Lest We Forget – Week 10 at GCS

on November 6, 2016

Hello parents,

There is a lot going on this week, especially in regards to Remembrance Day. Please be aware of all the upcoming events.

Trip to the Mount

Just a friendly reminder that we will be travelling to The Mount tomorrow to perform a short Remembrance Day program and show love and kindness to the seniors.

French Test

Mrs. Laird would like to remind students that they have a test on verbs avoir and etre coming up this Tuesday, November 8th.

Remembrance Day Service

This Wednesday, November 9th, 2016, marks the date for our annual Remembrance Day service. It will begin at 2:00 pm and last for approximately one hour. Following the ceremony, students will be dismissed for the day. We invite you all to join us for this time of remembrance.

As in the past, we are asking for your help in inviting veterans, or currently serving members of the military, to the service so that we can honour their contribution to securing our freedom. If you know that a veteran or service person will be in attendance as a result of your invitation, please contact Mrs. Thompson at pthompson@gcspei.ca and give her the individual’s name, rank, and field of service. This will enable us to give him/her appropriate recognition during the ceremony.

Also, Mr. Ellis is again preparing a Power Point to be played during the service; therefore, we are soliciting photographs of family members who served during the World Wars, the Korean War, the Afghanistan conflict, or in peace-keeping, to personalize our presentation. Any photos received will be scanned and returned in a timely manner. We understand that they are family treasures. Photos can also be scanned at home and e-mailed to the school at jellis@gcspei.ca.  Please indicate the name, rank, field of service, arena and time served (e.g. Corporal Joe Smith, army, France, 1939-1945) of the individual pictured, as well as the relationship to your student (e.g. great-uncle of Katie Jones, grade three).  Please note that photos shared in previous years are on file and do not need to be re-submitted, but, if adjustments or corrections are required, please send that information.  New photos and/or adjustments must be received by Mr. Ellis no later than 3:00 pm, Monday, November 7th.

Thank you for partnering with us to make this year’s ceremony the best it can be.

Short Week

There will not be classes this Thursday, November 10th as it is a Professional Development Day for teachers nor on Friday, November 11th as it is Remembrance Day. Therefore, there will also be no spelling test this week. I do encourage students to keep their minds sharp by continuing to study math facts and spelling words!

Wee Knights

As another aspect of our vision becomes a reality, we are excited to announce the official launch of Wee Knights Child Care Centre to our school community!

Wee Knights Child Care Centre will provide a program that will encourage children, through God’s love, to grow intellectually and socially, challenging and stimulating them through a variety of developmentally-appropriate activities in a nurturing and caring environment.  This program will prepare children for a successful transition into Grace Christian School’s Junior or Senior Kindergarten.

We are anticipating an official opening date of Monday, January 9, 2017.

For more information or to schedule an appointment with our Centre Director (Mrs. Janet Neill), please call (902) 368-7120 or email info@wkpei.ca.  Space is limited and it is our desire is to have our current school families be the first to register.
