End of May Announcements!

Happy Spring, GCS family!
The flowers are growing fast and so are your children. In fact, students may be growing out of their clothing that fit them last fall! Thank you parents for working with us in dressing your children appropriately for school, so with the change in seasons, we wish to provide you with this reminder.

As stated in the GCS Handbook the school’s overall dress code standard is modest, clean, neat, and appropriate. Shorts and skirts must not be shorter than just above the knee, which is typically to the tips of the fingers on most children. Girls are permitted to wear sleeveless shirts as long as the straps are wider than three finger widths (please no shirts with thin spaghetti straps). Clothing with a rebellious or negative message are considered dress code violations.

All kindergarten and elementary students must have a second pair of shoes to be worn inside. According to provincial regulations, kindergarten and elementary students are required to wear socks at all times while at school. Sandals are not permitted for this reason.

We are thrilled to see our elementary students wearing GCS apparel on a daily basis. We are even more excited when we see our parents embracing their GCS pride and purchasing clothes for themselves. For those wishing to purchase GCS apparel, please visit our online clothing store at: http://gracecs.entripyshops.com/. New items are being added regularly.

Thanks again for partnering with us. If you have additional questions, please contact your child’s homeroom teacher. Enjoy the warm springtime weather!
