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.
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.
