GCS Grades 3 and 4

The Adventures of Mrs. Bouter's Class

May Days – Week 34 at GCS

on May 7, 2017

And just like that, we are in May! We are gearing up for lots of learning and excitement throughout the final quarter, so be sure to check the blog weekly for important notices and information.

Switch Day!

Over the past few months I’ve been acknowledging the students’ good character traits and positive attitudes by rewarding the class with little pompoms to fill up what I call my “I Like It!” Jar. The class has reached their goal of filling the jar! For a prize, the class has chosen to have a “Switch Day”. This Tuesday, grade 3 students will be switching places with the grade 4 students. (It’s actually an educational ploy to introduce some new concepts to the grade three students and to have the grade four students do some creative writing and review while having fun… Shh! Don’t tell your child!)

Say Cheese:  Dental Clinic Information

The Provincial Dental Clinic will be at GCS for two weeks this month, beginning Monday, May 8.  Please note that only preventive services will be provided and the screening is not a substitute for an annual dental examination.  It is strongly recommended that parents take their children to a dentist for regular examinations and treatment.  The Children’s Dental Care Program assists with the cost of basic dental care delivered in private and public dental offices for children from ages 3 -17.  For more information, please visit http://www.healthpei.ca/dentalhealth.

GCS Cheerleaders Expo

Family and friends are invited to attend the GCS Cheerleaders Expo on Thursday, May 11th at Immanuel Christian School gymnasium. The expo will begin at 4:30 PM, and both Jr. and Sr. cheerleaders are asked to arrive dressed to perform by 4:00 PM sharp. We hope you will join us as our cheerleaders showcase all their hard work, and championship routines!
