GCS Grades 3 and 4

The Adventures of Mrs. Bouter's Class

A Time of Thanksgiving – Week 6 at GCS

on October 13, 2015

Hello parents,

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and took time to be thankful for all the blessings God has given us. I know for myself that I am grateful for being well-stuffed with delicious food and having the love of family and friends.

Cross Country Congrats

We had a great day last Monday running the tracks with hundreds of other students from around the province. A special mention goes to Kyler Barrett for falling at the first and then getting up and still coming in 21st! Way to go!

World Vision Coin Drive – Good News!

I am very excited to announce that, together, our small class has raised $39.24 for World Vision! Your children are wonderful and I am immensely proud of them for seeking to bless those who are in need.

Song of the Brook

I’m excited to announce that grade four students will be starting the novel Song of the Brook by Matilda Nordvedt this week. This sequel to Secret in the Maple Tree continues the story of Hilda and her family as they move to Washington State. Its dominant theme, making the best of every situation in which God places one, builds students’ character and allows them to recognize that a novel usually has one prevailing idea. We will be reading a chapter a day in class and then I will assign a chapter for homework every night. For every chapter, students will write a sentence summarizing the main action on a sticky note. It is very important that students keep up with the assigned chapters. From their comments, I know that some of the students will be very excited to continue reading about the adventures of Hilda!

Free Milk

We are blessed to have Free Milk Day this Friday, October 16.


I am excited to announce that on the morning of Thursday, October 22, Grade 3/4 students will be going on a geocaching adventure in the neighborhood surrounding the school for their Social Studies unit on mapping.
