It’s hard to believe that we are nearing the end of September already!
First of all, I’d like to send out a big thanks to you parents on the quick response after the threat we received on Wednesday. Pastor Jeff has written an insightful post about a biblical reaction to this kind of fear-inducing event. You can check it out by following the link: http://www.adfontes.ca/posts/post/article/after-the-bomb-threat-thanking-god-in-atlantic-canada/index.php
Indeed, we have much to be thankful for, including the safety of all the children.
Wendy’s This Week
With the sudden events of last Wednesday, we were unable to honor the Wendy’s orders that were placed last week. For this reason, orders will be filled for lunch THIS Thursday. If you have not placed an order from Wendy’s, and would like to place on order for this Thursday, please return your lunch order form and money by Wednesday at 9 AM.
Terry Fox Run
Due to the rainy weather this past week, our Terry Fox Run was postponed. This Friday, at 12 noon, all GCS students will gather outdoors to participate in our 12th annual Terry Fox Run. Please ensure your child has proper footwear, clothing, and a water bottle. While we are not sending our students out to canvas the community, any donations received will be added to the proceeds of our first Casual Day and sent to support cancer research.
Tomorrow your child will be sent home with a weekly test folder. This folder contains all the graded tests from the previous week (and sometimes longer). Please sign the folder where it says signature for that week. If you have any questions or comments, you can write them in the space provided. Please have your child return the folder with all the tests inside the next day. For more immediate test scores, you can always log in to your account on My School Management. Just go the school’s website or follow the link here: https://gcs.myschoolmanagement.com/login.php. Remember, it is always advisable for you to review any problem areas with your child so that he or she benefits from the test and masters the material.
Bible Memory Verse
As we are reading Romans 12:9-12 together every day, it is quickly being learned! However, I don’t believe I have posted the passage on the blog yet, so here it is. It will be due on October 4th.
“Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”
