Celebrating Diversity and Heritage – Week 19 at GCS

on January 15, 2017

Hello parents! I trust that you are enjoying this day that the Lord has given us. Here is a look at what is going on at GCS this week.

Heritage Celebration & Dumpling Day

The culture at Grace Christian School is diverse. Tomorrow, Monday, January 16th, we are encouraging each student to help us celebrate our diversity by wearing something that represents their family heritage- a family tartan, a traditional costume, or even a t-shirt displaying their country’s flag.

We are also looking forward to Dumpling Day, thanks to the generosity of some of our GCS students and their families. Each student will have the opportunity to sample the dumplings, and there is a rumor that a contest may occur to see who makes the prettiest dumpling! See you tomorrow.

School Spirit Day

To show our ongoing support for our GCS basketball teams we are asking everyone to wear GCS apparel to school on Tuesday, January 17th.  A small treat for everyone wearing GCS clothing will be delivered to classrooms. A draw for a GCS T-shirt will also be made.

Chess Club

The last day of Chess Club will be on Thursday morning, January 26th. The club will resume on Monday, March 27th and continue until Thursday, June 8th. New forms and another fee of $20 per student will be collected in March.

Book Reports

I have sent home the outline for the cereal box book report for both grades 3 and 4. Please ensure that you read it over so you know what is expected. Grade 3 will be doing some of the writing with me in class but regular non-ESL grade 4 students will be completing the project mostly independently.  I will still look over their rough copies. If your child happens to misplace the outline, I am putting a link to it here: 2016-reading-cereal-box-book-report-outline-for-grade-3-and-4

Bible Memory Verse

I believe I have not yet written the new Bible memory verse on the blog. Do not fret for it is a short selection and due on January 26th.

“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
