I would like to thank everyone for contributing goodies to our Canada celebration this past week. Everybody looked fabulous in their Canada outfits.
As we approach the final few weeks of the school year things begin to get very busy. Please take note of the following information:

Sports Awards Ceremony:
Please join us on Thursday, June 8th, from 2:00 – 3:00, as we celebrate our athletes and all they have accomplished throughout the past school year. Go Knights!
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.
