GCS Grades 3 and 4

The Adventures of Mrs. Bouter's Class

A Short Week – October 27-29

on October 26, 2014

Hello parents and readers!

I have to say that last week with its full load of science and technology was an absolute joy to partake in. Kudos to Mrs. MacNeill for her fantastic organization of the week! Be sure to check out some of the pictures below.

With no school on Thursday and Friday, tomorrow begins a short and exciting week at GCS. Take a look at what’s coming up.

Cereal Box Book Report

I am looking forward to seeing the grade four students’ creations tomorrow as their book reports will be due. Last Friday the students and I had a great time together in the kitchen as we took a literal twist on the main lesson of Song of the Brook and made some delicious lemonade to enjoy and share with fellow students and teachers.

Combined Spelling and Social Studies Test

We did not have a traditional spelling test on Friday as last week’s words were intended to go be a combined spelling and social studies test. This means that students will need to study and be able to identify the provinces on a map. We will be having this test on Tuesday.

Fall Party

Calling all cowboys and cowgirls! On Wednesday, we will be heading to the Lairds’ farm for our annual Fall Party! Permission slips went home last week so be sure to check in your child’s agenda pocket if you haven’t signed it yet. Please let me know if you can help out with driving or supplying simple desserts.

Visit to the Mount

Next Monday, November 3rd, we will be travelling to The Mount Continuing Care Community to minister to the seniors there and to “adopt a Grandparent” for a short time. Permission slips will be sent home this week. Again, we will need drives for this event so please let me know if you can help.

Picture Orders and Retakes

Please note that picture orders are due by November 5th. Retakes will occur on Thursday, November 13th.

Remembrance Day 

On Monday, November 10th, GCS will be holding a Remembrance Day ceremony from 1:00-2:00 in the afternoon. Everyone is welcome to attend and commemorate those who have sacrificed for freedom.

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.

Layering Up

As you have probably all noticed, it’s getting COLD! Please ensure your child is adequately dressed for the weather.
