GCS Grades 3 and 4

The Adventures of Mrs. Bouter's Class

Spring Fever – Week 37 at GCS

on May 29, 2017

And here we are! One month left of school!

Dress Code Reminder

The flowers are growing fast and so are your children. In fact, students may be growing out of their clothing that fit them last fall! Thank you, parents, for working with us in dressing your children appropriately for school. With the change in seasons, we wish to provide you with this reminder.

As stated in the GCS Handbook the school’s overall dress code standard is modest, clean, neat, and appropriate. Shorts and skirts must not be shorter than just above the knee, which is typically to the tips of the fingers on most children. Girls are permitted to wear sleeveless shirts as long as the straps are wider than three finger widths (please no shirts with thin spaghetti straps). Clothing with a rebellious or negative message are considered dress code violations.
All kindergarten and elementary students must have a second pair of shoes to be worn inside. According to provincial regulations, kindergarten and elementary students are required to wear socks at all times while at school. Sandals are not permitted for this reason.

We are thrilled to see our elementary students wearing GCS apparel on a daily basis. We are even more excited when we see our parents embracing their GCS pride and purchasing clothes for themselves. For those wishing to purchase GCS apparel, please visit our online clothing store at: http://gracecs.entripyshops.com/. New items are being added regularly.

Thanks again for partnering with us. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact me.

ACSI Track Meet

This Wednesday, May 31, students in grades 3-6 will be travelling by bus to UPEI to compete in the annual ACSI Track Meet. We will leave school at 9:00 AM and return to school by 3:00 PM. Please pack a lunch and take a water bottle. Students should wear running shoes, their purple GCS T-shirt (if they have one), and layers of clothing (in case it is cold). Parents are welcome to join us for this day, to cheer on their children.

Spring Potluck Dinner – June 5th 

Our Annual Spring Potluck Dinner will begin at 5:30 in the gym.  Please bring a dish for 6 people to share.  Families with the last name beginning with A – H should bring a main dish or sides. Families with the last names beginning with I – Z please bring desserts.  Salad, Rolls and drinks will be provided by GCS.

Arts Showcase – June 5th
