GCS Grades 3 and 4

The Adventures of Mrs. Bouter's Class

A Look at the Week Ahead – Nov. 4-8

on November 3, 2013

I hope you all had a blessed weekend. I know I did! I’ve been especially enjoying the truth that “God’s divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness” (1 Peter 1:3). He gives us the power to live godly lives!

Take a look at what’s coming up this week. Also, check out the pictures from last Friday when the students shared stories they had written with the kindergarten class and then worked together to write up a collaborative story outline. It was great to see your children step up and be the teachers! They did a wonderful job and had a great time as well. I also posted a picture of the students with Mr. Allin’s grade nine class who performed skits for us on Wednesday.

Remembrance Day Ceremony and Slideshow

As mentioned in a previous post, on Thursday we will be having our Remembrance Day ceremony at 1:00 in the afternoon. This is a change from other years. Parents are more than welcome to join us for this assembly.

Grandparents’ Day

The Remembrance Day ceremony will be followed by our Grandparents’ Day program at 2:00 to honour these very special people in our lives. Afterwards there will be coffee, tea, and snacks downstairs. Grandparents are invited to come and visit their grandchildren in their classrooms. If a student’s grandparents cannot join us, stand-in grandparents are more than welcome! We love to see families come together and celebrate the special relationships God has blessed us with, even if they are not the most conventional.

No School

Please take note that there is no school this Friday due to a Professional Development Day or the following Monday due to Remembrance Day. Also, there will be no school on Friday, November 15 for parent teacher interviews.

Parent-Teacher Interviews

Times for parent-teacher interviews will be scheduled this week for Thursday, November 14, from 6:00-9:00 pm and Friday, November 15, from 10:00-12:00. I look forward to meeting with you and discussing your child’s progress!
