Wowzas! – Week 36 at GCS

on May 30, 2016

Hello parents!

It’s almost June and, wowzas! are there ever a lot of exciting events packed into this month! Here is some information about what’s coming up this week.

Jamaica Missions Team Presentation

Several grade 11 and 12 students from GCS have recently returned from a missions trip to Jamaica and are eager to share their experiences.  Please feel welcome to join us as we attend a special presentation by the Jamaica Missions Team on Wednesday, June 1st, at 1:45 PM in the sanctuary.

Elementary Track and Field Day

On Wednesday, June 1st, students in grades 1-6 will travel by bus to UPEI for a track and field day. This will allow students to prepare for the up-coming ACSI Track Meet on Wednesday, June 8th.  Please ensure your child comes prepared with appropriate athletic wear, sneakers, water, and a snack.

BBQ Lunch!

This Thursday, June 2nd, all students are invited to partake in a BBQ lunch. Hot dogs and hamburgers will be available at no cost to students. Hopefully, we will be able to eat outside and enjoy a nice picnic!

Scholastic Book Order

A Scholastic book order form was sent home with your child today.  There is NO expectation that you place an order from it. However, if you do wish to order a book for your child you may send the money into school or pay for it online via credit card or cheque.  Please refer to the last page of each order form for more details or go to:


Please have any orders placed by Friday, June 3rd. If you have any questions, contact the Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Perry.


Mrs. Huizing’s creative writing students have been working hard on GCS’s second student-designed yearbook! Order forms will be sent home this week. The last day for ordering will be June 10th. Yearbooks will be $25 and will be handed out at school closing.
