GCS Grades 3 and 4

The Adventures of Mrs. Bouter's Class

Brighter Days Are Here!

on May 4, 2015

Well, we all had a fantastic two weeks of fitness fun with Stop, Drop, and Exercise, healthy snacks, nutrition lessons, obstacle courses, fitness games, and Zumba. The students in grade 3 and 4 were very excited to have won the Pedometer Challenge and they enjoyed a delicious smoothie as their hard-earned prize last Friday. (They truly put their sweat and tears into this challenge. It was almost gross.) To top the two weeks off was the Family Fun Run! Thanks to all who came out to participate! A special congratulations to Simon McGonnell and Kyler Barrett who placed second and third in their division respectively. Way to run!


This Wednesday the grade 3 and 4 class will be celebrating their positive behaviour with a well-earned classroom pizza party! Students are invited to wear pajamas or their favorite hockey jersey for the day. We will be watching a short movie in the afternoon and maybe even showing off our silly dance moves. J


Mrs. Huizing’s creative writing students have been working hard on GCS’s first student-designed yearbook! Order forms will be sent home this week for anyone who did not receive one. Yearbooks will be $19.99 and will be handed out at school closing.

After School Music

Starting this Thursday, May 7th, Mrs. Barton will be running an after school music program for anyone in grades 3-6.  We will be working on a mallet percussion song that we will be performing at our last chapel of the year.  Practices will be every Thursday from 3:00 – 3:45.  Anyone wishing to join must be committed to coming to all practices for the next 6 weeks. Please email Mrs. Barton at jbarton@gracechristianschool.ca if you plan for your child to attend.

If they did not make it home today, then proofs for spring photos will be handed out tomorrow. Orders are due on May 15th for anyone who would like to purchase photos.
