This Week @ GBES Dec 17-21

Hey Families,
This is the THE WEEK as we sprint into the holiday break: Santa Gift Mart (SGM) and  Christmas Concert.
Here are a few reminders:

  • Send in $4 for Santa Gift Mart.
  • If you still have items for the Santa Gift Mart- please send them Tuesday morning.  We are running low with numbers. 
  • We can still use volunteers if you are free Tuesday morning.
  • Christmas concert tickets went home LAST week.  We were able to fulfill all ticket requests.  Tickets went home Monday
  • The Christmas concert- we’ll open the doors for seating at 12:45.  Please don’t arrive before 12:30 as the students will just be coming in from lunch.  The concert starts at 1:00.
  • Popcorn day will be running on Wednesday.  It's a fundraiser for the Grade 6 end of year trip. 

This week’s pictures showcase: There are some Grade 3 students showing off their math learning, a grade 4 student using a Chromebook, and Christmas art from Grade ½ and 3. 
Winter weather  is here. This week is forecasted to be snow early in the week and a transition to Sun.  This means we expect to be out for the week at recess and lunch.  Layers, snow pants, and a change of clothes is important for all students.
