This Week – February 3-6

on February 3, 2014

Hi there readers:

Welcome to February and the beginning of the second half of the year! There’s lots happening so be sure to check the blog for information and updates.


Parent-Teacher Interviews and Report Cards

Be sure to sign up for Parent-Teacher Interviews which will take place this Thursday evening from 6:00-9:00 and Friday morning from 10:00–12:00.  I would love to meet with each one of you to discuss you child’s progress this year. Sign-up sheets are located at the front entrance of the school.  If you are unable to attend during these scheduled times, send me an email at mrobbins@gracechristianschool,ca and I would be happy to set up another time that is more convenient for you. Also, report cards will be sent home on Thursday.

Olympic Spirit

We’re looking forward to celebrating the 2014 Olympics in style with a variety of activities. First of all, each of the elementary classes has chosen a few countries to collect data on and record the progress of. In our classroom we will be cheering on the athletes from Canada and Austria. We invite you to take a walk down our “Olympic Hallway”  where we will be displaying the number of gold, silver, and bronze medals earned by each country.

Also, during chapel this week, students are asked to dress in team colors.  Both of our chosen countries incorporate the colors red and white into their national flag. We will parade into chapel carrying our flags before singing our own national anthem and unifying to demonstrate sportsmanship and national pride.

Sleigh Ride

The Sleigh Ride that was postponed last week will take place this Thursday, February 6th.  We will be leaving the school at 1:00 to arrive at the Terpstra’s by 1:15. We are even able to take the bus for this event so no parents are required to drive.
