Our final week together

Trip to Emmanuel Bible Camp

On Monday, June 19th, students in grades 1-6 will be travelling by bus to Emmanuel Bible Camp for their year-end trip. They will enjoy a variety of camp activities such as pellet range, archery, rock wall climbing, sports, crafts, camp-wide games, swimming and canoeing (water sports will be only for students in grades 3-6). Students should pack a lunch that does not need to be heated. Also, they should come prepared with bug spray, sunscreen, a hat, layered clothing (in case it becomes cold), swim wear (for students grades 3-6), and sneakers. Students also wishing to purchase a small treat from the tuck shop, should bring their own money.  Items such as chocolate bars, ice cream, chips, candy, juice, etc are $1.50 each.

The bus will be leaving at 9:00, so please be at school on time. Students are asked to bring $2.00 to cover the cost of the bus. If you are interested in chaperoning, or have any questions, please feel free to contact me. This should be a great time to relax and have fun in the great outdoors!

Family Fun Day At Sandspit:   NO CLASSES

It is that time again – Thursday, June 22nd will be our annual GCS Sandspit day! The ride bracelets this year will be $12.50 per person and allow for all rides except the go karts. All parents are required to pay for their own bracelets. When purchasing bracelets, let the cashier know you are with the GCS group. Hours of operation are from 9:30am – 3:30pm. This is a great opportunity for you to come and enjoy your children and the fellowship of other parents. You are reminded that there is no supervision by GCS staff and each parent is responsible for either attending with their children or making provision for their children to be cared for.

School Closing: 

Please join us on Friday, June 23rd, at 9:30 AM as we celebrate the 2016-2017 school year. Several of our students will be honored throughout the ceremony for their achievements and contributions to GCS this past year.  Following the ceremony, students will return to class to pick up their final report cards and will be dismissed for the summer.  Please ensure that your child is picked up by 11:30 AM.

Students who cannot attend School Closing are asked to make arrangements to pick up their report cards from the office the following week, as report cards will not be given out prior to the celebration.

 

Gr 1/2 announcements:

We have two full days together in the classroom this week so we decided to have some fun!

Tuesday: Show and Tell Day/ Career Day! Each student will present one thing to the class. Tuesday will also be Career Day where each student is invited to dress up as what they want to be when they grow up or simply a career they admire.

Wednesday: Crazy Hair Day

 

We had a blast at Lily Paquet’s house on Wednesday! Here are some pictures to prove it!

Sincerely,

Ms. Jenkins

Wednesday’s trip to Lily Paquets

Greetings!

This Wednesday we will be travelling to Lily Paquet’s for a fun-filled day. We will be leaving the school at 10:00 am and returning around 2:30. We are still asking for drivers so if you could let me know by tomorrow afternoon that will help in our planning. Also we have sent home consent forms for this event so if you could have those back to us by tomorrow because Wednesday is almost too late as we are leaving Wednesday morning. If you have any questions regarding this event please let me know. Due to the liability of water safety and no official lifeguard on duty we will not be swimming.

Ms. Jenkins

ESL – A Living Art Gallery:

Get ready for the world premiere of the GCS ESL Living Art Gallery! On Friday, June 9, from 1:00-3:00, you are invited to come and meet many figures from history, while hearing from our English language learners from every grade level.

Dress Code Reminder:

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.
