyone is invited to join us for our weekly Chapel service on April 19th from 9:00am – 10:00am. We will sing some of our favourite chapel songs. Grades 1-6 will have the opportunity to perform some of the songs they have learned in music throughout the year. Kindergarten will also preform a short musical which they having been working hard on in music with Mrs. Bouter. Please invite grandparents, aunts and uncles and other family members. All are welcome! We hope to see you there.

Classroom supplies: 

Our class is in need  of a few more packages of Baby wipes to get us through to the end of the year.  If you are able, please send in one package of baby wipes with your child.   We use the wipes everyday for students to wipe their hands before lunch time.
