And here we are at the start of another week! The sun is shining and hopefully beckoning the coming of spring. 🙂 Please take note of the following:
Island Storm Game
Please look for an important announcement being sent home with your child on Monday regarding our upcoming Island Storm basketball game on Friday, April 7th. This fundraiser allows for half the proceeds of our tickets sales to go right back to GCS. You simply buy a ticket at a reduced rate of $10, and come enjoy the game.
The Jr & Sr Cheer teams will be performing during the half-time show, and our Sr High Ladies Basketball Champions will be recognized as well. Please send in your ticket forms and payment to your child’s homeroom teacher. If friends, family, and/or coworkers would like to purchase tickets, please let me know and I will arrange to make that happen!
The Island Storm will also visit the elementary this coming Monday. Kids are encouraged to wear their GCS apparel!
Great Mathletics Success!
The students certainly rose to the challenge of keeping their math skills sharp! GCS is currently in tenth place in the March Madness Mathletics Competition! Only one more week to go!
I did promise that the top scoring students over March Break would receive a special treat. Congratulations to Micah Bailey (2206 points), Octavian Lui (1696 points), Jasmine Han (1550 points), Phu Vo (1721 points), and Cody Rancourt (1000 points)!
New Bible Memory Verse
This is the last Bible verse for this year as the remainder of the year will focus on learning the books of the Bible. This passage is due on April 11.
With your help I can advance against a troop;
with my God I can scale a wall.
As for God, his way is perfect:
The Lord’s word is flawless;
he shields all who take refuge in him.
For who is God besides the Lord?
And who is the Rock except our God?
- 2 Samuel 22:30-32
