As April Ends…

on April 28, 2014

Hello all! Praise God for the newness of life that we find everywhere this time of year! His blessings to us are indeed abundant and beyond all that we can ask or think. ūüôā

Here is a look at what’s coming up in the next while:


I mentioned this before but was asked to spread the word again: April is re-enrollment month and if you know that your child will be returning to GCS in the fall, you can save $200 by re-enrolling before May 1, which is now only two days away.

Grade 3 Book Reports

Grade three students will be¬†writing their reports for Secret in the Maple Tree this week. Keep an eye on your child’s agenda for an outline of the project.

PD Day

There will be no school on Friday, May 2, due to a Professional Development Day.

Fun Run

We are gearing up for this Saturday’s Fun Run! All proceeds from this wonderful school and community event will be used to purchase an outdoor shooting apparatus that will be placed in the elementary playground. More information on the day, as well as a link to the registration form, can be found here:

New Thinking, New Possibilities Drive for Grace with Experience 
Hyundai & Subaru of Charlottetown

We’re excited to announce that on Wednesday May 7th, we’re teaming up with our neighbours on the Action Corner, Experience Hyundai and Subaru of Charlottetown, for a test drive event!¬†

You’re invited to join us on the grounds of Grace Christian School to test drive that Hyundai or Subaru you’ve had your eye on, while at the same time helping to support the personal and academic growth of the students at Grace Christian School. For each test drive, the good folks at Experience Hyundai & Subaru of Charlottetown will make a $20 contribution towards the school’s new infrastructure and IT fund-raising efforts. It costs NOTHING for you to take a short test drive‚Ķ just a few minutes of your time. Food and beverages will be available for purchase throughout the day.¬†

TIME: 8:30am ‚Äď 6:00pm¬†
