The Gift of Service – Week 18 at GCS

on January 17, 2016

Taken by Storm!

We had a fantastic time last Thursday with the Storm Basketball players who talked to the students about important life lessons such as the power of prayer in our lives. We were blessed to be able to listen to their stories, ask questions, cheer on players and teachers alike during a shootout in the gym, and watch the Storm players do awesome trick shots!

Sorting for Syrians

As our belated Christmas Service Project, grade 3 and 4 will be sorting clothing that has been generously donated for Syrian refugees arriving in Prince Edward Island. These families have fled war in their home country, taking little to nothing with them. It will be an honor to serve others in this way. Out sorting will be on Monday morning. Volunteers are more than welcome to come and lend a hand!

Book Reports

This week I will be sending home project outlines for both the grade four book report on Pilgrim Boy and the grade four book report on Saved at Sea. Please ensure you read the outline through so that you know what is expected and can help your child plan the project and gather necessary materials.

Bible Memory Verse

Please take note that students will be having their test on their Bible verse this coming Thursday. They have been going over the verse every day during class, but may need additional study.

“I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.  I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” – Philippians 4:12-13
